Live Concert Photography: New Colossus Festival and 18th Ward Brewing Presents Summer Sundays at 18th Ward Brewing 9/19/21 feat. Nicole Yun, Crowd the Airwaves, Mary Hood, Docents, and Soft Yes

Co-founded by three New York music industry vets and longtime friends, Lorimer Beacon‘s founder and head Mike Bell, Kanine Records‘ founder and label head Lio Kanine and Kepler Events and Berlin Under As Steven Matrick, The New Colossus Festival over the course of the past couple of years have featured a couple hundred handpicked, emerging indie bands and artists from the US, Canada, the UK, the European Union, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. By design, the festival normally takes place just before  SXSW: the festival’s co-founders view the festival as a pre-SXSW stopover that will give its emerging acts an opportunity to organically gain exposure – while filling a critical void in the festival circuit.

Throughout the Spring, Summer and very early Fall, the trio behind New Colossus festival and the folks at 18th Ward Brewing have hosted a live, outdoor concert series featuring local and regional acts at the brewery’s Bushwick location.  The series ended in late September — and the penultimate show featured Eternal Summers‘ frontwoman Nicole Yun, punk act Crowd The Airwaves, Mary Hood, noise rock outfit Docents and Soft Yes.

As always, photos from the showcase below.
