YOUNG GURU Presents: Barclays Opening Night Party w/ Talib Kweli and DJ Square Biz @ FreeCandy
Tickets Available at Ticketleap

On Friday September 28th, Young Guru (Jay Z’s DJ) invites you to join him and Brooklyn hip-hop mainstay, Talib Kweli, for an exclusive party following the opening night of the Jay Z concert series at the Barclays Center.

Featuring special guest DJ sets by Talib Kweli, Young Guru and DJ Square Biz (Roc Nation, Biscuits & Gravy), the Opening Night Party will celebrate all that we love about Brooklyn, as we welcome the borough’s first sports arena since Ebbets Field, and celebrate the inaugural hometown concert of one of Brooklyn’s favorite sons, Jay Z. Located just blocks from the Barclays Center, the Opening Night Party at Free Candy promises special guests and surprises, a remarkable event that will go down in the history of Brooklyn nightlife.

Free Candy is a DIY arts space in an old converted car wash at 905 Atlantic Avenue, at the corner of St. James; the venue regularly hosts art exhibitions, dance performances, and concerts, but September 28th promises to be a unique night for the space and one memorable night in Brooklyn.
