Lincoln Center Local presents Afropunk

Tuesday, May 23, 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Described by the New York Times as “the most multicultural festival in the U.S.,” the word AFROPUNK has become synonymous with openminded, non-conforming, and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music. Vintage Trouble is a sensational, soulful four-man band whose live shows fell like sweet Southern revival mixed with a downtown edge. Singer-songwriter Jilian Hervey and instrumentalist and producer Lucas Goodman mirror the rich melting pot of New York cultures. The Skins are an infectious Brooklyn-based band whose ages range from 15-21.

Lincoln Center Local partners with your local library to bring exclusive free screenings of Lincoln Center’s finest performances directly to your neighborhood.
