The Local Correspondents Music Festival

Bar 4, home of Brooklyn’s best open-mic night, has recently undergone a facelift. Coinciding with its grand re-opening (actually it never really closed, but whatever) the folks behind Local Correspondents are teaming up with Bar 4 to bring you the first ever Local Correspondents Music Festival. Four nights, 49 great up-and-coming Brooklyn/New York singer-songwriters, lots of beer and wine, and a friendly environment - what more could you ask for? How about the haunting artwork of Amy Shawley to darken the evenings. Her art will be on display and for sale throughout the festival in the bar.
