From the moment people walked into the Brooklyn Arts Center on Friday for the opening night of the Carolina Pine Music Festival, their feet never stopped moving. All through the night on Friday, May 27, the crowd was up and dancing to the various styles of music from the talented artists who took the BAC stage by storm.
Legendary guitar God Buckethead returned to the BAC on Tuesday, May 17, for a power-packed show of shredding no one in the crowd will ever forget. Having just recently returned to touring after a four-year break, many fans were excited to have the opportunity to see the world-renowned and eminently popular experimental guitarist live once again.
On Friday, March 18, Shovels & Rope took the Brooklyn Arts Center’s stage and blew the sold-out crowd away with their performance. Husband and wife musical duo Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hurst describe their style as primarily folk with elements of rock and roll, country, blues, and gospel, all of which were present in the wide variety of music played throughout the night.
On Wednesday, February 17, the Brooklyn Arts Center was alive with high-energy music and dancing as Anders Osborne rolled into town and rocked the place out. From the moment opener Amy Helm and the Handsome Strangers played their first song until Osborne played his last, the crowd never stopped moving.

On Sunday, November 15, the Wood Brothers rocked the Brooklyn Arts Center, along with supporting act The Rigs. The Wood Brothers—brothers Oliver and Chris Wood, and Jano Rix— were touring to promote their fifth studio album, Paradise, which was released in October. Offering up their distinct brand of Americana-blues-style folk-rock, the band put on an unforgettable show for fans at the historic church.
The New Mastersounds filled the BAC with funk and rock on Tuesday, November 3, bringing their non-stop dance party all the way to Wilmington from Leeds, UK. The crowd was not disappointed. Everyone in the house danced all night, from the minute the opener, Earphunk, took the stage, through the blistering New Mastersounds encore.
The Carolina Chocolate Drops graced the Brooklyn Arts Center stage on Wednesday, February 26, and the floor of the BAC was packed with music lovers who danced, clapped, and sang along. Blair Walton and Chris Lee of Pipeline Event Management promoted the spectacular sold-out show and were thrilled with the concert. “We thought this was a great space for CCD. The character of the old church fits the style of the band to a T,” said Walton.
