What: Rocky Road showcase at the Northside Festival
Where: The Grand Victory, 245 Grand St., 347-529-6610
When: Thursday, June 11, $13, 10:30
Why: Sure, Ringo Deathstarr has one of the best band names ever, but the Austin trio also knows its way around trippy psychedelia shoegazing, taking listeners on its own version of a magical mystery tour on such records as God’s Dream and Mauve. Elliot Frazier, Daniel Coborn, and G. G. Alex are headlining the Rocky Road showcase at Northside Festival on Thursday night at the Grand Victory with Casual Strangers, New Myths, Armstrong Leigh, and RIG1. The Northside Festival runs through June 14 in venues all over Brooklyn’s north side, featuring film June 8-10, innovation speakers, panel discussions, and a trade-show expo June 11-12, music June 11-14, and art walks June 13-14; among the other bands performing on June 11 are White Suns at Aviv, Health at Baby’s All Right, Femi Kuti & the Positive Force at Brooklyn Bowl, the Rosewood Girl at Pete’s Candy Store, and Sharkmuffin at the Gutter.
