Bandshell

Noname

Friday, August 3 , 7:30 pm – 10 pm, 2018

Noname, Topaz Jones, and Jazze Belle will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

The outspoken Chicago MC and poet Noname’s acclaimed 2016 solo debut, Telefone, showcased “a potency and urgency in her complicated, spoken word-esque cadences” (Stereogum) that captivated the hip hop world and set her miles apart from this generation of rising talent. The night begins with sets from the electrifying Brooklyn rapper and singer Topaz Jones, who “proved his scholarship by weaving West Coast G-funk with Southern rap flows,” (Pitchfork) and Jazze Belle, a Harlem outfit with “a sound that's both unique and intimate, carving out its own space in the NYC expanding alt soul scene.” (The Deli)

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.
