Posted in music | tour dates on September 9, 2008


No word on a dunk tank or jumping castle, but the Brooklyn Academy of Music sure knows how to throw a party. And they have asked Sufjan Stevens to curate the music component for an evening that will also include DJs, video art, and horseplay. The event, entitled TAKEOVER, takes place Saturday September 27th, 2008 from 9PM to 4AM.

BAM Howard Gilman Opera House will house the musical selections, which features St. Vincent, The Budos Band, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens and Brooklyn Youth Chorus singing Nico Muhly and other works. Our [Asthmatic Kitty's] good friend Deborah Johnson is providing a video installation. For more details on the event, including a list of films and other activities please visit the TAKEOVER website here.

Tickets are $20. BAM's last takeover featured extinct band Be Your Own Pet. Nico Muhly is performing at (le) poisson rouge tonight (9/9). Naomi Shelton recently played Summerstage with members of The Budos Band who are also her Daptone labelmates. More St Vincent tour dates HERE.
