On your mark, get set, STRUM!!!! It’s that time of the season my guitar slinging friends and you know what I am talking about. Yes, the 2013 Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show will be here in a mere seven days and that’s a week for those of you not paying any attention. So get your guitar and bass needs in order and make the list for easier shopping at the show. Check out the super cool poster for the event.
Just the other day, the Brooklyn Bowl once again played host to the Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show and I made some time to take a look around and see what was happening for those of you who might not have been able to attend. Let’s get down to the adventure shall we…..
Attention all guitar players, bass players, and any of those who just love to tinker around on the six or four string implements of music, have we got an event to tell you about. Check this out my axe slinging friends as we are just one week away from the 2nd Annual Brooklyn Springtime Guitar Show that will be held at the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg Brooklyn, NYC.
In case you didn’t see the date, it’s indeed on April 1st 2012 and that is no joke. I wouldn’t do that to you wonderful readers at all. The event is FREE OF CHARGE and will run from 11am until 5pm and will be your place to buy, sell and perhaps even trade your instrument with another interested party. I attended last year with my colleague in arms Skeleton Pete and together we found lots of awesome guitar craftsmen, technology innovators and those who took a usual way of doing something and turned it into something much more different and effective. My instrument of choice is drums, but that did not stop me from meeting some really cool people and enjoying the fun filled day. You can check out my coverage via this LINK. Skeleton Pete’s narrative can be viewed HERE in the event that you want to take a look and I think that you should 🙂 In case you were curious, we both shall be covering the event again.
This fantastic affair will be hosted by DJ Uncle Mike and Lisa Sharken. For directions and to get a better idea about the space itself and the food offerings in there, I have pasted their Yelp! page below.

I think I have mentioned a number of times in my writings how I am a former Metal drummer but that I have always had a love for the six-string, even though I never managed to learn how to play it. Despite this being the case in my day, when the chance to see what was happening at the Brooklyn Bowl for the Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show arose, I headed down there with my good buddy and fellow Blogger Skeleton Pete and hopefully spark you readers into checking out the next event. This would also be my first time at the Brooklyn Bowl and this establishment is located down in Williamsburg Brooklyn off N11th Street on Wythe Avenue.
