Brooklyn vs. Baltimore

Post Author: , Nate Dorr + Joe Perez

Dan Deacon, These Are Powers, Double Dagger, USAISAMONSTER, Future Islands, Vivian Girls, Woods and DJ Dog Dick.

Mutters and shouts of “Brooklyn wins!” may or may not have been unduly influenced by the turf. We’re calling it a draw. The 1896, as the venue in Bushwick’s dubbed, could’ve been used to shoot Go or any number of heart-stopping 90s movies about raves, and packed hundreds if not over a thousand bodies for Dan Deacon’s last performance without a full band, a preview of These Are Powers’ new material, USAISAMONSTER as a four-piece, Vivian Girls subbing for Blank Dogs, and you know, lots of people jumping off speakers.
