Ne-Yo at Oceana Hall in Brooklyn (06/13/10)
I must confess, I’m not really familiar with the work of R&B singer Ne-Yo, but apparently he has a new album called Libra Scale coming out soon and he’s playing a one off album pre-release(?) show on June 13 at Oceana Hall in Brooklyn. Now the story here isn’t so much the new Ne-Yo record, but more so the venue choice for his only announced NYC show. So far as I can tell, Oceana Hall is kind of a multi-purpose event venue in Brighton Beach which usually hosts catered events like Bar-Mitzvahs and Weddings. While I noticed that Oceana Hall sometimes also hosts club nights, theatre performances and Russian musicians, more conventional rock shows seem to be a bit of a novelty for “Brooklyn Newest Upscale Trend Spot”. You can buy tickets for the Brooklyn Ne-Yo show over at his MySpace page.
