Bandshell

BADBADNOTGOOD

Thursday, August 2 , 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, 2018

BADBADNOTGOOD and Charlotte Day Wilson will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

Mixing instrumental hip hop with free improvisation and spacey electronica, the virtuosic Toronto quartet BADBADNOTGOOD lets “the jazz philosophy of music bending to individual musicians’ styles shape their genre-hopping evolution.” (The Seattle Times) Wildly innovative covers and collaborations with the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Tyler The Creator have catapulted the group to stardom. The singer-songwriter and guitarist Charlotte Day Wilson, another BBNG collaborator, possesses a “wide, bright, humid voice” (NPR) that packs a heavy emotional wallop.

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.
