This past Saturday, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I can attest in fact that Brooklyn Came Alive. Allow me to explain, this year for the 4th year in a row Live For Live Music hosted this amazing single day event which sure felt a ton like Jam Cruise or New Orleans Jazz Fest. I say that because within about 8 square blocks in Williamsburg, musicians from the highest echelon of the jam scene got together, in formations they are not known to play in; like one-off supergroups, brand new band debuts and epic tribute sets. The three venues in Williamsburg chosen this year were Rough Trade, Music Hall of Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bowl. I can personally attest that the best part of the Brooklyn music scene revealed itself to me at each one of these unique venues over the 12-hour period I wandered around Williamsburg chasing the groove.Read more Read more
