Looks like it will be the last concert, um, EVER at McCarren Park Pool—*weep*—but Sonic Youth has just announced a show on August 30th. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon.
There have been petitions floating around at the Pool Parties to keep the venue as a concert space, but we’re not holding our breath. Looks like the kiddie urinal is on its way. The good news is the free shows may be transferred to Bushwick Inlet Park in 2009.
Also just announced, The Felice Brothers are headlining a free JellyNYC Pool Party with Langhorne Slim, Eli “Paperboy” Reed & The True Loves, Deer Tick, and DJ Kool Kear on August 10th.
