Five DTBK Live Performance Venues To Check Out This Season
In what feels like no time at all, the music scene in Brooklyn has gone from being off the beaten path to being the path itself. The month of November alone will see The Jonas Brothers, Ariana Grande, and The Black Keys. From the 19,000-seat Barclays Center arena to the 400-seat Roulette Intermedium theater, here are five destinations for your auditory pleasure.
Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue
Catch The Black Keys, The Chainsmokers, Logic, The Jonas Brothers and Ariana Grande in the next six weeks. The arena also boasts the most incredible concessions around: Fuku fried chicken sandwiches, Habana Outpost Cubans, and mozzarella sticks from Parm.
BAM, 651 Fulton Street
In November, you can witness Brazilian choreographer Bruno Beltrão’s street style meets athletic hip-hop dance performance in Inoah, featuring the ten male dancers of Grupo de Rua. FYI: Tacombi (for tacos and margs) is right across the street.
ISSUE Project Room, 22 Boerum Place
Experimental performances are the name of the game here; The Wall Street Journal calls it “Brooklyn’s leading avant-garde venue.” Grab some adventurous colleagues and secure tickets to Ne(x)tworks’ final show or the FOR/WITH mini series, which celebrates “the collaborative process between performer and composer.”
Boudoir, 135 Atlantic Avenue
Three sets of live jazz every Monday, plus elegant cocktails and classic bar snacks. Enough said.
Roulette Intermedium, 509 Atlantic Avenue
Founded in 1978 as a concert space in TriBeCa, the musical innovators moved to Downtown Brooklyn in 2011 and have been putting on gorgeous shows ever since. Make sure to get tickets in advance for The Namâd Trio, Shenkar and Face The Music.
