This week in 24/Seven

Each week we'll preview what you can expect in our 24/Seven print edition, out Thursday for you southern Brooklynites and Friday for the downtown neighborhoods.

Highlights include:

Music festivals: All those fantastic Brooklyn festivals are almost upon. Celebrate Brooklyn! kicks off June 8 with David Bryne, and the first ever Northside Festival takes over Greenpoint and Williamsburg June 11-14, with performances from the Hold Steady, Bishop Allen, Sunset Rubdown, and too many more to list here, over the four days, as well as gallery events. If the $45 badge is still a too pricy, you can get in on the festival for free by volunteering. E-mail volunteers@northsidefestival.com with your name, age, availability and why you want to volunteer at Northside to take advantage of that.

Theater: Indulge in self-medication, sort of, with the The Antidepression Festival, a month of plays and performances dedicated to lifting those blues away. It starts June 5 at the Brick Theater.

Columns: On the street, Pumps & Pleats checks in at the Brooklyn Flea, and in the kitchen, The Reporter's Table dives into a mesclun salad, and the Kitchen Klutz tries her hand at Frito pie.

Albums: Randy Stern, co-founder of Brooklyn punk-party band The Nerve, celebrates the release of his debut solo effort, "Give," a two-year effort, with a show at the Bitter End June 13.

Concerts: In even more music news, Brooklyn boy Kevin Devine culminates a nation-wide tour in his hometown, with a show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg June 7, and the alt-rock band The Posies make a rare performance, playing the Bell House June 12.
