Bandshell

The Shins

Thursday, June 15 , 7 pm – 10:30 pm, 2017

The Shins is presented at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

This concert is sold out; for more information visit the BRIC website.

The Shins are a multiple Grammy-nominated American band formed by James Mercer in Albuquerque, NM in 1996. Their debut full length, Oh, Inverted World caused a seismic shift in the indie rock world upon its release in 2001, singlehandedly ushering in the modern era of the genre. The fourth, and most recent Shins album, Port of Morrow, was released in 2012. Preceded by "Simple Song," the highest charting Shins single to date, Port of Morrow debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and was met with rave reviews: Entertainment Weekly declared it "the band’s best album in almost a decade" and Pitchfork described it as a "triumphant return." Mercer will be joined by Yuuki Matthews (bass), Jon Sortland (drums), Mark Watrous (guitar, keys, vocals), Casey Foubert (guitar) and Patti King (keys). 

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
