As part of the ongoing 60th anniversary celebration of the Fred Perry brand and the relaunch of the Fred Perry Subculture Web site, Subculture has offered up these fantastic live videos from the Dot to Dot Festival in May of some of the brightest stars in music right now.

The live video below from Jake Bugg, currently on tour in America with headliners Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Snow Patrol, will be familiar: it’s the song that broke him to the masses, ‘Lightning Bolt’. Kyla La Grange (pictured at top) is no stranger to TGTF either; we’ve got a video of her performing ‘To Be Torn’. And last but not least, we’ve also got live video of San Diego noise rock band Wavves playing their song ‘Bug’. Enjoy all of these videos below.

Preview: Northside Festival

 
By on Friday, 4th June 2010 at 12:00 pm
 

Williamsburg, Brooklyn may be the hipster capital of the world, but the Northside Festival is looking to be well worth wading through throngs of the bespectacled and skinny-jeaned. So named for it’s location in venues throughout the North side of Brooklyn, the art and music festival is now in its second year. Its stated goal is 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”.

Organized by the L Magazine and a collection of other NYC-based blogs, record labels, promoters and industry types, last year’s event saw the likes of the Hold Steady, Bill Callahan and others, and this year the lineup is shaping up to be just as good, if not better. Most of the set times and locations for bands’ performances have yet to be finalized, but here are just some of the bands that will be gracing Brooklyn stages as a part of Northside Festival: ?uestlove (DJ set), Au Revoir Simone , The Fiery Furnaces, Fucked Up, Jody Porter (of Fountains of Wayne), Les Savy Fav, Lissy Trullie, Male Bonding, and Wavves.

In addition to all of this great music, the festival also includes Northside’s inaugural FilmFest, as well as a number of exhibitions, special events and musical performances at more than 25 local art galleries (with help from the Williamsburg Gallery Association).

Four-day Northside badges go for a mere USD50 (approximately £34 at the time of this writing)and grant you “access on a first-come, first-served basis to every show taking place during the festival, in addition to all Northside art and film events. You’ll also be able to walk into tons of local bars and restaurants that will be offering discounts to badge holders on food and booze”. Because entry for badge-holders is first-come, first served, if there is a show you really want to see, it may be best to purchase individual tickets, most of which will be sold at the door the day of the show. Some of them are on sale now, and are listed with ticket links on the festival’s website.

The festival is also running a contest which can be entered here. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a coveted iPad 3G, two VIP All Access badges and a free t-shirt. The two Runner-Up Winners will get two VIP All Access badges and two t-shirts each, and the five 3rd Place Winners are given a regular festival badge and a t-shirt. Please note this contest is open to US residents only.
