“Brown […] always has shown a knack for penning insinuating melodic hooks. Not surprisingly, then, the tunes from ‘The Cycle of Love’ linger in memory.”

Lose Your Mind with MoBetta, Barsh and Blaxx!

These world-class, globe-trotting stars are rarely in the same place at the same time, but on May 21st, they’ll come together to put on an exciting live show for you!

Lose Your Mind! is a collaboration between two good friends – MoBetta and Barsh. Ever since their days back in Chicago playing in jazz clubs, these two love to make beautiful music together. For this performance, they’ve invited killin’ drummer Joe Blaxx, of the Laura Izibor band and Maurice Brown Effect, to join them. Don’t miss this opportunity to lose your mind — let it all go — and just be in the moment with great live music!

Rustik Tavern is near Pratt Institute in historic Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Their menu and bar options are top-notch and reasonable and the vibe is cool, loungy and, well, rustik! Take the A to Hoyt, then the G to Classon Ave.
