Celebrate Brooklyn! 2012 Official Lineup Announced

Celebrate Brooklyn! 2012

As expected, the folks over at BRIC Arts announced the official 2012 Celebrate Brooklyn! schedule today and while I wasn’t knocked out by it, it’s solid, with a couple of nice surprises. Some of the previously unannounced noteworthy FREE shows include: The Head and the Heart with Lost in the Trees (Jul 27), Wild Flag with Mission of Burma (Aug 3) and Little Dragon, Frankie Rose and Voices of Black (Aug 10).

View the full Celebrate Brooklyn! 2012 schedule after the jump.
