BAMcafé Live: Jaime Woods


Soulful vocals meet stripped down folk arrangements in the gorgeously mellow sounds of Jaime Woods. With a honeyed voice honed while singing in Chicago gospel groups and at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Woods—along with her guitarist brother Daniel—performs an eclectic mix of originals and covers by artists ranging from The Impressions to Little Dragon. Having shared the stage with Bilal, Casey Benjamin, and Emily King, Woods brings her enchanting brand of indie soul to BAMcafé in advance of her soon-to-drop debut album.

Nakeya Brown: In Private Moments - Exhibition & Artist Talk. Hosted By AfroPunk

earthseedblogsoftheliving:<3 Come through. Be loved.

TOP RANK Magazine and FiveMyles is pleased to present In Private Moments, an exhibition featuring the photography of Nakeya Brown. Brown's whimsically colored, minimally composed still-lives examine the visualization of black womanhood by engaging with the fraught cultural politics of hair. With a conceptual focus on the objects and rituals of hair maintenance, Brown's portraits present the duality of emotions associated with black hair aesthetics - happiness and pain; beauty and sacrifice; collectivity and alienation - to render visible the deeply intimate process of self-representation. Brown's photography is featured in the inaugural issue of TOP RANK Magazine.

Fri, Apr 10, 6:00pm and Sun, Apr 12, 6:00pm; Opening Reception: Friday April 10, 6:00pm-9:00pm; Artist Talk: Sunday, April 12, 2015, 4PM

"I Love Vinyl" House Party @ BRIC in Brooklyn | Special Hours: 8pm-12am
Clean out the closets and get ready for warmer weather as we celebrate spring with family-friendly live music, film screenings, dance classes and more. Followed by an evening dance party by I Love Vinyl, their approach is mind-wide, foot-friendly and snap, crackly, poppin'; meaning that genre, time period and recognizability take a back seat to quality, taste and skill. Disco, house, soul, boogie, jazz/funk, hip hop, techno, no wave, new jack swing, Latin, electro and Afrobeat are woven into a cohesive, funky and irresistibly danceable sonic manifesto. Laptop-free since 2009.

$10 Adv/$14 Door | BALLROOM

BAMcafé Live: Bowmont
"With a lucidly live indie sound shrouded in misty electronic undertones, the Brooklyn-based musicians known as Bowmont are at the forefront of an underground convergence of dance music and psychedelic rock."
—Ladygunn Magazine

Richly textured electronica meets dream-pop in the lustrous, cinematic soundscapes of Brooklyn's Bowmont. The project of Danish singer and multi-instrumentalist Emil Bovbjerg, Grammy Award-winning Belgian engineer Jeremy Loucas, and German guitarist Elias Meister, Bowmont's ethereal anthems wrap danceable beats in a gorgeously gauzy sonic haze.
