Official Brooklyn Jeff Buckley Tribute Concert
November 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
This Official Brooklyn Jeff Buckley Tribute Concert will take place on Friday, November 17th, what would be Jeff Buckley’s 51st birthday, during the 20th anniversary year of his afterlife since his untimely passing in 1997.
In a concert blessed with a seal of approval from Jeff Buckley Music (managed by the artist’s family/estate), we will remember, celebrate, and relive the artist’s work with an intimate evening filled with tribute performances by Abby Ahmad, Raka Banerjee, Brooklyn Raga Massive, Chris Carrigain of Deep Sea, Church of Betty Trio, Brian Collazo of BSKi, FloodWaves, Mike Horn of FloodWaves, Sophie Lam, Mark Lesseraux, On The Sun, Liliana Rose, Curtis J. Social, Margaret Tran, and Lily Virginia!
Thrilled to have secured Shapeshifter Lab of Brooklyn for this event – a crisp, softly lit, open-plan, ADA-compliant venue with 3,600 square feet of space in which to browse house art, enjoy refreshments, and peruse performers’ wares while enjoying the music.
The address is 18 Whitwell Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11215, between 1st and Carroll Streets in Gowanus. If not arriving by car or bicycle, one can get there by taking the R train to Union St. station or the F/G trains to Carroll St, Smith & 9th St., or 4th Av.-9th St. stops.
7:30 p.m. doors, 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. show, with a short intermission.
Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at a bar staffed by the venue.
Proceeds from this event will go to these amateur/independent/fabulous artists, as well as to the Deanna Maran Foundation for Non-Violence, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by my friend in college and her siblings after their youngest sister Deanna “Lala” Maran was killed in an act of preventable party violence at a high school party in West Los Angeles on November 17th, 2001. Lala will be in her 16th year in the afterlife on this night.
It will be a beautiful, tender affair. See you music lovers soon – bring everyone you know and care about.
