Downtown comes Uptown Featuring:
Akie Bermiss & Lynette Williams
Lake Street Dive
Hosted by Rita Houston from WFUV
Over the course of two nights, Rockwood Music Hall, Lincoln Center, and WFUV partner to showcase four talented artists in two distinctly different settings; Manhattan's eclectic Lower East Side and the perhaps more traditional Upper West Side. These unique artists bring songs and stories of their everyday stomping grounds, the downtown club scene, to a new audience at Lincoln Center's David Rubenstein Atrium. Each artist will showcase a selection of their work and the audience will learn what the artists have known since time immemorial - the essence of great performance defies and exceeds its location or origin. The following night, all four artists return to their roots with full performances at Rockwood Music Hall. Join us, as Downtown comes Uptown.
