Cousin Earth and Friends Return to Brooklyn for Their Yearly Mid-winter Bash
Wintercourse, a one-night-only midwinter music festival hosted by Brooklyn’s own Cousin Earth, returns to the Knitting Factory for its 8th year. Local rockers Bushicks begin the festivities which are then rounded out by Funky Dawgz Brass Band, Cousin Earth and Bella’s Bartok.
Initially a music and comedy festival, Wintercourse is the brainchild of Corey J. Feldman, ukulele bassist for Cousin Earth. The show has gravitated towards focusing more on music in recent years and has featured performances by acts such as The Reformed Whores, Space Bacon, Chromatropic, Teddy Midnight, The Matty Carl Project, Mercury Landing, Stevie and The Lion and many others.
“This year’s lineup is fire!” says Corey J.Feldman, ukulele bassist for Cousin Earth. “This is going to be the best Wintercourse yet!”
The concert, presented by NYS Music, takes place Saturday, January 5th at The Knitting Factory (361 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn) Doors are at 7:30pm and the music kicks off at 8pm. The show is 21+ and ID will be required. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the show.
