New Colossus Festival and 18th Ward Brewing Presents Sunday Shows at 18th Ward Brewing 7/18/21: Declared Goods Showcase feat. Tuff Sunshine, Women of the Night and Savak/Squirrels from Hell and Nick and the Old Sport
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 Lola Live’s 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.
Because of COVID-19 pandemic-related restrictions and lockdowns, New Colossus couldn’t occur as scheduled. But over the past couple of months, the trio behind New Colossus festival and the folks at 18th Ward Brewing have hosted a live, outdoor concert series featuring local acts at their Bushwick location.
Last month, New Colossus and 18th Ward Brewing hosted a Declared Goods Records Showcase that featured Tuff Sunshine, Women of the Night and Savak. Squirrels from Hell and Nick and the Old Sport opened. Check out photos below.
