  • Animal Encounter, 4 pm
    Curious as to how Snappy the turtle got her name? Want to watch the snake gobble a mouse? Join Alliance Naturalists in learning more about the animals in the Audubon Center’s collection and even assist in an actual feeding.

Bandshell

Celebrate Brooklyn!: Lucinda Williams

Thursday, June 25 , 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm, 2015

Lucinda Williams performs at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website

Last year’s Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, “a career highlight,” (Pitchfork) solidified Lucinda Williams as perhaps America’s greatest barroom storyteller—a singer-songwriter of fierce honesty and conviction, articulate and rough in equal measure. Expect a set that careens from stripped down acoustic ballads to rambling electrified country-blues stomps. The powerhouse local singer Jason Walker adds some sublime gospel-infused soul to the mix.

 Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
