“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. Last year’s lineup included Beirut, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Japanther. This year’s shows include Les Savy Fav, Vivian Girls, Rain Machine, Anti-Pop Consortium, Ra Ra Riot and The Antlers. Tickets go on sale Monday, December 14th (or today, 12/9, for Friends of BAM). Full lineup and more info below…
