Northside Festival 2012

We’re a little late on our recap so we’ll keep it brief. Between all the free Heineken and Jameson it was nearly impossible to have a bad time at Northside Festival. Being in the company of NYC hottest startups and of course all that musical talent didn’t hurt much either.

There were a ton of great shows to catch, but some of the standouts were definitely Of Montreal at McCarren Park, Olivia Tremor Control and Twin Sister. We took some great pictures at those shows and we have a full album of the whole festival right here. We’re already excited for next year!
