José James Last Blackmagic Performance – December 3

Tomorrow, December 3rd, Giant Step Presents José James; plus TK Wonder & Ben Perowsky’s Moodswing Orchestra, and DJ GE-OLOGY in a very rare Brooklyn appearance at Littlefield. According to José James this is going to be the very last performance of the Blackmagic concert series. That’s right folks, the very last one! So make sure you grab your tickets in advance to avoid long lines at the door.

“This project is very close to my heart. It’s a tribute to not only the greats like Marvin Gaye and Leon Ware, but to our contemporary giants like Flying Lotus and Benga. I’ve toured Blackmagic in 30 countries this year and worked with an amazing group of artists and producers on the album – Gilles Peterson, Flying Lotus, Moodymann, Taylor McFerrin, DJ Mitsu the Beats, Richard Spaven, and many more. From Paris to Sao Paolo, people have showed us mad love! How fitting that the final show is in New York, the place where I got my first Lotus beat labeled “Blackmagic” and opened the door to making the record. This is going to be a night to remember.” – José James

On the 1s and 2s for the evening will be Amir, Ge-Ology, The Twilite Tone, Scribe, OP!, and Jon Oliver. Arrive early and ready to dance; entry is free before 10:30pm.
