The Brooklyn Academy of Music has been celebrating their 150th anniversary this year, and one of the ways they’re self-promoting is with their new, pseudo-violent slogan, “BAM & Then It Hits You.”
From Thursday, May 3, to Saturday, May 5, BAM wants to give you a few good, hearty slaps with their Crossing Brooklyn Ferry music and film festival. BAM has culled some great acts, including the Walkmen, Sharon Van Etten, the Antlers, and Atlas Sound, to perform for the festival. There will also be numerous screenings of short, commissioned films with original scores (and, according to Flavorpill, some even have live music).
Crossing Brooklyn Ferry is curated by Bryce and Aaron Dessner, of the band the National. According to Flavorpill, the name of the festival comes from Walt Whitman’s similarly titled poem, which celebrates “Brooklyn’s diverse artistic population.” How appropriate!
For the full lineup, times of events, and to purchase tickets, visit CrossingBrooklynFerry.com. Sadly, the three-day passes are sold out, along with tickets for May 5, which included performances by Beirut and Atlas Sound (go ahead and shed a few tears). All concerts will be held in either BAMcafe or the Howard Gilman Opera House. Single-day tickets are $45.
