Make Music New York: BK Takeover – June 21st

When Cavalier approached me early this spring about planning for the Make Music New York summer concert series, I was excited about the prospect of seeing my favorite Brooklyn performers take over whole neighborhoods for their shows. Between Cavalier, The Dugout, The Project, Nuclear Family and Real Live Show, I’ve seen some spectacular live performances at notable venues all around New York City. They opened for Little Brother at Southpaw to an impressive crowd. The collective known as The Trifecta has been paying dues consistently in New York for over two years with the realization coming just on the precipice of summer. Nuclear Family and The Project each released records in the past year, playing off their digital marketing schemes to get spins on YouTube and college radio. But the strength of this movement has always been in its numbers. Check out the crews live in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg section with free food, shows and partying.

“The Take Over” Make Music New York
North 12th Street Block Party (between Bedford Ave. and Berry St.)
Hosted by The Dugout, The Real Live Show, New Rap Order, WheatBread Radio, CasaNova Studios,
Saturday, June 21st, 12pm – 8pm
This Block party is definitely the place to be this first day of summer. A Street event like no other, this “Take Over” event combines some of NYC’s most buzz worthy and innovative live bands with some of the region’s most notable rising Hip-Hop front runners. With a music tent, Break dance crews, celebrity DJs, and FREE BARBECUE, this block party follows the lead of Dave Chappelle’s landmark event by taking Brooklyn by storm. Come eat, listen, dance, celebrate, and be merry as we Take Over Brooklyn, the Brooklyn way this first day of summer as part of NYC’s citywide Make Music New York festival!
