Part of BAMcafé Live

The beloved BAMcafé Live is back! On select Fridays and Saturdays, BAMcafé Live features a diverse mix of free live music and performance from Brooklyn and beyond. Featuring rock, jazz, R&B, world music, and more, these free performances feature new artists announced each month. Started in 1999, BAMcafé Live has served as a career launchpad for many new artists and an intimate performance home for established artists.

Please note: BAMcafé will open an hour before the event.
