As mentioned, neo-soul vet Erykah Badu is coming to Brooklyn for a big co-headlining show with H.E.R. the Saturday before Mother’s Day at Barclays Center (5/11). The big show is almost sold out, but some tickets are still available.

Later that same night, Erykah will DJ a smaller Brooklyn venue — Analog BKNY — under her DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown guise. Tickets for that late-night party, which has 10 PM doors, are on sale now.

Erykah also has a couple U.S. festival appearances coming up, including the just-announced 2019 edition of Smokin’ Grooves. That goes down Juen 15 on The Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA and the lineup also includes Usher, Ella Mai, Daniel Caesar, Kali Uchis, Common, T-Pain, The-Dream, Ravyn Lenae, The Pharcyde, Twista, Slum Village, Phony Ppl, Kari Faux, and more. Tickets go on sale Saturday (5/4) at noon PST. Full lineup and poster below.

Erykah also plays the Riverfront Jazz Festival in Dallas, which goes down Labor Day Weekend. Her only other dates are overseas, including NOS Primavera Sound in Portugal.
