Weeksville Heritage Center’s Garden Party series comes to a close this Saturday, July 29th with performances from Stew & The Negro Problem and Just A Band. This is certainly is one you won’t want to miss if you’re in Brooklyn!
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.
Just A Band will also be taking the stage at the final Garden Party of 2012. The Kenyan crew is known for their wildly eclectic sound which draws as much from house and disco as it does from soul and hip-hop.
Weeksville Heritage Center is located at 1698 Bergen Street in Brooklyn, NY.
