As the weather begins to warm up, Brooklyn proceeds to morph into the outdoor playground of our adult dreams—there’s music, movies, food, and alcohol at every turn to distract you from the sticky New York summer. That’s why we love Smorgasburg so much, which is essentially just a food festival EVERY. SINGLE. WEEKEND. Starting this […]
We’ve almost survived another week, and there are some just rewards coming everyone’s way. If you want something a little more unconventional as well, then we can take you to the stars and beyond this weekend. Either way, enjoy yourselves, you’ve earned it.
It’s going to be a hot one this weekend. Drink responsibly, use sunscreen and maybe, just maybe, some good shows will be able to make us forget we’re melting, just for a few brief moments. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor options for you below.
Shortly before his passing away, Isaac Hayes played a free “Celebrate Brooklyn” show in Prospect Park on June 12, 2008. Here’s some new footage that has never been shared before. More nostalgic moments below, including “Theme from Shaft”:
This morning we asked readers if they survived this past weekend’s The Great Googa Mooga festivities in Prospect Park. And from what I’ve read online and heard from coworkers, few did.

The theatrical implements in his shows in the past have always been impressive and super fun, but […]
Last year’s The Age of Adz was inspired by Royal Robertson, an American artist/recluse/prophet (?), who Sufjan apparently became obsessed with. If you’ve been to any of the live shows on the Adz tour, you will recognize a lot of the imagery as being Robertson’s. In his newest video, Stevens painstakingly hand animated some cut-ups […]
Every one of the people on stage during this performance on last night’s Fallon is doing more in the five minute span of this song that I have done so far all week. Multi-instrumentalists, harmonizing vocalists, emotional facial expressions. Bon Iver play at Prospect Park on August 10, and will clearly blow everyone away when […]
On Friday June 10 at 8:15pm Andrew Bird will play the Celebrate Brooklyn! Opening Night Concert. Since 1979 Celebrate Brooklyn! has provided outdoor performing arts festivals in Prospect Park. The festival offers music, film, spoken word/theater, dance, and more. The best part is all Celebrate Brooklyn! performances are free! Obviously they couldn’t do it alone, […]
