Summer in Williamsburg means free waterfront concerts!
Deerhoof and Xiu Xiu open JellyNYC’s fifth annual Pool Parties at East River State Park on July 11, the first of seven free concerts on Sundays through Aug. 29.
Other concerts on the just-announced schedule include:
• Murder City Devils and Silver Ghost on July 18.
• Cap’n Jack, Lightning Bolt, No Age and The Death Set on July 25.
• A Brooklyn Bowl block party on Aug. 1.
• Cut Copy, Memory Tapes, Glasser and Restless People on Aug. 8.
• !!! and Future Islands on Aug. 15.
• Chromeo and Telephoned on Aug. 22.
• Delorean and Dominique Young Unique on Aug. 29.
Formerly at McCarren Park Pool, the Pool Parties shifted to East River State Park last year. The biggest loss was the slip ‘n slide, but this year, JellyNYC will more than make up for it with an expanded beer garden along the southern edge of the park.
The free concerts aren’t the only ones to take the stage, as the Open Space Alliance is presenting eight paid concerts this summer, including Weezer on July 16, Modest Mouse on July 23, Primus and Gogol Bordello on July 30, Keane on Aug. 6, Pavement on Sept. 19, and Belle and Sebastian on Sept. 30.
