Van Dyke Parks & Clare & the Reasons playing Brooklyn (and other shows)

Van Dyke Parks

Van Dyke Parks – legendary collaborator, producer and songwriter – has already been noted as on the schedule for Pop Montreal, which runs September 29th-October 3rd and also includes Swans. And like Swans, he’ll also play a Brooklyn show in October. It happens at the Bell House on Saturday, October 2nd. Tickets go on sale today (soon, by noon).

That show is with Clare & the Reasons, a group Parks played with on the West Coast earlier this year. Clare & the Reasons also play May 12th at Joe’s Pub (tickets) and have more shows in Europe with Van Dyke Parks this summer.

Van Dyke Parks performed at the Hal Willner-produced “I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues!” show at Lincoln Center last January. Videos of VDP playing a few songs (including one with Brian Wilson), with all currently known dates, below…
