OOYH BK Summer Hiatus

Hey Friends, and thanks for checking in! I just wanted to write a quick note for two reasons. One is as a HUGE thank you to everyone who has put something into Out of Your Head BK for the past year and a half (be it playing, or attending, or hosting, or co-curating, or for being Frank the Dog) We’ve had an awesome run at Freddy’s Bar, and are thankful for everything they’ve done for us. It was a year and a half of seriously inspiring concerts for me. And an extra huge thanks to Josh Sinton, Jesse Stacken, and Dustin Carlson for sharing in the duties of being a co-curator…making that process extra fun for me.

The other reason for this post is to announce that we will be going on a bit of a necessary hiatus for the summertime. The reasons for this are plentiful, and I feel like it is a great time to take a bit of a breather as many people leave town for the hot months. We are planning to return full force and better than ever next Fall. I’m hoping to finally archive some of the concerts on the website, and update the media section. I also plan to have live streaming of the shows when we come back, so you don’t have to be in Brooklyn to enjoy what we’re doing. All that is coming soon. Definitely watch this space for updates, and I can’t thank everyone enough for the support and love the series had received thus far!

Full OOYH BK Schedule for Jan/Feb/March/April!!!!

Here it is! The full schedule for the next four months of Out of Your Head Brooklyn. I had a great time making these lineups with Jesse Stacken, who offered an entirely fresh perspective on combining these musicians in new and interesting ways! Can’t wait to hear this music!!!

As I was typing the schedule out I also realized that February 17 will be our One Year Anniversary Show! We usually do something special for anniversaries, but this slipped my mind until now. Currently, at the very least, it is two AMAZING bands on the schedule, as well as being Danny Gouker’s birthday. Both of these are great things…maybe we’ll find something else to help celebrate as well. But for sure come out and we’ll throw a huge party! And, as always, these dates are all on Sunday nights (first and third of every month) at Freddy’s Bar (627 5th Ave, South Slope BK). Always a brand new band, all improvised, and never a cover. Hope to see you out!

OOYH Brooklyn Schedule Sep/Oct/Nov/Dec

Welcome to the new Out of Your Head Brooklyn site. It’ll be a better place to come for info on the series in Brooklyn, as it varies a good amount from the Baltimore series…mostly in location! Huge thanks to Nick Prevas for making the switch so easy for us.

After a short break for OOYH BK we’re back with an all-new schedule for the next four months. I can’t thank my friend Josh Sinton enough for his help co-curating this cycle of OOYH. He had a very unique approach to scheduling and he’s come up with an amazing set of bands that will be performing from now until December. Some sets to watch out for are a quartet of drummers (!) on November 4, and Baltimore/Brooklyn night on October 7, when three friends from OOYH Baltimore will come up to perform on the Brooklyn series.

As always these shows are 1st and 3rd Sundays at Freddy’s Bar and Backroom (627 5th Ave, South Slope, BK). Sets are at 9:30 and 11pm, always no cover but donations are encouraged and greatly appreciated. Hope to see you out at some of these…I am VERY excited for what’s in store. If you see Josh (and I’m sure you will) buy him a beer for his efforts…he put a lot of work into this!
