*Anyone who knows me, knows I hold bit of a bias against Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and if you know me well, you know I have another Williamsburg much closer to my heart...Nonetheless, there is a pretty big music and arts festival taking place in W'burg and Greenpoint, called "Northside" and while the music is more indie than hip-hop, there are a bunch of galleries displaying work, and an accompanying film festival worth checking out. More info below*
"On any given day there's a ridiculous amount of music and art being made in New York City, but perhaps no more than in the four-mile radius of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. The goal of the Northside Festival isn't lofty: We want to celebrate that community of independent musicians, filmmakers and artists in the place where it thrives the most, shining a light on the sheer talent and creativity that Brooklyn cultivates."
