The Brooklyn Night Bazaar is a roaming gathering of some the borough's finest artists, designers, food vendors and culture vultures. Should you need to buy whimsical graphic T-shirts for your loved ones while eating fancy tacos, know that they are there for you.
The event kicked off in October at Dekalb Market, and next week it's moseying on over to 149 Kent Ave, one of Williamsburg's coziest warehouse performance spaces. Starting Thursday, Dec. 15, The Bazaar will bring together more than a hundred local food, drink and merchandise vendors for your purchasing enjoyment, and will also feature art installations, films and exacting set design from Julien De Smedt Architects
But what about the music, man? Whatever happened to the music? Relax, they got that also. The Bazaar will feature performances from some of Brooklyn's biggest names, including Titus Andronicus, The Hold Steady and former (sigh) LCD Soundsytem dude James Murphy for the weekend. They've also recruited honorary Brooklynites (they're here often enough) F***** Up and up-and-comers like the indie pop group Big Troubles and the performance art-damaged dance group Midnight Magic. We've got the exact schedule below; you can grab tickets here. The Warehouse opens at 5 p.m. and will keep going until 1in the morning.
