The English Beat + Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata

Brit-ska’s greatest pogo band comes to town, with lead warbler Dave Wakeling and a backing group that plays to his strengths. And you know “Mirror in the Bathroom,” “I Confess” and Smokey Robinson’s “Tears of a Clown” are on the set list. Kicking off the show, BRO is an instrumental offshoot of the East Village Opera Company, specializing in startlingly unusual arrangements of familiar tunes (selections from The Sound of Music, for starters).
