This Saturday, October 22, Brooklyn Comes Alive is taking over Williamsburg for the second year in a row. Inspired by the vibrant musical communities of Brooklyn and New Orleans, the festival is bringing over 50 musicians together to perform in specially-crafted supergroup formations for once-in-a-lifetime collaborations across three nearby venues within a 10-minute walking radius. From rock to jam, funk to jazz, electronic to hip-hop, there’s something for everyone. The full lineup can be found here.
Brooklyn Comes Alive has also added a few more artists to the lineup, including a special cocktail hour with DJ Logic, keyboardist Steve Molitz (Particle), drummer Scotty Zwang (formerly Dopapod), and bassist Luke Bemand (lespecial) at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Maurice Brown (Tedeschi Trucks Band) and Chauncey Yearwood (High & Mighty Brass Band) will also be joining the Tribute to J Dilla with Borahm Lee, Adam Deitch, Adam Smirnoff, Nate Edgar, and Stu Brooks. With Brooklyn being known for its artistic residencies, you’ll never know who else might show up to play during this daylong event!
Today, the festival announces the full schedule for all three venues. From brunch at The Hall at MP Taverna to late-nights at Brooklyn Bowl and Music Hall of Williamsburg, the day is to be jam-packed with non-stop music, first-time experiences, and a vibe only available in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets to the event grants you access to all three venues, and can be found here. More information can be found on the event’s website.
