Celebrate Brooklyn’s benefit concerts - two days of the Unlimited Sunshine Tour on Aug. 24-25 - drew more than 6,500 people to Prospect Park despite Saturday’s rain, said co-producer Jack Walsh.

"The successful benefit concert attracted new audiences for the show - the diversity of the lineup contributed to that - which was great," said Walsh.

Among the bands who performed were the Flaming Lips (Lips frontman Wayne Coyne is pictured left) of "She Don’t Use Jelly" fame. The band, who shamelessly employed everything from confetti to beach balls to fake blood to animal suits to video in their performance, is promoting their new CD, "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" (Warner Bros.).

If you missed this year’s season of Celebrate Brooklyn, the 25th season will kick off on June 12.
