Bandshell

Antibalas

Thursday, July 12 , 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, 2018

Antibalas, Combo Chimbita, and DJ Nickodemus will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

The Brooklyn afrobeat juggernaut Antibalas’ live shows have become the stuff of legend. Last year’s Where the Gods Are in Peace, released on the storied Bushwick label Daptone Records, “takes their lustral party vibes and adds layers of activist lyrics, satire and incendiary rhythms to create their strongest, and most politically charged, album to date.” (Drowned in Sound) With an opening set of high energy, locally-sourced tropical futurism from Combo Chimbita and DJ Nickodemus of Turntables on the Hudson fame presiding, it’s a global dance party born in Brooklyn.

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.
