Theophilius London, “who seems to have studied his Prince, his Andre 3000, and, especially and perhaps most surprisingly, his PM Dawn,” (Philadelphia Inquirer) comes off “like a boastful, macho Janelle Monáe [who] attempts to bridge the 1950s and the 2050s.” (Details) With the French-Cameroonian sisters Les Nubians, whose “unique Afropean soul lifts the spirit and moves the feet,” (USA Today) and the reduction stutter funk of Brooklyn’s Aabaraki.

Know Before You Go

Baseball FieldsProspect Park

The Long Meadow Ballfields will be closed at Prospect Park for construction. The reconstruction of the Long Meadow Ballfields is a multi-phase project encompassing 34 acres of fields, paths and woodlands. The project incorporates contemporary storm water management techniques that support our goal of capturing and retaining storm water runoff. These improvements will also help to filter runoff before it enters our watercourse. Designed to revitalize the park’s sporting community, the first phase will restore Field One, pedestrian and bridle paths, drinking fountains, benches, and include new tree plantings.
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
