The 'Big Clock' Brings 'the General' to Lock Down Brooklyn on Labor Day
After delivery a powerful musical punch at this year's Brooklyn Music Festival in June, the '5 Star General' Bounty Killer returns to Brooklyn for round two this Labor Day. In celebration of the West Indian-American Carnival weekend, the General and his Alliance lieutenants will storm Brooklyn's Caribbean City nightclub on Monday, September 7th. After dominating Sumfest and Champions in Action, two of Jamaica's biggest summer stagings, the Warlord's return to Brooklyn is highly anticipated.
Billed as the 'After Parkway Jam,' the event--taking place immediately after the day-long carnival parade on Eastern Parkway--is a fitting close to the West Indian-American Day Carnival celebrations and the City's summer concert season.
"What better way to end the summer than to have 'the General' shut down Brooklyn," promoter and popular New York sound system selector Steelie Bashment (known as Brooklyn's 'Big Clock') questions. "Brooklyn was the first place to really embrace Killer. Back in early '90s, his first hit single 'Copper Shot' took off on the streets of BK first. Brooklyn people have continuously shown Bounty Killer mad love over the past 17 years. He's been a roll this summer, and it is only fitting that he comes back to Brooklyn to lock it down."
The event is produced by Steelie Bashment, in association with ATM and NSB Promotions.
Bounty Killer and the Alliance at Caribbean City caps off Steelie Bashment's week-long Brooklyn-centric Carnival celebration that began this week with Alliance member Serani bringing down the house at the borough's signature Waah Gwan Wednesday party in Club Temptations. The festivities continue with Thursday's Soca-driven Assume the Position event in Soca Village, and Saturday's enormous New York Carnival Flag Party at the Tropical Reflections venue.
