5j Barrow Live

2014 Winners of the Ultimate Battle of the Boroughs

Friday, January 23, 2015

7:30 PM

Join indie-folk band 5j Barrow for an intimate concert live in The Greene Space, hosted by WQXR's Terrance McKnight. Brooklyn-based Americana artist Michelle Amador will open for the 2014 Battle champs.

The Manhattan-based band advanced through several rounds of competition before taking the final crown in our 2014 Ultimate Battle of the Boroughs last June. They won over the judges and voters in our citywide talent quest with their eclectic sound and theatrical stage presence.

Watch live at 7:30pm:

"You have your people in the audience [tonight]," said Battle judge Helga Davis of Q2 Music at the final competition, "but you also have a bunch of people who aren't your people, who are now your people. Congratulations."

Come out for a night of music, drinks - and a celebration of New York City's emerging music scene!
