    Well the worst dimension of this is if you are sitting farther back you're not going to see anything since I imagine they won't be projecting the performance onto the screens.

    They only showed like 3 songs from Bjork's set last year on the screens (the rest of the show they just played the same visuals that were projected behind her on the giant backdrop). That was pretty disappointing.

    That reminds me of how annoying it was during her 2007 performance when shots of the Reactable monopolized the side screens on the Coachella stage.

    Seriously. I was hoping for a Los Angeles date but wasn't expecting this.



    As for Paul McCartney, I think I might try going to Elysian Park for the concert. My friends and I sometimes go there to drink and hang out during dodger games. There is a spot where you can get a really good view of the whole stadium and I'm fairly sure that we would be able to hear the music. I'm just hoping it wont be too crowded.

    Neutral Milk Hotel at the Bowl should be magnificent. Shame it's on a Thursday, or else I'd make the trip. Sitting at the back of the Hollywood Bowl with nothing on the screens and a dimly lit stage would be a damn fine way to catch NMH.

    CELEBRATE BROOKLYN! 2014 LINEUP
    WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 8:00 P.M.
    JANELLE MONÁE
    Opening Night Concert
    FREE
    Over the course of one EP (Metropolis: Suite 1 (The Chase), 2007) and two critically acclaimed concept albums (The ArchAndroid, 2010 and The Electric Lady, 2013), Janelle Monáe has revealed herself as one of the most original pop voices of her generation: at once futuristic, retro, and totally of the moment. Protégé of Big Boi, signed to Bad Boy, and the founder of her own Wondaland Art Society, she is "a super-musical cross between James Brown, Judy Garland, André 3000 and Steve Jobs, invented to test the desperate incredulity of music journalists" (The Telegraph).
    Prior to the concert, BRIC will hold the Celebrate Brooklyn! Opening Night Gala, honoring Kenneth Adams, President & CEO of Empire State Development and Commissioner of the New York State Department of Economic Development, at 5:30 P.M. Gala tickets can be purchased online at www.BRICartsmedia.org/cb or by contacting Kristina Beaudett at 718.683.5633 or kbeaudett@BRICartsmedia.org.

His son Denardo, an outstanding drummer who debuted on record with his father at the age of 10, convenes a deep and surprising lineup of special guests for a long-overdue exploration and celebration of Ornette's music and spirit, with his own band at the core. Special guests include Afrika Bambaataa, Bill Laswell, Bruce Hornsby, Flea, Geri Allen, Henry Threadgill, James Blood Ulmer, Patti Smith and many more. See www.BRICartsmedia.org for lineup updates.

They head to the Bandshell for Celebrate Brooklyn's annual homage to the trailblazing children's book author and illustrator Ezra Jack Keats, a Brooklyn native who was the first to populate his distinctly urban stories with young people of color.

    AMOS LEE | LAKE STREET DIVE
    FREE
    The Philly-born singer-songwriter Amos Lee, a "gentle genius" (Billboard) of R&B and country-inflected folk, hit his stride with last year's Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, a record that "brims with introspection about life and love" (Entertainment Weekly).

    DUM DUM GIRLS | HOSPITALITY | TEEN
    FREE
    Named in homage to both Iggy Pop and The Vaselines, Dum Dum Girls might be the smartest band ever to put '60s girl group sounds through a garage rock meat grinder.

With on-the-rise Brooklyn acts Hospitality and Teen, both riding high on acclaimed sophomore albums released earlier this year.

    THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 7:30 P.M.
    WARPAINT | YELLOWBIRDS
    FREE
    Warpaint weaves intricate guitar lines, hypnotic vocals, and driving post punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling songs that skirt the line between psychedelia and intimacy. Their self-titled second album, released earlier this year, is "the perfect backdrop for your next midnight séance or moonlit dance party" (Rolling Stone). Brooklyn singer-guitarist-songwriter Sam Cohen's Yellowbirds play bracing rock 'n' roll and bubbling folk, drifting jangle and swiveling R&B with "an endearing raggedness, as though Cohen invited you into his living room" (Pitchfork).

    FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 7:00 P.M.
    Bud Light Music Series
    SHOVELS & ROPE | VALERIE JUNE | SHAKEY GRAVES
    FREE

The astonishing Valerie June, "a major star in waiting" (London Evening Standard), blends rural roots and country that crosses Alan Lomax's acoustic field recordings with biting, electric indie-blues. Shakey Graves conjures sparse, spooky folk with a guitar, a modified suitcase/kick drum and a voice that "jumps from a whisper to a yelp" (Austin360).

