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
