Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival returns with starrier line-up
Last year, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival attracted a motley but devoted retinue to The Yard, near Carroll Gardens. While there are plenty of free concerts this summer, this year's iteration of the festival -- announced last week for August 8th -- may be worthy of those additional $25 laying around in your penny jar. Confirmed thus far for the fledgling festival, moved indoors this year to the Old American Can Factory (232 3rd Street), are instrumental hip-hop pioneer RJD2 and the live incarnation of the Juan MacLean, whose last album (The Future Will Come) earned favorable notices in Music Junkie earlier this spring. While I would reserve from buying tickets until more headliners are announced, this is shaping up to be an interesting event!
