The third annual Bushwick Collective Block Party went down yesterday on Troutman Street and, like most everything else in the city these days, it was bigger than ever before.

The lineup of live music is truly insane this year, even after Busta Rhymes canceled. Still in the mix are Foxy Brown, Cam’ron, and Juelz Santana, among others.

On Wednesday night the Living Gallery in Bushwick was abuzz with punk kids and curious passersby who had stepped inside to soak up the atmosphere of Collective Delusion / Mass Hysteria, a new all-female art exhibition. “Pretty much everyone is involved in the punk or noise scene in some way,” Jennifer Calandra, who curated the event, explained of the participating artists. “They’re mostly ladies I know from the scene here and from going to shows in different states.” The exhibition arrived just in time for the annual punk fest, New York’s Alright, which kicked off last night with shows at the Acheron and Tender Trap and continues throughout the weekend.
