Ethel

"In a special Celebrate Brooklyn! commission, the nation's premier rock-infused, postclassical string quartet, the immensely acclaimed Ethel, teams up with the wild art-rock group Gutbucket to perform a new original score to the vintage Mexican science fiction classic La Nave De Los Monstruos (The Monsters' Ship, 1959). In the film, the last male on Venus has died, and two Venusian hotties embark on a quest to find men on other planets. The bands premiere the new work this evening after developing the project at a BRIClab residency this spring. Gutbucket will also perform an opening set."
That was the description of Saturday night's Celebrate Brooklyn show at the Prospect Park bandshell, that, despite the rain, still happened. Next up on the 2009 schedule of free shows in the park: Femi Kuti & The Positive Force/Melvin Gibbs¹ Elevated Entity on Thursday, June 25th. More pictures from Saturday's show below...

They actually played? I thought it would be canceled because of the rain.

"celebrate brooklyn is rain or shine."

Not true for the movies. Alloy Orchestra canceled a few years ago and it wasn't even raining. I wish Celebrate Brooklyn would be consistent.

Femi Kuti should be good.

any photos of the crowd that night? I'm curious how many people went with the rain.
