Celebrate Brooklyn!’s 36th season goes out like a lion as ST. VINCENT makes her long-awaited Bandshell debut.

St. Vincent is of course the nom de guerre of Annie Clark, one of her generation’s most fearsome and inventive guitarists, an artist who seemed to arrive in the limelight fully formed when her remarkable debut album Marry Me came out in 2007. She followed that effort with the equally astonishing Actor (2009) and then the mind blowing Strange Mercy (2011). Then came a segue with Love This Giant, her critically acclaimed collaboration with David Byrne. Nothing quite prepared her fans for St. Vincent, though, released earlier this year, a “bold and almost jarringly confident fourth record” which “does not sound like it was recorded here on Earth.” (Pitchfork) Lyrically sophisticated, heavy on the distorted, aggressive electric guitars, and with bold vocals and synthesizer arrangements on top of a relentless rhythm section, the record is her most gripping to date. Come early for this one.

The orchestral folk-pop of the young Brooklyn composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone’s project SAN FERMIN has turned a lot of heads since releasing its self-titled debut in the fall of 2013. The ambitious record ultimately included a string quartet, a brass quartet, and operatic sopranos.
