Neighborhood Know-It-All: Live from Brooklyn!

There’s nothing better than an outdoor concert on a warm summer day. Unfortunately, we’re still months from one of those. That doesn’t mean the music is silenced until then. This is Brooklyn after all, once home to Jay-Z, Barbara Streisand and Lena Horne. There are plenty of indoor venues where you can catch live music. Check out the places our staff voted for as the best:


Brooklyn Academy of Music (known to most as BAM): “Not only all types of music, but live performances, plays and different types of dance shows, all for a reasonable price.”


Dweck Center (at Central Library): “A convenient place to hear great music.”


Southpaw: “It’s grungy, but they book great acts.”
