Brooklyn Comes Alive 2017 lineup: Primus mems, DJ Premier, Crystal Method, more

Brooklyn Comes Alive

The third annual Brooklyn Comes Alive takes over three Williamsburg venues — Brooklyn Bowl, The Hall at MP, and Music Hall of Williamsburg — on September 23 & 24 for “two full days of unique supergroups, special tribute sets, and once in a lifetime collaborations.” It’s largely a jam-band thing, with jam staples like John Scofield, Eric Krasno, and members of Umphrey’s McGee, The Disco Biscuits, Lotus, moe., The String Cheese Incident, Snarky Puppy, Trey Anastasio Band, RatDog, Terrapin Family Band, and more, but features musicians from many different types of music. The lineup also includes former Primus member Jay Lane, Les Claypool’s Fancy Band member Mike Dillon, hip hop legend DJ Premier, electronic duo The Crystal Method, Darkside’s Dave Harrington, Cibo Matto’s Yuka Honda, Raja Kassis of Antibalas, R&B legend and Meters member George Porter Jr, Jack White drummer Daru Jones, former Prince bassist MonoNeon, and still more.

Tickets for this unique weekend of musical collaboration are on sale now. Check out the full lineup and watch a recap video of last year’s BCA below:
