THU. 08/06 | 7:00PM @ EAST RIVER PARK

Third World / Awa Sangho
FRI. 08/07 | 7:30PM @ PROSPECT PARK BANDSHELL
THIRD WORLD, a group of friends who found their own place in the rich ecosystem of 1973 Kingston, Jamaica. They caught Marley’s eye, were asked to tour in support of the Wailers, and the rest is history.

The experimental hip-hop duo SHABBAZZ PALACES is the first hip-hop group to grace the SubPop record label. After emerging a few years ago in a Seattleite cloud of mystery, they have come to stand for a woozy, patchwork, and altogether intoxicating approach to beat-making.
