The National at Beacon Theatre in 2011 (more by Toby Tenebaum)
Bryce and Aaron Dessner (of The National) are curating ‘Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,’ a music festival taking place in BAM’s spaces from May 3 – 5. Each night will include a variety of NYC artists, film screenings, accompanying scores, and a late-night dance party. Lineup announcement coming soon and tickets go on sale in March.
Questlove is curating April 19 & 20 at the same Brooklyn venue:
Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the charismatic drummer and producer of the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop group The Roots, comes to BAM with an immersive musical experience. Enlisting a stellar lineup of artists, Questlove and musicians perform a free-flowing playlist–a kinetic mix of songs and sounds from unexpected musical bedfellows–that celebrates and reflects our current shuffle culture.
That full lineup is also coming soon. Tickets will start at $25.
Jeff Mangum plays BAM this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
