Zongo Junction, Pegasus Warning
Tuesday, October 23

Tuesday night got LOUD and LOCAL with an amazing lineup of dynamic bands and businesses, featuring multi-instrumental extraordinaire Sinkane who celebrated the release of his debut album “Mars” on DFA Records! He has been an unstoppable force as of late taking CMJ crowds by storm. We were so lucky to have him join us for another amazing performance alongside supporting artists Zongo Junction and Pegasus Warning.

Also, major shout out to our local friends over at Little Duck Organics, The bkbooth, and Brooklyn Brewery for showing us what homemade and hearty is all about.

Catch all the highlights (and hilarity) below!

Thursday, October 11th and Friday, October 12th

Blues Traveler sold out for not just one, but TWO (!!) consecutive shows Thursday and Friday nights, serving up catharsis and rock n’roll on one sonically delicious platter. Frontman and harmonica extraordinaire, John Popper, delighted us with the much anticipated classic, “Runaround” while working his harmonica to the musical core with “Lovin is What I Got,” “Mullin It Over,” “Alone,” “But Anyway,” and “Gina” to name a few.

 To swing an average of 250 shows a year is no easy feat, but Blues Traveler clearly hasn’t lost its touch or charm. Check out the videos and photos to see for yourself!
