Here's hoping this lovely weather holds up. Because watching Cali's White Fence (a.k.a. Tim Presley) and his ace backing band rock out as the sun sets sounds like a pretty great way to kick off a weekend packed with fantastic Northside Festival shows. (Like that free The Walkmen/Phosphorescent show in McCarren Park? Fuhgedaboudit.)

Things kick off on Pier 17 this evening at 7pm with a set from peppy Glasgow alt-rockers Paws. And if you can't catch Presley & Co.'s 8pm slot, the crew headlines Knitting Factory a few hours later.

Listen to the White Fence cut "Growing Faith" below.
