A look back at Crossing Brooklyn Ferry

We hope everyone enjoyed the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry music festival held earlier this month at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Maybe we enjoyed it a bit too much? Hence the delay in this event wrap-up.

As you probably know already, Bryce and Aaron Dessner curated the event, which featured St. Vincent, The Walkmen, Beirut, Atlas Sound, The Antlers, and many more of Brooklyn's best and brightest and up and comers. (We almost called them "acts" but then thought better of it. Whew, close call.) Brassland's roster was well-represented performances by Jherek Bischoff, People Get Ready, and Buke and Gase. In addition, Bryce sat in with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and Aaron guested with Sharon van Etten. If you weren't able to make it or you'd just want to bathe in nostalgia (two weeks ago counts as nostalgia on the internet) here are some photos of the Brassland peeps who appeared throughout the weekend, courtesy of Brooklyn Vegan:
