They Might Be Giants, Femi Kuti Playing Free Celebrate Brooklyn! Shows


Though it hasn’t been “officially announced yet”, They Might Be Giants drummer Marty Beller recently posted a message on the soon to be “fee based” Park Slope Parents message board announcing a free TMBG show at the Prospect Park Bandshell on July 11 (as an aside, I actually saw this info on before Beller’s posting). Another unofficial announcement for the June 25 show at Prospect Park featuring Femi Kuti came by way of press release for his upcoming tour.

The rest of the official Celebrate Brooklyn! schedule will be announced May 4, until then you can check over here for my unofficial 2009 Celebrate Brooklyn lineup.

More TMBG and Femi Kuti tour dates after the jump.
