BAM's Music Fest Crossing Brooklyn Ferry This Weekend
In anticipation of this weekend's Crossing Brooklyn Ferry new music festival, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) compiled a video playlist highlighting some of the 30+ artists in the line up. Curated by The National's Bryce and Aaron Dessner, the three-day event will take over BAM's main building at 30 Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. While bands are playing on the Opera House stage and in the BAMcafe, there will also be films with original scores in the cinemas. Featured acts include The Walkmen/Sharon Van Etten (May 3), St Vincent/The Antlers (May 4) and Beirut/Atlas Sound (May 5, which is sold out). Tickets are available for the first two nights at $45 each along with the full schedule at CrossingBrooklynFerry.com.
