Barbès 10th Anniversary Live Broadcast w/ 5 Bands

Hear this show now: Pop-up listen Pop-up player! | Add or read comments

Barbès, the intimate music-lover's haven celebrates at 376 9th St (corner of 6th Ave) in Park Slope Brooklyn, celebrates its tenth anniversary with a series of jam-packed concerts from May 1 to 6. We join the celebrations with a multi-band remote broadcast live from Barbès tonight from 6 to 9 pm. Featuring an all-star lineup of Barbès venue and label stalwarts including the Amazonian cumbia kings Chicha Libre, silken-voiced song-spinners Las Rubias del Norte, Northeast Brazil big drum beat bashers Maracatu NY and Brassens Anglo-interpreters Pierre De Gaillande's Bad Reputation. Plus multi-instrumentalist Quince Marcum (of Barbès vets Stagger Back Brass Band, Hungry March Band and others) performs Greek rembetika.

As usual the tireless Irene Trudel will be both technical guru and co-host with Rob. Admission is free during the broadcast (although performers may pass the hat for voluntary donations) and if all that is not enough, we'll also be doling out free FMU swag.

Following tonight's b'cast One Ring Zero plays here at Barbes (ASAP after 9 pm) followed by Banda de los Muertos. One correction - contrary to what I said on the air, tomorrow night's final anniversary show at Barbes kicks off w/ Sanda Weigl and Shoko Nagai at 7 pm - the rest of the schedule though is as I announced it earlier this evening.
  8:51pm Marmalade kitty:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Rob W:

Yes indeed!
  8:58pm Marmalade kitty:
