2014 Battle of the Boroughs: Brooklyn

Friday June 6 2014 • 7:00pm - 7:00pm
Victor V. Gurbo & Co.

Overview

It’s the Battle of the Boroughs, and it’s back for a fifth season. We’re on a quest to find 2014’s best undiscovered performer from across all genres in New York City — soulful hip-hop acts, instrumental ensembles, pop-rock bands and more.

Come out for a party, hear great music and inspiring stories, then vote for the act you want to represent the borough in the Ultimate Battle. Emceed by WQXR’s Terrance McKnight and featuring guest judges John Schaefer, host of WNYC’s Soundcheck; Hardcore-Soul Queen Tamar-kali; and producer Bob Power.

Watch the sold-out show live and vote right here Friday, June 6 at 7:30pm.