    SATURDAY, JUNE 28, 7:30 P.M.
    LUCIANO | SANDRA ST. VICTOR & OYA'S DAUGHTER
    FREE
    Hailed as the greatest hope for the survival of roots reggae, Luciano couples a cosmopolitan style with "soulful, spiritual messages ... that feel pulled straight out of gospel" (The New York Times). The prolific Jamaican overflows with music; he has released 40 records since his 1995 landmark debut, Where There Is Life. The evening begins with a tribute to the beloved community activist Faybiene Miranda led by the powerhouse singer Sandra St. Victor and featuring students from the Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy, which Miranda ran in Brooklyn until her passing.

    SATURDAY, JULY 5, 7:00 P.M.
    ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT FEATURING TALIB KWELI | GLENN KOTCHE | AJA MONET

    An elevated hybrid of jazz, hip-hop, and R&B leaps from the Grammy-winning fingers of the "supple, simmering pianist" (NPR Music). Robert Glasper--a fusion that finds its most potent expression with his exceptional band Robert Glasper Experiment. He comes to the Bandshell with the stalwart Brooklyn MC Talib Kweli on board to add his lyrical prowess to the holiday weekend. The versatile percussionist and composer Glenn Kotche's solo work--on glorious display in Adventureland, released earlier this year--is "as rooted around high-brow concepts as it is in rhythmic dynamicity and melodic bemusement" (Pitchfork). Aja Monet, the youngest ever winner of the New York City's Nuyorican Poets Café Grand Slam Champion title, takes the stage for an opening set.

    THURSDAY, JULY 10, 7:00 P.M.

    With its signature rack of junk and an endless arsenal of sounds, Alloy Orchestra, "the best in the world at accompanying silent films" (Roger Ebert), returns to Celebrate Brooklyn! with the NYC premiere of its original score to He Who Gets Slapped (1924), the tragic tale of a brilliant scientist who loses his research--and his wife--to a dishonest man and winds up a down-and-out circus clown with a very peculiar act.

    THURSDAY, JULY 17, 8:00 P.M.
    SHEN WEI DANCE
    FREE
    The Chinese-born, NYC-based Shen Wei is internationally renowned for his cross-cultural, boldly visual movement-based works, the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremonies being among his best-known choreographic spectacles. This evening-length program centers on his Rite of Spring, a lushly physical expression of Stravinsky's great score. "Shen Wei's Rite reclaims the ambitious, hopeful modern spirit bubbling at the time Stravinsky and Nijinsky created their 1913 original--that is, unembarrassed to think and aspire to more" (Boston Globe).

    Asian Dub Foundation's trademark fusion of punk, electronic beats, reggae, bhangra, and hip-hop has attracted many famous fans, from Primal Scream to Radiohead, Sinead O'Connor to Chuck D, all former touring partners and studio collaborators. In a special BRIC commission, the iconic London band performs the world premiere of its new original live score to George Lucas' feature directorial debut THX 1138 (1971), a chilling dystopian fantasy set in an Orwellian future where mood-stabilizing drugs are mandatory, sex is prohibited, and a young Robert Duval quietly rages against the system. Before the film, Taylor McFerrin layers vocals, beat boxing, samples, and live instruments in a one-man performance that "builds from his roots deep in '60s soul to his vision of future hip-hop" (Resident Advisor).

    SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 7:30 P.M.
    ST. VINCENT | SAN FERMIN
    FREE
    Celebrate Brooklyn!'s 36th season concludes with a Festival debut by St. Vincent, whose "bold and almost jarringly confident fourth record, St. Vincent, does not sound like it was recorded here on Earth" (Pitchfork). The free concert begins with the orchestral folk-pop of Brooklyn composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone's San Fermin.

    I don't mind the NYC stuff because I'm always looking for a reason to go back and hope that one of these times there will be a good enough run for me to go.

    Every few months we go over this... and every few months everyone comes to the conclusion that this is a general "Upcoming Shows" thread and not simply a "Los Angeles Upcoming Shows" thread (or "Californian", etc).

    Honestly, as someone who travels a lot, particularly to New York as I have a few clients and family in the NYC area, I appreciate these posts. And am now considering trying to time an August client site visit that's currently being scheduled to coincide with the Blood Orange date in Central Park.

    Maybe I am wrong but I always consider this a place where full tours get listed when the are posted. I know there is a lot of one off L.A. shows posted, but overally shouldn't it be a thread of full tours. Listing a bunch of brooklyn appreciaton shows is cool, however it should be in a east coast thread? The SF thread show people do not post every san francisco show in here when it is posted.
    you are soooooooo good lookin

    I don't think we need 12 paragraph descriptions of shows in NYC. If it's concise it's fine but does anyone really want to read all that shit?
