// WIN FREE TIX TO THE FUNKY METERS //

Tuesday, September 13 (w/ Livingston Leo)

Wednesday, September 14 (w/ Turkuaz)

Thursday, September 15 (followed by DJ ?uestlove)

The funky METERS. You know ‘em as Art Neville & George Porter Jr. (from the original Meters) + New Orleans native Brian Stoltz on guitar, and Russe1l Batiste Jr. on drums. Their trademark sound blends funk, blues, and dance grooves with a New Orleans vibe.

Now, if you know Brooklyn Bowl, you know there’s nowhere better to get your N’AWLINS on. We got Blue Ribbon fried chicken, fried catfish, muffalettas, po’ boys, and a very deadly Bourbon St. Shake with NUTELLA. Know how good that all tastes with a side of NOLA funk and bowling? Real, real good.

We’ve got 2 free tix to give away to see the funky METERS on the night of your choice. See below for how to enter on Twitter or Facebook.

WIN TIX TO MIKE POSNER!

March 16th, 2011

// WIN 2 FREE TIX TO MIKE POSNER //

Thursday, March 31

Mike Posner, the chart-topping 23-year old Duke grad, is comin’, and he’s cooler than you. (We’re JK’ing… no WAY is he cooler than you!) (But he’s pretty cool.)

Not only is he cool, but he’s got an arsenal of pop and hip hop hits that make you wanna be all like “Bow Chicka Wow Wow!” Ya know? And if that’s not motivation enough, you should probably know that ?uestlove will be on DJ duty immediately after the show, so really that’s 2 for the price of, well, none.

We’re giving away 2 FREE TICKETS to see Mr. Posner when he comes to Brooklyn Bowl on March 31, so get to it! See below for details.

FUNKY METERS MEDIA RECAP

February 22nd, 2011

// funky METERS //

February 15-17, 2011

Last week, February 15-17, a little band called the funky METERS came to town. They played and they played and they played, and they blew the house down. The three-night stay included two opening sets by Gary Clark Jr, and a sit-in by ?uestlove on the drums. I mean, does it get any funkier? The answer is no.

Were you there? Post your pictures of the night to our FLICKR group and your videos to our Vimeo group. Show the world what it’s like to get down at Brooklyn Bowl with the funky METERS, Gary Clark Jr., and ?uestlove. If you missed it this time around, check out the links below for recaps, photos and videos.

// BOWLIVE II LIMITED EDITION POSTER //

By Artist

DAVID WELKER

$30.00

Brooklyn Bowl is psyched to announce that at Bowlive II, we will be selling limited edition posters by none other than David Welker, the artist behind Phish’s Rift album art and the beautiful custom screen prints from our Blues Traveler show earlier this year. Only 50 posters were made in total, so not only is this poster awesome, but it’s about to be sold out. They’re only available AT Brooklyn Bowl during Bowlive… so get a move on!!

NYE WITH THE ROOTS: MEDIA RECAP

January 3rd, 2011

// THE ROOTS AT BROOKLYN BOWL //

NEW YEAR’S EVE 2010

On New Year’s Eve, things got real. We had the legendary Roots crew in the house for a very special NYE celebration, which included not one… not two… but THREE. FULL. SETS. Then, because you know he can’t stop/won’t stop, our main man Questlove hopped into the DJ booth for a special late night edition of his weekly party at Brooklyn Bowl, Bowl Train. In their three sets, The Roots played hit after hit after hit, proving that they really are the hardest working band in the biz (not that there were any doubters). And when the clocks broadcasted on all the screens reached midnight, champagne bottles were popped, shots of Patron were passed around, Questlove tweeted, and lots and lots of love was shared all around. There was simply no other place to be.

Were you there? Post your pictures of the night to our FLICKR group and your videos to our Vimeo group. Show the worldwhat it’s like to get down at Brooklyn Bowl with the one and only Roots crew. If you missed it this time around, check out the links below for recaps, photos and videos.
