The Pequod Review:
This book traces the enormously important music and art scene in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg between the late 1980s and 2010s. Cisco Bradley's narrative is a bit dry and he makes some lazy political and economic arguments regarding the neighborhood's subsequent decline (involving gentrification, rent control changes, etc.). But his book is very well-researched as he focuses on Williamsburg's key venues, radio stations, festivals and musicians (including Little Women, Weasel Walter, Mary Halvorson, Nate Wooley and Connie Crothers, and many others). Recommended.
