Pool Parties

With Brooklyn's McCarren Park Pool ceasing to exist as a music venue in 2009, JellyNYC has moved their Sunday "Pool Parties" to the Williamsburg Waterfront. I believe the free shows will run for eight Sundays starting July 12th, and that the venue will be used for non-free concerts as well. The official announcements are probably coming any second. In the meantime, this is what we know so far....

2009 CONCERTS @ the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn, NY
Friday, June 19 - Dirty Projectors (free?, tickets?)
Sunday, July 12 - Mission of Burma, Fucked Up & Ponytail
Sunday, July 19 - Magnolia Electric Co. AND Dirty Projectors and White Denim
Sunday, July 26 - Health & Grupo Fantasma
Sunday, Aug 02 - Dan Deacon, No Age & Deerhunter
Sunday, Aug 09 - Simian Mobile Disco DJ set & Fiery Furnaces & Dark Meat & Finger on the Pulse
Sunday, Aug 16 - Del the Funky Homosapien??? & ????
Sunday, Aug 23 - Girl Talk, Max Tundra and Wiz Khalifa
Sunday, Aug 30 - Grizzly Bear and Beach House

Except for Dirty Projectors, none of this is really official yet (UPDATE: See, even that date wasn't kosher - updated correct info above), so don't make travel plans. Maybe you can consider the Dan Deacon show official, and probably Magnolia Electric Co... Update: Mission of Burma is probably confirmed too.

I also threw in a bunch of guesses on top of what I've heard. Passion Pit, Of Montreal, Ra Ra Riot, Santigold, and The Hold Steady were some guesses. My other guesses for bands playing the free shows are Gang Gang Dance and Bat For Lashes. What are yours?

UPDATE: Girl Talk is a good guess semi-confirmed, so I added it. Passion Pit & Of Montreal were bad guesses, so I removed them.

Dammit, 10:54, the guesses are there to mitigate the blight of TBA comments. Your efforts were valiant, Vegan. It is always a noble struggle.

If that's a cheap Bradford-Cox-blowing-guys comment, I'm not amused.

Exempting Burma, this is the usual suspects. Will there ever be any surprises? Dan Deacon. Check. Ponytail. Check. Dirty Projectors. Check . . .

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2009 9:47 AM

they've got all that money (rumored over $100K budget per event) and this is as good as they can do?

hey meh guy, can we talk? I know a lot of "comedy" writers got the axe when Leno retired, but you've got to pick your self up and try to look for a new paying gig. I think you'd fit in great at Two and a Half Men.

man man? they have an east river park show on their schedule, but it might be on the other side of the river. not sure...

Is the free concerts section of this site going to be updated with anything?

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2009 10:06 AM

I can't believe you guys are blaming TBA when it's the promoters who boot them off the bill at the last minute, not them canceling. That's akin to blaming a hit and run victim for being hit by the car in the first place. Get a life, losers.

meh and tba comments don't really bother me. there was one trend with mentioning someone with the name of y*** (which i wont spell out, to avoid reigniting it) that drove me insane.

Hey, I've never been to the Williamsburg Waterfront before, so does anybody know the best place to stash a dead homeless person.

Thanks

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2009 12:18 PM

in the water, DUH 12:18.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2009 12:25 PM

DUH yourself, 12:25. Dead bodies float so if you dump one in water, you have to go through the hassle of tying heavy weights to it.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2009 12:32 PM

DUH right back at you 12:18/12:32 aka squidbrains since you seek this type of advice on a food blog.

Posted by Anonymous | June 3, 2009 12:41 PM

it's a much better place to stash dead bodies than live ones

the Williamsburg Waterfront shows promise to be much like the South St Seaport shows, but nothing like the McCarren Pool shows, so calling these "pool parties" is a bit silly.

No, calling the McCarren shows "pool parties" was misleading. I came from Ohio and was very disappointed that there wasn't a pool to swim in at the rock show.

Not going to happen. The pool parties happen during the afternoon. You can't go to both. It takes a while to get to APW.
