This week, Central Library isn’t just a library; it’s the scene of a punk-meets-garage concert, a time portal to classic rock and jazz tunes, a hall for traditional Mexican dance and a stage for Zouk Soul and R&B music. On Thursday, June 4, we’re celebrating the kickoff of Summer Reading ’09 with several free live performances and activities.
At noon, Lost in the Stacks (Brooklyn Public Library’s very own musical ensemble) will be performing your favorite oldies, along with some original tunes.
At 2 PM, catch a performance by Calpulli Mexican Dance Company. This group is dedicated to showcasing Mexico’s rich cultural heritage and history through dance.
At 3:30 PM, Care Bears on Fire (pictured above) rocks out. These young girls started in a Brooklyn basement and are now a favorite on the New York City club scene with their authentic punk spirit.
Then, on Saturday, June 6, come back to Central at 2 PM for an exciting performance by Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and producer Katia Cadet. This Haitian-born performer, who has also written songs for Wyclef Jean, will deliver Zouk Soul and R&B in French, English and Creole.
