NYC: Just A Band and Stew & The Negro Problem Live at Weeksville Heritage Center [7/28]


Weeksville Heritage Center's Garden Party series comes to a close this Saturday, July 29th with performances from Kenya's Just A Band and Stew & The Negro Problem.  This is certainly is one you won't want to miss if you're in Brooklyn!

Just A Band will be bringing their wildly eclectic sound, which draws as much from house and disco as it does from soul and hip-hop. If you're not familiar (you should be!) check out some of their tunes and their excellent Earbuds mixtape.

Stew & The Negro Problem garnered a lot of attention for their semi-autobiographical, Tony-nominated musical Passing Strange (which was also filmed by Spike Lee for a DVD release - Holla at Netflix!).  Stew, born Mark Stewart, and his musical partner in crime, Heidi Rodewald, will release their new album, Making It, later this year.

Weeksville Heritage Center is located at 1698 Bergen Street in Brooklyn, NY.

*AFTERPARTY! Join us after Weeksville for an afterparty at NuBlu with a DJ set by Just A Band! [NuBlu 62 Avenue C (bet. 4th and 5th streets) 9PM - 11PM]
