BAM, 30 LAFAYETTE AVENUE, FORT GREENE

If you’ve never been to a #ThatsMyCole performance, this will be a great place to get graced by Cole Williams and her magical mix of Rock + R & B. Sultry, gamine and very fun are apt descriptions, but still do a disservice to the situation happening at BAM this Friday. It’s free to do it, so do it! Hit the event page here

LITTLEFIELD, 622 DEGRAW, GOWANUS

J DILLA was your favorite producers, favorite producer. He passed  in 2006, but his impact on the creative vibe and soul of Hip-Hop is more alive than ever. This is a tribute party, which happens each year, in multiple cities, around his birthday. This is how Brooklyn celebrates it. Special performances all night, with the Pitchblak Brass Band headlining. 10 Bucks for a night of awesome!

 

SATURDAY

It’s a bunch of things on Saturday. You have a fielders choice!

BROOKLYN MUSEUM, 200 EASTERN PARKWAY

Bunch of stuff at this monthly Saturday institution, within this impressive institution on Eastern Parkway. It’s a world class museum, so besides the short documentaries, Jazz band and closing performance by Bilal, amongst a bunch of other activities, be sure to walk the exhibitions. Cheap date as well, FYI
