Joey Bada$$ playing free Brooklyn show TODAY for a safer J’Ouvert
Joey Bada$$, who is not blind, recently wrapped up a tour with Logic (Barclays Center included), and the Brooklyn rapper plays another hometown show TODAY (8/28). It starts at 4 PM (and goes til 7 PM), which is just an hour and a half from the time of this post.
It's the first annual "Love Yourself" Brooklyn Peace Concert, and its purpose is to raise awareness for a safer J’Ouvert. Here's more details:
In effort to promote a safe summer and safe J'Ouvert 2017, Assemblyman Walter T. Mosley, in partnership with Senator Hamilton, Council Member Cumbo, and District Leader Geoffrey Davis, is hosting the first annual “Love Yourself Brooklyn Peace Concert,” being held on Monday, August 28th from 4-7pm at Medgar Evers College Amphitheater.
Headlined by Brooklyn's own Joey Bada$$, this free community event will also include Caribbean DJ Legends Dahved Levy, Bobby Konders, Host Shani Kulture of Hot 97, and J'Ouvert City International performers, historians and educators, who will present on the rich history of J’Ouvert.
This concert will be the first of many annual events to educate, organize, and unify our youth and local communities to ensure our celebrations move forward free of any and all senseless violence.
Today's show is free with RSVP.
Joey also plays Queens festival The Meadows in September. All dates are listed below.
As Brooklyn Paper points out, there are new regulations to keep this year's J'Ouvert parade -- which starts at Grand Army Plaza on Monday (9/4) at 6 AM -- safer than ever.
