Bang on a Can presents two events on October 5 at the Downtown Brooklyn Arts Festival (DBAF) in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Throughout the weekend, arts organizations across Brooklyn participate in exciting performances, talks, and tours. Saturday offers several hands-on activities: In an instrument-building workshop led by guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Mark Stewart (Bang on a Can All-Stars & Paul Simon) participants create instruments and sound-makers from ordinary materials that lead into an interactive performance. Then, the Asphalt Orchestra, Bang on a Can's radical street band, performs their singular takes on music by the Pixies, Thomas Mapfumo, Charles Mingus, Frank Zappa, and more.
