People at Williamsburg Waterfront last year (more by Benjamin Lozovsky)
Williamsburg Waterfront

This summer's Williamsburg Waterfront concert season begins this weekend with a free show on Saturday (6/11) (5:30pm doors). For what it's worth, that show is Coheed and Cambria, Adrian Belew Power Trio and Tigers Jaw, but it is free. It's also one of three currently announced free shows (there will be five free shows total, one of which will be classical music). The other two announced free events are Eugene Mirman and Pretty Good Friends (Patton Oswalt will be one of those friends!) and special musical guests They Might Be Giants on July 29, and a children's show with Moey's Music Party and Story Pirates (who recently hosted a benefit) on June 19 at noon.

Ticketed shows include Death From Above 1979, Death Cab for Cutie, Sonic Youth, Bright Eyes, Thievery Corporation (with Dam-Funk & Master Blazter and Raphael Saadiq opening), TV on the Radio, Fleet Foxes and more. Check out the full lineup with openers listed below...

How much discount do we got on tickets if you make less than $70k salary as a Brooklyn resident?

Wow, that line up is almost as shitty as AEG Live. Fuck that place...

What the hell is Raphael Saadiq doing with Thievery Corp? That's an odd pairing...

2:51 (the 2nd one) goes great with 2:45.

Summer 2k11 has the worst lineup of free shows since I moved here. Depressing.

A perfect day... Me and my friends sitting by the waterfront with our mustaches in full bloom all sharing a hummus platter!

Not interested. Beer jail FTL.

This is terrible. I've never seen a full summer lineup where I thought every band was great but this is beyond awful. Sucks Governors Island doesn't have those free shows. Pain in the ass with the boats but that lineup last year was pretty stellar.

Enough with the beer jail complaints Just sneak in a flask and you'll do just fine.

2:59 (second one) may I tag along? I just cashed my check from my $70k salary and my girlfriend would like to join us. She really likes my 7 and a 1/2 inches and it's big enough for her!

i hope this coheed and cambria show will be as good as the black eyed peas show last night

Sonic Youth / Wild Flag should be good. Fleet Foxes and Walkmen as well.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 3:34 PM

If you make less than $70k salary than you get in for 40 dollars provided you have a creepy mustache and make asinine inbred comments about foods like hummus.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 3:35 PM

You fags who make $40k don't like King Crimson?!?

Posted by WHAT?! | June 10, 2011 3:36 PM

so legit questions here: my friend and i are going to the coheed show tomorrow and i haven't been to a waterfront show since 2009. should we expect bag checks, pat downs and the awesome: "no outside water bottles" rule?? also, friend wants to get there to start lining up way before the gates open. is this ok to do or should we expect some security guys to kick us off the sidewalk? if anyone knows any info, because i can't find any, that would be really awesome. thank you!

The Mirman show looks great.

7.5 inches, a hummus number, the Brooklyn Vegan

Moey's Music Party and Story Pirates sounds awesome!!!!!

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 4:02 PM

What time do these shows start? If they're earlier in the day, it might tread on my brunchcore lifestyle.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 4:09 PM

Hummus, beerjain, mustache, brunchcore - AM I COOL YET GUYS?

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 4:23 PM

you know 2:41 is so, so siked he was around when they started the little 70K joke. You know he'll be including it in every witty comment he posts for the rest of the summer.

Sweet.

@3:56

The 2nd 2:51 basically answered all your questions. Only, I doubt they'll tell you to take a hike for lining up before doors open.

What's wrong with TVotR and BSSc?

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2011 5:42 PM

If the free shows are going to be this crappy, then you might as well cancel the whole thing. The pay shows were to support the free shows not to benefit the promoters.

CHECK US OUT, PEOPLE ! ! !

We are fresh in NYC from Ohio, and we wanna ROCK W'burg style !!!

Wasn't there supposed to be 5 free shows there this summer?

Remember people: you don't HAVE to remain bridge and tunnel denizens.

You can leave Williamsburg High and take adult classes elsewhere.

Adrian Belew is playing today? Might show up early to see his group and then leave.

50-70% chance of rain all over NY today..

Anyone know if this will be canceled (or moved to Brooklyn Bowl like the Cap'n Jazz show.. i hope not..)??

Somehow, 7:20 and 9:44's quotes make sense together...

I repeat myself under stress
