The Alternate Side

A healthy dose of indie music, on Friday nights from 9pm-Midnight.

The Alternate Side is supported by Brooklyn Made, a 500-capacity state-of-the-art music venue, bar, outdoor courtyard and roof deck in the heart of Bushwick.



The Alternate Side is FUV's slant on indie music, hosted by Music Director Russ Borris. The show features a broad range of established and emerging indie rock and other styles, from across the city and beyond.

You may hear artists like Matt & Kim, Antibalas, Toro y Moi, Sleigh Bells, The xx and many others new to the scene, alongside established international artists including Arcade Fire, Bjork, and The Decemberists. It's a kind of laboratory where we experiment with diverse genres and sounds, lots of them made right here in New York City.
