With summer drawing to a close and beach season practically behind us, you may now be wondering what to do with your weekends.

Luckily, we have Sunday, September 13, covered, as SlamBamDance returns to the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg.

With the inaugural performance ushering us into summer back in May, it is perfectly fitting that SlamBamDance now takes us into autumn—and this time around, the show will have even more to offer.

For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, SlamBamDance “is an immersive dance and rock music performance that joins choreographers with Brooklyn bands in a first-of-its-kind stage show,” according to the press release.

Sunday’s event will feature choreography by creator and executive producer David Guggino, as well as Spoken Motioncreator Katrina Phillip and Praevado Dance Collective Artistic Director Holly Maddock. This time around, the bands performing are Sun Voyager, Eiko Hara and Ice Balloons. And unlike the first show, the party continues at Knitting Factory with a post-performance set by DJ Drew Redmond.

“SlamBamDance is what happens when dance and music are allowed to organically collide, resulting in the truest form of art,” Guggino explained.

Guggino began his career at the Joffrey Ballet School and Joffrey Ensemble along with prestigious companies like Momix, Rebecca Kelly Ballet and the Chase Brock Experience. He sees his recent creation “as a new proving ground for the New York dance community – a world class choreography and improv dance experience, hung on the backdrop of independent Brooklyn music on the day Broadway theaters are dark.”

Sunday’s performance will feature even more choreography than the first, thanks to popular demand. Each band will play a five to six song set, and each of the three choreographers have arranged one piece per band.

With the success of SlamBamDance early this summer, we can guarantee that round two is set to be even more amazing. Whether you are a fan of live music or live dance—or both—this immersive experience is sure to raise the bar.

Tickets for Sunday’s show are available in advance on the Knitting Factory website for $20, or $25 at the door that day. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the performance starting at 8 p.m.
