The Brand New Life
Date and Time
Friday, July 5th, 2013 at 6:00pm
Golden Belt is turning 5 this year! Well, technically Golden Belt is 100+ years old, but it officially opened in its current incarnation as a retail, arts, office, and residential multi-use center on Third Friday of July 2008. To celebrate this milestone and the community that has grown all around us, we’re hosting a series of free live concerts over the course of 5 dates.
The Brand New Life performs Friday July 5th at 6PM (enjoy a staycation holiday weekend and come party with us!) Follow the event on facebook.
About The Brand New Life (from their facebook page): The Brand New Life, “afrobeat/free jazz” octet from North Carolina, is fusing African traditions with jazz and modern techniques as well as any group today. A rare collaboration between a group of young jazz enthusiast from North Carolina, and a Senegalese griot from West Africa, has solidified a special sound and an impressive repertoire of completely original music… The Brand New Life has shared the stage with artists like Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Antibalas, Orgone, Zechs Marquise, Jeff Sipe, Gregg Ginn and Diali Cissokho. The band has performed at major music festivals including Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, Floyd Fest and more.
Concerts start at 6PM and will be held in Golden Belt’s front parking lot, 807 East Main Street, Durham. Free parking is available in the back parking lot (please park only in unmarked spaces). Golden Belt is stop 16 on the Bull City Connector, the fare-free bus that connects Ninth Street, Duke University and downtown, to Golden Belt. NCCU students and faculty can ride Durham Area Transit Authority (DATA) Route 5 buses to downtown, for free, by showing valid university I.D.
