Just when you thought Brooklyn was all Bern-ed out, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I–Vermont) camp has organized yet another big public event in his home borough this Sunday — a rally and concert in Prospect Park.
The open-air shindig, two days ahead of the New York primary, will feature actors Danny Devito and Justin Long, a performance by local rock band Grizzly Bear, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D–Hawaii), who resigned as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee earlier this year in order to stump for Sanders.
The socialist candidate will definitely speak, but no word yet on whether he will perform selections from his 1987 folk album “We Shall Overcome.”
Bernie Sanders rally and concert in Prospect Park’s Nethermead (enter at Lincoln Road and Ocean Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens), April 17 at 3 pm, doors open at noon. RSVP here.
