Bandshell

Courtney Barnett, Julien Baker + Vagabon

Wednesday, July 25 , 6 pm – 10 pm, 2018

Courtney Barnett performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

Courtney Barnett has been celebrated as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-writer who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. Rolling Stone praised her as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around—at any level, in any genre… a self-strafing humorist á la Lena Dunham who’s also a Dylan-style word ninja." She's a critical darling with an adoring fanbase to match.

Julien Baker’s solo debut, Sprained Ankle, was one of the most widely acclaimed works of 2015. The album, recorded by an 18-year-old and her friend in only a few days, was a bleak yet hopeful, intimate document of staggering experiences and grace, centered entirely around Baker’s voice, guitar, and unblinking honesty. 

Cameroon-born Laetitia Tamko, better known as Vagabon, is a multi-instrumentalist and producer who moved to New York City with her famliy in her teens. A tough transition for any teenager, her lo-fi synthy music tells the story of a searching soul who is blazing a new trail in the indie landscape. "Tamko’s voice is enormous but delicate, and she belts it with gusto throughout Infinite Worlds, spinning out little effortless arias amid songs Modest Mouse may have written in another life," states Pitchfork.
