CELEBRATE BROOKLYN! @ Prospect Park Bandshell

Details

Let's check out a free concert in Prospect Park, a mix of bluegrass, rockabilly, folk and Americana. All details below culled from the Celebrate Brooklyn website.

We will meet at the entrance, 9th Street and Prospect Park West, at 6:30pm. The show starts at 7pm. We will wait about 10 min before proceeding into the park. If you come late, enter there and follow signs to the Bandshell. Contact info will be emailed.

We may go for drinks/bite to eat afterwards at Johnny Macks (http://www.yelp.com/biz/johnny-macks-brooklyn)

"A night of dangerous old-timey music. Combining fierce musicianship with an intense energy, TRAMPLED BY TURTLES (http://trampledbyturtles.com/) invest their 'supercharged songs with a hooky playfulness and white-knuckle power' (Esquire) that’s dragging bluegrass kicking and screaming into the modern world. They’re abetted here by THE DEVIL MAKES THREE (http://www.thedevilmakesthree.com/), who traffic in 'bluegrass, folk, rockabilly, and Piedmont blues and ragtime, all played with a blazing punk-rock attitude,' (SF Weekly) and the pop-infused Americana sounds of New Jersey's RIVER CITY EXTENSION (http://www.rivercityextension.com/)."
