With almost no fanfare and little advance warning, it sounds as if a new 75,000-square-foot event space called the Brooklyn Terminal Project is set to open along the Red Hook waterfront on June 3. That's very soon! Amenities include a "killer sound system to experience your favorite DJs as intended," free parking, and best of all, a "food and vendor village."

Live music and food: Yay! But what is food and vendor village, exactly? That description makes it sound downright medieval, Deadheadish, or maybe even Smurfesque. Ideally Brooklyn Terminal Project's F program will be a mix of all three; we've got a call into the new venue's hotline for some answers.

Here's what we know: Brooklyn Terminal Project is located at Pier 12, or 72 Bowne Street, which is also the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal's address. The summer season festivities commence with a show from Knife Party, an electro-house outfit from Australia who sounds like this.

So, full-on glow-stick territory; also, watch out, strobe-sensitive epileptics! It's sort of like if the Great GoogaMooga in Prospect Park were the Glastonbury Music Festival, this would be Ibiza. Dubstep fans know what we're talking about.
