Friends of BAM receive priority access (through November 8) to the upcoming Dan Zanes & Friends family concerts at the Howard Gilman Opera House on Feb 6, 2010 (Buy Tickets). I also just noticed that Dan is playing a posh gig on November 8, 2009 at the Tribeca Cinemas in NYC (54 Varick St). The Sunday show, a benefit for the Mario Batali Foundation, also includes a screening of Wes Anderson‘s new film Fantastic Mr. Fox (Buy Tickets). Last but not least, Dan’s excellent new DVD entitled The Fine Friends Are Here (my review) is in stores now.

Brooklyn’s very own Grammy Award-winners Dan Zanes and Friends bring their wild dance party concerts filled with surprising and eclectic special guests to BAM for a unique program.
