Red Bull Music Academy: Master Mix: Red Hot + Russell
Celebrate the short life and long résumé of the legendary Arthur Russell over two nights as the Red Hot Organization hosts a “wild combination” of musicians (many of whom appeared on the tribute album of the same name) including members of Arcade Fire, Scissor Sisters, Cults and Blood Orange breathing new life into his compositions at Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Red Bull Music Academy: Sleeping Bag Records: Go Bang!
Acting as an after-party of sorts to the BAM show earlier in the evening, the Red Bull Music Academy festival closes itself out by memorializing Sleeping Bag Records, the groundbreaking, genre-free imprint started by Arthur Russell, (with Will Socolov and Juggy Gales), and its sister label, Fresh Records. Tighten up your loose joints for DJ sets from hip-hop OG Kurtis Mantronik and disco superstars of today (Metro Area's Morgan Geist) and yesteryear (The Gallery's Nicky Siano).
Previously known as Mister Saturday, DJs Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin have taken hometown success at Shea Stadium. Now, with international success, they're ready to smash outdoors in Brooklyn all summer long. You can expect lots of dancing, tasty tacos from Country Boys Taqueria, local brews and brand-new mixes from their EP, Margareten. Plus, kids and pups are welcome!
