If you have not yet been to Brooklyn Bowl, you should know that this is also a wonderful concert event space and obviously a bowling alley. You can shop around with the vendors and then bowl a few frames if you like. Should you get hungry they are also the home of a Blue Ribbon restaurant that makes an amazing burger and many other things. I will be planning some Foodspotting if I have time to eat this time around. You can be rest assured that both Skeleton Pete and I will once again be on point to bring you the inside scoop about this event to the best of our abilities. Stay tuned to this channel for that story and much, much more when it happens.

Last Autumn, my good friend and occasional comrade en arms Skeleton Pete hit the Brooklyn Guitar Show that was being hosted by our fellow music scribe Lisa Sharken at the Brooklyn Bowl. We had such a great time and documented the proceedings HERE in case you want to check it out. With that being the case, when Lisa said that they were doing it once again in the Spring we locked it into the schedule to be a part of it. Come along with us in this blog post so you can see what kind of stuff you missed out on.
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.

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.
