Have a friend or loved one that lives and dies for live music, but you don’t know which show is the perfect gift? We’ve broken down our upcoming shows by genre to simplify bringing the live music experience to your favorite people this holiday season!
The Classic Rock Radio Fan
Zeppelin Bowl DEC 28
Several of the NYC music scene’s most talented players are getting together for an incredible tribute to the music of Led Zeppelin. Don’t let (we’re assuming your father) miss John Medeski, Dean Ween, Scott Ian, and more take on this historic catalog for what we’re sure will be a night to remember.
The Jazz Cat
Kamasi Washington DEC 30 + 31
Nobody goes as deep into space funk and jazz-fusion like sax virtuoso Kamasi Washington. From playing in Snoop Dogg’s backing band to playing all over Kendrik Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, this also serves as a great gift for the too-cool-for-school hip-hop head you know and love.
Animal Collective DJ Set DEC 31
Live in Williamsburg for more than 2 years? It’s probably safe to say that you love Animal Collective. From the old school deep cuts of Here Comes The Indian, Sung Tongs, and Feels to “My Girls” or this year’s “Mountain Game”, anything is possible when Deakin and Avey Tare get together for their late night NYE DJ Set. All we know is, its gonna get weird. Click here for tix.
The Funk Lover
Lettuce JAN 3 + 4
Lover of all things funk? Know someone who’s currently counting down the seconds to the sun rising after the final late, late night set during Jazz Fest week down in NOLA? They’re probably already thinking about getting tickets to both nights of Lettuce’s hometown shows before they sail on Jam Cruise.
That Friend Who’s a “DJ”
RJD2 JAN 10
We all know someone who considers himself or herself a “DJ” whether or not anyone else agrees. Regardless of their skill level, everyone bows down to the musical prowess of RJD2 when he’s behind the decks. The DJ’s DJ; don’t let your friend(s) miss this.
Literally Anyone that’s 4/20 Friendly
The Wailers JAN 11 + 12
You know who they are. What better gift to give then the gift of Bob Marley?! The Wailers, yes THE Wailers, are coming to Brooklyn Bowl for 2 nights to play the legendary music of Bob Marley. Smoking is not allowed at Brooklyn Bowl, but the smooth reggae vibes of Bob are.
The Hip-Hop Aficionado
Slick Rick, The Ruler JAN 20
Know someone that loves old school hip-hop? They definitely have mad respect for Slick Rick, The Ruler. Know someone that loves the new school of hip-hop? They might not know it, but he’s been sampled and interpreted more than 600 times by artists such as Beyoncé, The Beastie Boys, TLC, Nas, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Black Star, The Notorious B.I.G., and Snoop Dog. In the process, Slick Rick has become the most sampled hip-hop artist ever. Did we mention it’s his birthday party?
