Bandshell

Lisa Loeb + The Knights

Saturday, June 17 , 2 pm – 5 pm

Lisa Loeb and The Knights perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented 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.

In 1994, Lisa Loeb’'s tender anthem "Stay (I Missed You)" appeared in the film Reality Bites, skyrocketing up the Billboard charts and making Loeb the first-ever unsigned artist to achieve a #1 single. In the decades since, she has proven to be "a singer-songwriter with immense staying power" (NPR), releasing children's albums, books, and even her own line of eyewear. In conjunction with her 2008 children's album Camp Lisa, Loeb launched the non-profit Camp Lisa Foundation, which helped economically disadvantaged kids attend summer camp. In our annual children's concert, she will bring us an afternoon of fun-loving, sing-along-able numbers for Brooklyn youngsters from this album and the five since.

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