These shows are all free, and take place this summer at the McCarren Park Pool out here in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.
JUNE 29I'm looking forward to July 20th, 27th, and August 3rd the most, but will probably end up at most of these. Rock on, free music. I've heard rumors that this might be the last summer for these shows, as Bloomberg's trying to remake the pool into a pool. Like the old days. That'll be sad, as it'll wind up full of hipsters and used band-aids...which I guess isn't really much different than the free shows.
