Brooklyn Comes Alive hosting tribute to Green Day’s ‘Dookie’

Green Day Dookie

Brooklyn Comes Alive is not only a weekend of unique, jam-oriented musical collaboration, it’s also got some interesting tributes. We already told you about the Allman Brothers tribute and now we’ve got details on the festival’s tribute to Green Day‘s Dookie.

The Dookie tribute will be performed by Kris Meyers and Ryan Stasik of proggy jam band Umphrey’s McGee, along with Aqueous frontman Mike Gantzer. (That same lineup played the album at Summer Camp Music Festival in May.) They’re also promising some other alt-rock and punk covers for the set, including music by Ween, Weezer, and the Ramones. Ryan Stasik, whose band normally plays much lengthier music, remarked, “it’s nice to rock out to some three-minute punk tunes with these badass players.”

Brooklyn Comes alive takes place September 23-24 at Brooklyn Bowl, The Hall at MP, and Music Hall of Williamsburg, and it also features DJ Premier, The Crystal Method, Yuka Honda of Cibo Matto, Dave Harrington of Darkside, George Porter Jr of The Meters, John Scofield, Eric Krasno; members of Primus, Lotus, Antibalas, The Disco Biscuits, Trey Anastasio Band, RatDog, Terrapin Family Band, Jack White’s band, and Prince’s band; a tribute to Jamiroquai; and more.

Tickets for Brooklyn Comes Alive are still available, and we’re also giving away tickets on Facebook.

In related news, Umphrey’s McGee are also touring with Sinkane.
