Since the release of her debut full-length Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, Courtney Barnett has been celebrated as one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in indie rock, a singer-writer who mixes deeply insightful observations with devastating self-assessment. Rolling Stone praised her as “one of the sharpest, most original songwriters around—at any level, in any genre… a self-strafing humorist á la Lena Dunham who’s also a Dylan-style word ninja." She's a critical darling with an adoring fanbase to match. 

Julien Baker’s solo debut, Sprained Ankle, was one of the most widely acclaimed works of 2015. The album, recorded by an 18-year-old and her friend in only a few days, was a bleak yet hopeful, intimate document of staggering experiences and grace, centered entirely around Baker’s voice, guitar, and unblinking honesty. Sprained Ankle appeared on year-end lists everywhere from NPR Music to The AV Club to New York Magazine’s Vulture. With Turn Out The Lights, the now 21-year-old Baker returns to a much bigger stage, but with the same core of breathtaking vulnerability and resilience.

Cameroon-born Laetitia Tamko, better known as Vagabon, is a multi-instrumentalist and producer who moved to New York City with her famliy in her teens. A tough transition for any teenager, her lo-fi synthy music tells the story of a searching soul who is blazing a new trail in the indie landscape. "Tamko’s voice is enormous but delicate, and she belts it with gusto throughout Infinite Worlds, spinning out little effortless arias amid songs Modest Mouse may have written in another life," states Pitchfork.


Please note: Advanced tickets for this show are only available via Ticketfly (online or by phone at 877-987-6487). The Box Office will be open at the Prospect Park Bandshell the day of the show.
