Union Temple of Brooklyn at Grand Army Plaza is hosting concerts (including Quilt)
Murmrr is a concert series that puts indie bands in "unique venues like churches, ballrooms, museums, warehouses etc." Last year they did a series in Brooklyn with members of Pond and MGMT, and they've more happening in Brooklyn this year.
The upcoming shows are happening at the historic Union Temple of Brooklyn, which is located on Grand Army Plaza at the intersection of Park Slope and Prospect Heights (17 Eastern Parkway). The temple is a 10-story building, built in 1927, "with views of Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanic Garden and beyond." Events are thrown in the third floor Ballroom, "an elegant space measuring 3,575 square feet."
For the Murmrr series, the venue is being dubbed the Murmrr Ballroom. The next show has psych-folk band Quilt, The Shacks, and Sennott on April 20. Tickets for that one are on sale now. Flyer below.
The second show in the 2017 series is B Boys, Future Punx, Dark Tea, and Dion Kerr on May 20. That show is a record release party for B Boys' new album on Captured Tracks, Dada. Tickets for that one are $10, and will be available via murmrr.com (or at the door we assume).
Meanwhile, AdHoc may also be bringing shows to the Temple.
