This past Wednesday night, Williamsburg’s Hope Lounge played host to Finger On The Pulse’s Summer BBQ Blowout #2. Here’s what party titan and FOTP honcho Greg Bresnitz had to say about it (via text, no less):
“Hey man, Here are the photos. The night was great. We had over 350 people come out and we were sold out in the first 90 minutes. Les Savy Fav killed and Tim [Harrington] closed with a set of early 2000s euro gay anthems. Thanks again for the support. Tonight was amazing. Now out drinking!” –Greg
Sure enough, the FOTP BBQ once again sounds like the neighborhood’s best lazy mid-week lurk. From now through August, every last Wednesday of the month, you can enjoy a heaping plate of $5 BBQ, guzzle and dance your ass off (for example, to euro-gay anthems care of luminaries like Les Savy Fav’s Tim Harrington & Seth Jabour).
And while you’re at it, use it as an opportunity to load up on free Incase products for your iPod or iPhone. Like, LOAD UP. Take five, take ten. Spread ‘em around. Snap one on your 3G and shove the rest down your damp pants; belly full, staggering, howling wildly into the night. The next event is July 29th, hope to see you there.

Incase is excited to be a sponsor of this year’s Bicycle Film Festival.
The Bicycle Film Festival (BFF) is a celebration of bicycles through film, art and music. The events kick off this week in New York with a plethora of happenings. Check out John Prolly’s blog for more information.
During select stops of the festival, we’ll be giving away prizes from our Courier Collection to the winners of alleycat races and other activities, so be sure to get involved when the BFF comes to your city.
We’ll be posting updates as the festival treks across the world, so check back with us for continuing coverage.
Summer swooped into Brooklyn last night with Finger On The Pulse’s Summer BBQ Blow Out #1 at the Hope Lounge in Williamsburg.
From a purely gastro-intestinal standpoint, this post is kind of a big deal. Incase Music & Events is very happy to announce that after last year’s run of neighborhood-friendly, chef-curated bar-be-cue events, brothers Greg & Darin Bresnitz (a/k/a Finger On The Pulse) are once more firing up the grills for summer.
From now through August should you find yourself in Williamsburg with $5 bucks to burn and a hankerin’ for gourmet BBQ—do yourself a favor—GO TO ONE OF THESE EVENTS. Hosted every last Wednesday of the month by a cast of adventurous chefs, luminary DJs, and dubiously clad heavy petters, you’re guaranteed to experience at least four things:
- You’ll stuff your face.
- You’ll dance.
- You’ll make new friends. And,
- If you arrive early enough, you’ll walk with a small pile of Incase products for your iPod & iPhone.
The first BBQ kicks off next week, May 27th at the Hope Lounge.
This past Saturday in Indio, CA, our friends at Anthem Magazine—that long running bastion of all things adult and contemporary, debauched and freewheelin’—threw (for the fifth year in a row) a mega house party during the 2009 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
As a principle sponsor of Anthem’s Coachella House Party this year, Incase will be onsite giving away cases for iPhone & iPod via our grabbelton bins.
This year’s event takes place at the McNaughton Ranch and runs 11AM-8PM, Saturday, April 18th, 2009. Imagine 800 party people + pool, hot tub, man-made lake, jet skis, motocross track, bars, catering, fire pits, DJ-volcano, croquet green, secret garden, hot sun, solar winds, noise, giggling, screeching, high fives, big ups, splashing, and… Incase.
Check out more information and location pictures on our MySpace page. Should be a great time!
Joining him will be Incase’s own Dreamweapon (a/ka/ Damon Way) and a banana hammock’s worth of other notable bros from the LA arts & underground scene, including Justin Krietemeyer, John Carlos Harrington, Andrew Miller, Florencio Zavala and Kristian Henson.
And head’s up, every two weeks from here on out Steven will be hosting Bang-Ga-Wrong on Thursday nights at Verdugo Bar. Please come, and then come again and again. Tropical attire optional… but of course, always encouraged.
Oh SXSW, how I love and hate thee. Even a week after the spectacle of it all, the shockwaves still reverberaaaaaate. Allergies? The flu? Exhaustion and insomnia? Pale tongue? Cognitive dissonance? Joint aches? Flat feet? Back pain? Random groaning sounds? Almost total disorientation 24-hours a day? Maybe all the above.
All I know is this— my time in Texas during SXSW was a blur of bands, BBQ and body odor, which is exactly how it always is. This time, however, the morning after arriving home from four days in the bright heat of Austin, I awoke with the most awful illness I’ve experienced in years. Were it not for my reddish, sunburned complexion and lurker beard, I’d certainly look like a sallow, yellow zombie even as I type this now. No sleep, very little food and terribly too much music good and bad… this is the common refrain of most music conference attendees, especially of those returning from SXSW.
For those of you livin’ and lurkin’ in the windy city, the best way we can wish you a Happy New Year is to hip you to the raddest New Year’s Eve party in all Chicago. Join DJ’s Frier Tuck, Logan Bay and Bobby Burg with special guest VJ Brunerd at the Hideout (mayhem begins at 9PM).
For your new tech holiday toys, we’ll be on hand doling out Incase iPod, iPhone & notebook cases while you dance your ass off and guzzle in the new year.
- Name a designated driver
- Drink water
- Get gross on the dance floor
Honk! Bonk! Whee! Tickets available via TicketWeb.
Folks, seriously, pay attention… if this flier doesn’t make you want to go, you’re obviously not ready to party. Take a couple shots, maybe crack your neck, do a few leg lifts and then look again. This one’s gonna be a goner!
