FREE – At the Bandshell enter Prospect Park West near 9th Ave
Alice Smith performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
Alice Smith makes “soulful music draped with vocal stylings that run the spectrum from playful, to seductive, to eerily haunting.” (Okayplayer) Her voice is a rare and deeply expressive instrument, anchoring her R&B-meets-jazz songwriting with a treasure trove of memorable, personal lyrics. After years of cutting her teeth in New York’s Afro-Punk scene, her 2006 debut, For Lovers, Dreamers & Me leapt out of the gate with a GRAMMY in Best Urban/Alternative category, and Vibe Magazine praised the record for “evoking Fiona Apple’s finest material.”
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
