BUD LIGHT SELTZER MUSIC SERIES
Doors 6:30pm/Show 7:30pm
Join us on Sat, July 16 for a 2022 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! concert featuring Los Angeles psych-soul four-piece Chicano Batman with an opening performance by Charlotte Dos Santos.
On their latest record Invisible People, Chicano Batman’s shapeshifting, ever-evolving sound ricochets between psychedelic soul, hip-hop beats, krautrock, and Nigerian synth funk – a potent amalgam that channels the joyfully diverse energy of their native LA. The Brazilian-Norwegian singer Charlotte Dos Santos takes an equally prismatic approach, incorporating jazz, neo soul, South American traditions, and samples into her unique sound.
*Please Note: Chairs will not be available at this show but you are permitted to bring your own.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Los Angeles psych-soul four-piece Chicano Batman source their high-spirited alternative synthesis from tropicália, West Coast psychedelia, and late-’60s/early-’70s soul. Made up of Eduardo Arenas (bass, guitar, vocals), Carlos Arévalo (guitars), Bardo Martinez (lead vocals, keyboards, guitar), and Gabriel Villa (drums), Chicano Batman has been well-respected locally for the best part of a decade. The group has opened for Jack White, Alabama Shakes, Vampire Weekend, and Portugal. The Man in recent tours and has played major festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo. After signing with ATO Records, the group released Freedom is Free in 2017, teaming up with Leon Michels to craft an ambitious sonic experience that enhances the soul and R&B elements of their sound.
Charlotte Dos Santos is a fiercely independent producer, singer, composer, and arranger who makes music free of any confines. Seamlessly confronting existential questions while exploring themes of identity, womanhood, and human connection, her warm, emotive, and jazz-inflected songwriting traverses through genres with ease - imbued with ethereal vocals at one moment and a driving drum pulse the next. She grew up naturally dissolving boundaries, raised in a small town outside Oslo by her Norwegian mother and Brazilian father, her parents’ tastes exposed her to everything from jazz, hip-hop, and Latin rhythms to flamenco, North African instrumentation, and intricate Arabic melodies. Since debuting with hugely critically acclaimed 2017 EP Cleo, she’s garnered more than 20 million streams, earned recognition from the likes of The Fader, Pitchfork, Bandcamp, and Pigeons & Planes, recorded a coveted COLORS session, been a Newcomer of the Year Norwegian Grammy Award nominee, and picked up co-signs from Raphael Saadiq, Outkast’s Big Boi, and others.
