Brooklyn Bowl

Brooklyn Bowl reopening in September (initial lineup)

After being shut down for over a year because of COVID, Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg will open its doors again in September. “After getting through the past year in New York City, we’re all ravenous for outstanding live music and a communal experience – not to mention some beer and a little bowling,” co-founder Charley Ryan says.

“Brooklyn Bowl’s superlative, wide-ranging lineup has something for everyone, and we can’t wait to give our fans the magic feeling that only a live show can give,” co-founder Peter Shapiro adds.

They’ve announced a lineup of over 50 shows coming up at the venue, including new and recently announced dates, postponed shows from before the pandemic, and more. Things kick off on September 8 with reggae royalty The Wailers (tickets), and there are also shows from Tauk (on October 2), Tank and the Bangas (on September 17), The New Mastersounds (on October 8-9), Talib Kweli (on October 14-15), Drive-By Truckers (on November 3-6), Antibalas (on November 12-13), Marco Benevento (on November 27), The Hold Steady (on December 1-4), Bully (on December 14), The Soul Rebels (on April 1-2, 2022), Built to Spill (on May 17-18, 2022), and more.
