@ a 2009 Pool Party (more by Tim Griffin)
Pool Party

I don't know what Veoba is either. The press release explains it though...

For the past 4 years, JELLY has hosted over 200,000 people for what has become one of the most groundbreaking FREE concert series in New York. Summer Sundays in Brooklyn have become synonymous with The Pool Parties and in the series' 5th Anniversary year, Pool Parties promises not to disappoint.

This year, The Pool Parties are again on the Williamsburg Waterfront for 7 dates from July 11th--August 29th. Due to scheduling conflicts, our August 1st date will be moved to a "Block Party" in and around Brooklyn Bowl making it 8 total "FREE Pool Party Sundays".

In celebrating our 5th Year Anniversary, JELLY also would like to give a big thanks to Senator Chuck Schumer and Phillip Goldfeder from the Senator's office for all of their support ensuring JELLY'S return to the Williamsburg Waterfront. JELLY owners Alexander Kane and Sarah Hooper state that, "It has been a long hard road this year to bring this series back to Williamsburg and it 100% could not have been done without Senator Schumer's efforts. "

The Pool Parties will be co-presented by VEOBA, an online resource for artists, managers, and record labels. Based in Chicago, but with global reach, VEOBA provides the music community with select services to progress and maintain their livelihood. VEOBA launched in May 2010 as a collective made up of music industry veterans, writers, managers, artists, and cartoon characters. From co-founder Jay Parkin, "More often than not, musicians rely on others to take their careers to the next level. We're here for those who care enough to do it themselves." Sharing Jelly's values of creativity and innovation, the people at VEOBA are thrilled to be involved in this summer's production. Parkin concludes, "For the independent and the like- minded, VEOBA facilitates the next step."

JELLY as well wants to give a shout out to all of their partners this summer from the new faces to old friends. Special thanks to AllSaints and Vans. As well as Amp Energy, vitaminwater®, SESAC, ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water, ZYNC from American Express^(SM), Spin Magazine, KEXP, and Main Drag. Along with OSA sponsors: Time Out New York, Brooklyn Brewery, and Heineken.

Now onto our official Pool Parties 5th Year Anniversary lineup! Check back soon for surprise guests we cant announce yet, the official DJ lineup for The Pool Parties 2010, and more fun things that are SURE to make the 5th Year Anniversary series one you will never forget!

The Official After-Pool Parties, presented by Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, will be held at Brooklyn Bowl following every Sunday's Pool Party!

They didn't announce who is playing the Brooklyn Bowl block party on August 1st. One complication might be that one of the bigger bands cancelled.

The only difference between the leaked lineup and the official lineup is the addition of another "SECRET SPECIAL GUEST" and the listing of some curators. You can see the full list of confirmed free shows, below...

I had to buy Kinsella tkts at Maxwell's just to cover all bases.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 12:08 PM

If Xiu and Xiu want to play one Joy Division cover fine, but why would anybody want to see them cover the entirety of Unknown Pleasures as if it could even come close to being as great as the original. Just seems odd to me.

Posted by Jaguar | July 2, 2010 12:13 PM

I was thinking the same thing about the maxwell's show! Why wouldn't that be a cap n' jazz show? Hmm.... can't lose either way, but why not simply announce it as such?

Love this fucking blog and all it's misinformation

The secret special guest is not The Cure

CapnJazz is only at the Waterfront. Maxwells is just Tim Kinsella. Sorry

Believe what you will but trust me this is true information. Or you could simply go believing idiots like the "Johnny Greenwood is the Man" liar. Hey fuckhead, how is that LCD Soundsystem is playing one of the pool parties lie going for you now(and no they are not the super special guests either)

is it still free?

Awesome! Looks like I'll have successfully evaded the obnoxious crowds at these things for another year in a row! Thanks, Jelly & Voeba, for such shitty line-ups & for keeping me away! Seriously. I'm actually very relieved & very excited that I won't have to put up with the lines & the crowds for these shows.... unless the Secret Special Guests turn out to be Drake and/or Hanson. (Kidding)

Now bring on the shows that actually cost money!!!

