Green Day is back and ready to rock Brooklyn!

Green Day’s new album, Revolution Radio, is a collection of songs about the chaotic state of America in 2016. It’s not strictly a political concept album like American Idiot – there are also more-personal songs like “Ordinary World,” a sweet ballad that ends the album. But most songs touch on pressing social issues: “Still Breathing” is a scorcher that, according to Armstrong, “goes from the life of a junkie to the life of a gambler to the life of a single mother and a soldier and how we’re all kinda intertwined.”

Floridian punk rockers Against Me! will open what is sure to be an extra energy filled night of cutting edge music.

Famously dubbed “The best party band in years” by NPR, Red Baraat is a pioneering eight-piece band from right here in Brooklyn. Conceived by dhol player Sunny Jain, the group has drawn worldwide praise for its singular sound — a merging of hard driving North Indian Bhangra with elements of go-go, rock and jazz — fueled by 3 master rhythm makers, the muscle of horns, a raucous guitar and a booming sousaphone. Created with no less a purposeful agenda than manifesting joy and unity in all people, Red Baraat’s spirit is worn brightly on its sweaty and hard-worked sleeve. Mixing originals and Bollywood favorites, Red Baraat has performed internationally from the Montreal Jazz Festival to our stage at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. Their first full performance at BRIC House will be to celebrate the release of their new album Bhangra Pirates.

The high energy, horn-driven group Huntertones open the party with their signature sound that melds jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, R&B, and rock.
