BoCoCa is Around the Corner

We wrote about the BoCoCa Arts Festival back in March but thought it was time to do a follow-up as June is around the corner. A lot of exciting things are happening in their second year! BoCoCa has partnered with the Brooklyn ArtWalk, another annual event that happens June 5th and 6th. If you stop by Atlantic Avenue, you'll most likely see performers from BoCoCa and get some information about the festival.

They've also confirmed a lot of outstanding performers this year. There will be a theater production called "Stephen King's High School: The Musical," which satirizes the popular "High School Musical" franchise. There will be visual artists with installations all around the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill. There will be "Podcast Plays" from the Conflict of Interest Theater Company.

And there will be music from a few of the groups we've talked about on this blog, (Illard Scott, Ganessa James, BR and Timebomb), as well as some other exciting bands and soloists: Rawson, a soul/rock quartet from upstate NY with a not-to-be-believed live show; Colorform, an acoustic trio (vocals, guitar, cello) that performs with a live visual artist; Gallons to Ounces, a blues/funk trio from the D.C. area that has some great live clips on Myspace and many more! What's even better if you're not getting regular stock dividends is that some of these shows are free. Check out the BoCoCa website soon for a full schedule.
