The Celebrate Brooklyn! season closes on a high note with the one-of-a-kind tUnE-yArDs, whose Nikki Nack from last year was packed with “songs that sound like playgrounds full of street kids ricocheting off each other like bumper cars.” (Pitchfork) The addition of the “free associative, raw and radical” (LA Times) experimental hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces threatens to make this the NYC show of the summer.

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