Posted by M | July 2, 2010 12:40 PM

"The secret special guest is not The Cure"

The fact that you felt the need to point that out discredits anything else you said after that. Also, anyone that actually believed the Cure was the special guest deserved to think that anyway. Also, since you work for Jelly, of course you're going to say Maxwell's is just Tim Kinsella.

Disappointed, except for Cut Copy and Chromeo

What is Lee Fields doing in that indie-rock sandwich?

Too bad the concerts are always hipster approved music. A soul show would have been great. Or a repeat of the Ponderosa stomp. Some world music too.

"Too bad the concerts are always hipster approved music."

Since when the fuck are Lightning Bolt shows hipster? Last time I checked they all ran away from Lightning Bolt because they would constantly get their asses kicked at shows.

You are a fucking jackass. Why would Jelly care if you come to their show or not. It is Free you dumbass. You are not paying to get in. Jelly makes their money if you come or don't come. But i guess you will find out what a moron you are when you are at Maxwells expecting CapnJazz and it's not. Although Tim Kinsella alone is great.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 1:04 PM

so why was there even something posted yesterday if it wasn't official? so dumb of jelly. get your shit together and just announce it.

Huh? Does anyone outside of the Pitchfork world listen to Lightning Bolt? Last time I saw them at 3rd Ward, there was nothing but hipsters with stupid haircuts.

I love LB, but they are a quintessential hipster band. I guess that makes me a hipster (although I am too old).

Posted by HC | July 2, 2010 1:48 PM

It doesn't make sense that Capn Jazz would have to list themselves under Tim Kinsella, especially since the show at the Waterfront is FREE. I mean the chance of a few Capn Jazz songs being played at the Maxwells show is always a possibility, but I seriously doubt it's going to be anything different than it's billing itself as.

Only in New York will people complain about a summer full of FREE concerts, if it's not the bands, it's the crowds. Bunch of spoiled whiny brats.

"It doesn't make sense that Capn Jazz would have to list themselves under Tim Kinsella, especially since the show at the Waterfront is FREE."

Your point of view is understandable, but naive. That's not how it works. These shows are funded by sponsors. Everyone involved, especially the paying sponsors want people to show up to the show. The band, ironically, is probably getting more to play a free show than they would have gotten if they played a ticketed show. Part of their deal is surely "only NYC reunion show". That detail will ensure people come to and talk about the show and support the sponsors.

If they play another ADVERTISED free show in the area, they would have broken their contract. Maxwell's is in Hoboken, after the Pool Party, and advertised as "Tim Kinsella". It could totally be a Capn Jazz show and makes perfect sense.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 3:17 PM

^^ that should have said (in the last paragraph) "ADVERTISED show in the area, free or not"

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 3:19 PM

"chapon" isn't just any chicken, it is what we call in English a "Capon" which is a castrated rooster. It's nice for roasting.

@3:17, keep revving yourself up and trying to deduce all the perfect reasons why you think it will happen. Will make it that much more amazing when you are at Maxwells, see that its just Tim and realize what a giant fucking idiot you are.

Wish I could be there to see that priceless look on your dumb face.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 3:36 PM

I'm going to spend my day masturbating to the idea that cap'n kinsella has cut copy shorts on. Truthfully speaking, Jelly can fart on veoba and surf into the murder city on a cubs fan sitting in the bleachers. I just stuck a needle in my skeet skeet. Anyways... think Jay Z will be there this year? I heard he likes free shows and huge beards.

I posted this in the other post last night, but the final headliner is Miike Snow. That's what we had down during my last week at Jelly (last week, before they fired me for being late), but I don't know who the TBA's are for the other spots on the Chromeo date and in between Miike Snow and Delorean on the final date.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 7:48 PM

7:48 is obviously a liar because no one would ever fire you for being late at Jelly, or being on drugs, or banging interns.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 7:59 PM

7:59 is Julian Duron, who is late to every Jelly meeting, is always on drugs, and fucks all of his interns.

Posted by Anonymous | July 2, 2010 8:10 PM

^^ and furthermore, you're obviously either full of shit or retarded. if you're trying to be "anonymous", you gave yourself up. they likely remember the dude they "fired for being late", unless you're suggesting you're one of many (which i doubt because jelly peeps are cool peeps and not about to fire a bunch of people for being late...especially weeks before their shows).
