Since lots of people have been asking about McCarren Park Pool, here’s the short answer. Yes, the venue will once again be hosting shows this summer. Sadly, this will be the last summer to enjoy live concerts. [Full story here]. We’ll be maintaining the calendar at www.mccarrenpark.com.
Beginning in June, JELLYNYC and Helio will be hosting free Pool Parties on Sundays. Meanwhile, Ticketmaster will be selling shamefully overpriced tickets for the shows they represent as well. Hopefully, Live Nation won’t be transforming McCarren Park into patchouli-infested hacky sack land again this year by booking jambands.
Confirmed shows thus far include Wilco, M.I.A. and Hold Steady. There are some pretty cool rumors circulating too. Visit mccarrenpark.com for the full schedule.
[Note: this will also be our last summer to maintain www.mccarrenpark.com, so attention real estate moguls, we're accepting your highest bid on the site.]
