Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival - Patty Griffin- Opening Night Concert ( 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, 8:00 P.M.
PATTY GRIFFIN
Opening Night Concert
FREE

American folk icon Patty Griffin’s timeless songs are “sharp character sketches whose surface modesty often belied a piercing heart” (Boston Globe) that stand among the wonders of the modern songwriting world. Her singing, which possesses startling power and emotion, is as unmistakable and inimitable as her writing. American Kid (New West Records, May 7) is her first album of mainly new material since 2007’s Children Running Through (2007). In between, she made the GRAMMY®-winning Downtown Church (2010) and became a member of Band of Joy, the group in which leader Robert Plant and his cohorts meld British and American folk, rock and spiritual music. These are just the latest creative endeavors in a two-decade career that has consistently brought her immense acclaim for her live performances and recordings, and seen covers of her iconic songs by the Dixie Chicks, Reba McEntire, Emmylou Harris, Bette Middler, Miranda Lambert, Solomon Burke and Kelly Clarkson, among others.

Prior to the concert, BRIC will hold the Celebrate Brooklyn! Opening Night Gala, honoring Festival Artistic Director Rachel Chanoff and BRIC Board of Trustees member Mark Cheffo, at 5:30 P.M. Gala tickets can be purchased online at www.BRICartsmedia.org/cb or by contacting Angela Thurston at 718.683.5633 or athurston@bricartsmedia.org.

Following the concert, at 10:00 P.M., gala guests and Friends of Celebrate Brooklyn! (i.e., members) are invited to the Opening Night After-Party featuring DJ Rita Houston, WFUV Program Director and host of the popular Friday night show The Whole Wide World with Rita Houston.

The Other F Word, LA ( 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm )

The Other F Word is a play that shows how a tiny thing like a pen can transform people's lives forever," said playwright Alyson Mead. "I was inspired by today's social and political activism, often done online, where people may never meet one another face to face. In following four characters through a shared experience like the one depicted in the play, I was pleasantly surprised by where they led me."

The Other F Word is about four strangers who meet one afternoon at a focus group tasked with marketing pens specifically designed for women. Daniel, Carol, Roxanne and Evie each have a unique story to tell, but will they find common ground at the conference table, or allow their beliefs to divide them forever? What happens when people decide to put human beings before marketing? The Other F Word answers those questions in a funny, moving and ultimately empowering comedy.

"It was the voice of The Other F Word that pulled me in right away," said director Danielle Ozymandias. "The characters in the play had me from page one, and I knew I was in for a thrilling ride."

The play will run for four performances at the Lounge Theater during the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

From the Artist:
I dedicate this solo art exhibit to my Poppa-Arthur
“Art” John

Clow, December 19, 1932-December 3, 2012. Poppa loved nature and the
landscape...he taught me how to tell the difference between a red oak
and white oak tree. I always make sure I have a small pocket knife with me because he always carried one and it reminds me of him. My Poppa was the epitome of love and kindness and I strive to be more like him...he will always be in my heart.


Bio:
Jamie-Lou Nicol was born in Kingston, Ontario in 1981 and raised in the
small town of Verona located north of Kingston. Nicol graduated from
the Sheridan College Crafts and Design program with a major in Advanced Glass Forming. Over the years, she has exhibited her artwork in Ontario at numerous galleries and arts and craft shows. Most recently Jamie-Lou articipated in the group show “CHROMA” at #Hashtag gallery and exhibited her own solo show “Perception of Landforms 2009-2012″ at Crema Coffee Co., both located in Toronto, Ontario.

Jamie-Lou uses various art mediums to express the conceptualization of
topography, cartography, the cycle of nature and how it connects with
the birth, life and death sequence of the Universe. She currently lives and
works as an artist in the west end of Toronto.


About:
Jamie-Lou Nicol has been an artist ever since her parents gave her
something to scribble with. She grew up in the small town of Verona,
Ontario with a loving family and a house full of pets. While attending
Sheridan College for glass blowing her roommates included a 200 pound
pot bellied pig (that shared her love for popcorn), a dachshund, 2 cats and
3 humble, red foot tortoises. She loves snail mail, dance parties, looks
10 years younger than her actual age, is a libra-scorpio cusp born and
covets her collection of writing utensils. Her artwork has been described as colourful, whimsical, obscure, textural, unpredictable and enigmatic.
Jamie-Lou currently lives and works as an artist in Toronto, Ontario
with her miniature dachshund, calico cat and aquarium full of fish. During
the warm weather you’ll find her sketching under the trees in High
Park and going for long strolls through the city. Someday you will find her
living in an A-Frame studio in the woods, beside a river with a willow
tree.

Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival - Mavis Staples And Cody ChesnuTT ( 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm )

FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 7:30 P.M.
MAVIS STAPLES | CODY CHESTNUTT
FREE

NPR Music has said that Mavis Staples’ voice “possesses a sultry, burnt-sugar glow,” and that “she turns a simple pop song into a lament that could move a listener to tears.” The soul legend won a host of new fans with her 2010 GRAMMY®-winning Jeff Tweedy collaboration You Are Not Alone, and she remains "one of the world's mightiest gospel pop singers" (Time). Staples shares the bill with the iconoclast Cody ChesnuTT, who combined funk, soul, hip hop, rock and blues on his 2002 double album The Headphone Masterpiece,went quiet,and then returned a decade later, to much acclaim, with last year’s Landing on a Hundred.




CSS Show, Santa Ana ( 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

While nothing can compare to the fondness one has to their hometown, the temptation to live in sunny and glamorous Los Angeles is hard to resist. Some of LA’s newest residents include the ladies of CSS; natives of Brazil, they have temporarily set up residence to record their new album Planta and to prepare for their upcoming US summer tour, hitting many East and West coast cities in June and July.

But before they hit the road CSS has released their new office space dance party of a video for “Hangover”, choreographed by Toni Basil of “Oh Mickey” fame and also directed by Basil and Matt Dilmore. You can watch and share the video HERE.

Songs like "Hangover" stand emblematic of the enigmatic style they collectively harnessed. Co-written with Rancid's Tim Armstrong, it straddles the lines between pop, dance, and punk, while never losing its edge or cheeky sense of humor with lines equating hangovers and heartbreaks.

"It's about being young and having fun," Ana admits. "We hooked up with Tim, and we talked about how much we love reggae and reggaeton. It doesn't necessarily sound like that, but we came up with something that anybody can move to."

 

That energy courses through Planta from the shimmying and shaking electro-fied opener "Honey" to the tambourine dream of "Faith in Love." In many ways, the album's boundlessness has been CSS's goal since the beginning. Other stand-outs included "Dynamite" featuring friend and guest Hannah Blilie of The Gossip.

CSS fans will get their chance to see “Hangover”, “Honey” and the band’s many more danceable tracks this summer on their June and July US tour.

Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival - Calexico, Susana Baca, Radio Jarocho & Akoko Nante Ensemble ( 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm )

SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 7:00 P.M.
CALEXICO | SUSANA BACA | RADIO JAROCHO & AKOKO NANTE ENSEMBLE
TD Bank Series
FREE

The dark drama of Calexico’s desert noir, a mix of traditional Latin sounds with Southwestern country, 50s jazz and rock, “has proved that the borders between styles can be as blurrable, as mutable, as porous as those separating countries and cultures” (Pitchfork). Also on the bill is the great Afro-Peruvian singer Susana Baca, whose “cool, distinct voice (is) as beautiful as any working in pop” (The New York Times); and a wild collaboration between Mexican folklorists Radio Jarocho and the pan-African percussion and vocal group Akoko Nante Ensemble.

CSS Show, PORTLAND ( 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

While nothing can compare to the fondness one has to their hometown, the temptation to live in sunny and glamorous Los Angeles is hard to resist. Some of LA’s newest residents include the ladies of CSS; natives of Brazil, they have temporarily set up residence to record their new album Planta and to prepare for their upcoming US summer tour, hitting many East and West coast cities in June and July.

But before they hit the road CSS has released their new office space dance party of a video for “Hangover”, choreographed by Toni Basil of “Oh Mickey” fame and also directed by Basil and Matt Dilmore. You can watch and share the video HERE.

Songs like "Hangover" stand emblematic of the enigmatic style they collectively harnessed. Co-written with Rancid's Tim Armstrong, it straddles the lines between pop, dance, and punk, while never losing its edge or cheeky sense of humor with lines equating hangovers and heartbreaks.

"It's about being young and having fun," Ana admits. "We hooked up with Tim, and we talked about how much we love reggae and reggaeton. It doesn't necessarily sound like that, but we came up with something that anybody can move to."

 

That energy courses through Planta from the shimmying and shaking electro-fied opener "Honey" to the tambourine dream of "Faith in Love." In many ways, the album's boundlessness has been CSS's goal since the beginning. Other stand-outs included "Dynamite" featuring friend and guest Hannah Blilie of The Gossip.

New Jersey-Cupcakefest 2013! ( All Day )

Taking place Saturday, June 22 at Rutherford’s Lincoln Park Bandshell (176 Park Avenue), this daylong celebration of music and cupcakes includes raffles, vendors, and a cupcake eating contest.

“We have chosen the Montclair Township Animal Shelter because they work tirelessly to find permanent homes for homeless pets. In addition, the Friends of Montclair Township Animal Shelter is an all-volunteer, non-profit  group dedicated to supporting the work of the shelter through fundraising for needs above and beyond the shelter’s budget,” says Jake Vance, co-owner of Sweet Avenue Bake Shop and co-founder of Cupcakefest. “We started Cupcakefest to be able to use our influence in the community to help some of the countless animals in shelters across New Jersey.”

Cupcakefest 2013 is free to attend. Pet supply donations are encouraged. Now in it's sixth year, Cupcakefest has over $15,000 for New Jersey animal organizations.

 

ABOUT SWEET AVENUE BAKE SHOP
