Indie music evening jams into the Bronx

August 21, 2012 by  

Tomorrow, August 22, the Wave Hill Public Garden and Cultural Arts Center presents BxIndie Music at Sunset, featuring the music of Bodoma and the Garifuna Cultural Band.

Located at West 249th Street and Independence Avenue in the Bronx, New York, the Wave Hill Public Garden occupies some 28 acres and overlooks both the Hudson River and the Palisades. It focuses on programs meant to explore humanity’s connection to the nature world while preserving and celebrating its natural landscapes. Many of its programs emphasize horticulture, education, and an appreciation for the arts.

The concert features music by Bodoma and the Garifuna Cultural Band, winner of the WNYC Battle of the Bronx competition, who will also be supported by five additional musicians and two dancers. The group is a Bronx Indie music band whose sound is largely percussion-based and inspired by West African music.

The event is sponsored by the Bronx Council on the Arts and is free to attend with admission to the grounds. Guests are also welcome to bring their own folding chairs to make their viewing experiences more comfortable.

There is little doubt that printing companies will be hard at work creating flyers and other promotional materials to draw in attendance for this event. The show promises to be great fun for other residents of New York City but could also make a nice evening escape for people from nearby areas of upstate New York, such as Westchester, Yonkers, Mount Vernon, or Larchmont-Mamaroneck.
