"Launched in 2007, Sounds Like Brooklyn Music Festival (formerly known as Brooklyn Next) is BAM's annual showcase of the some of the most innovative music coming out of the borough. The program features concerts in the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, BAMcafé, and partner venues around Brooklyn that highlight the breadth and depth of music produced by Brooklyn artists working in jazz, hip-hop, rock, electronic, brass band, and every other hybrid genre in between. As a vehicle for artist development, Sounds Like Brooklyn focuses on emerging and mid-career musicians working at the intersection of innovation and tradition."
BAM's Sounds Like Brooklyn Festival will be happening this year January 29-30 and February 4-6 at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, BAMcafé and other venues around town.

Never seen a show at the Opera House. I am assuming it's seated. Want to see LSF, but I also want to show up late so that I don't have to see Vivian Girls.

how is rain machine headlining a date of this? Kyp's side-project is fucking terrible. Does anyone even like him solo?

I'm sure it wont stay seated. Even last year when Beirut played the audience rushed the stage...and, I mean, Les Savy Fav crowd vs. Beirut...

This event was really fun! The images serve as a proof that it was really an unforgettable night. For sure, this will be a great talk of the town for the people because they enjoyed much.
