Jansport Bonfire Sessions Comes To Brooklyn Bringing Together Bands And A Bonfire Under The Big Sky

JanSport, in partnership with Noisey, have announced the fifth and final event of 2013 for The JanSport Bonfire Sessions, a free outdoor concert series that brings music fans, local bands and a bonfire under the big sky.  Don’t miss out on this big send-off to summer, as JanSport rides into Brooklyn’s Havemeyer Park on the night of Saturday, September 21.

Helping celebrate the changing of the seasons are a local trio of red-hot acts which includes DIIV, Guards, and Fletcher C Johnson, all of whom will provide just the right notes of rock and roll to greet the fall or help those who want to hang onto the last pieces of summer, do so.

  • DIIV are New York City, born and bred. The shoegaze quartet has been buzzing on the local circuit for a while, especially after the release of its well-received 2012 record, Oshin. They represent some of the best music that comes from Brooklyn label wizards Captured Tracks, and playing their home borough should fit them like a glove.
  • Guards are dreamy, shimmering, and all-around intoxicating. The New York outfit will bring their sinewy melodies and ethereal vocalizations home to Kings County, looking to transfix the park’s audience with guitars that swell emotively and forceful percussions. An open sky is the perfect recipient for their tunes, which will inspire both dancing and bleary-eyed smiles in equal measure.
  • Fletcher C. Johnson creates perfect music to end your summer on a high note. California-influenced with that gritty NYC touch, Johnson will throw distortion in your face one second before crooning you with his unique voice the next. You’re guaranteed to sway your hips to his beach-blasted pop rock while basking in the last moments of the warmest season.

In addition to the music line-up, food and complimentary beverages, attendees may receive new JanSport backpacks and limited edition silk-screened New York Bonfire Sessions concert posters. The event is 21+ to attend and admission to The JanSport Bonfire Sessions is free, but space is limited.
