OK, it’s felt kinda like spring for awhile now, but you know spring is REALLY here when the festivals start popping up. New to the scene for 2012 is Aputumpu, a four-day (March 22-25), multi-venue event self-described as a “musical showcase featuring more than two dozen rising bands comprising a cross-section of the burgeoning Brooklyn music scene.” Named for a “sweet on the inside … rough on the inside” fruit, the festival features some local rad artists who embrace a definite DIY aesthetic. At glitterballnyc, we’re most excited about the lineup at Public Assembly on Friday, March 23 (Facebook invite here), which is set to highlight some great dance-oriented talent like Mux Mool and Bosco Delrey. Get tickets and the full scoop here.
