Joan Jett! I saw her play the Hoboken Arts festival a few years ago. Never saw a mosh pit of aging bull dykes before.

Mystery night is probably someone who is playing a paid gig somewhere else in the area at some point before the free show occurs.

July 21 - An evening with The Monkees with special guest MC Jay Black


MC Jay Black = J. Black = Jack Black

If you liked Nacho Libre, you will probably like at least 65% of his set.

MC Jay Black= Jay Black of Jay and the Americans

I can't wait to see TBA. I haven't seen them since they played McCarren Pool in '07.

Posted by The Mighty KC | July 6, 2011 11:51 AM

How is Coney Island these days. I had a chance to go about a decade ago, but couldn't. I'm thinking of going there soon, but I hear it isn't the same. Anybody?

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2011 11:54 AM

Wow...Joan Jett, Cheap Trick. That other post about Blondie. These old farts really need to quit while they are ahead instead and head down to Del Boca Vista.

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2011 11:54 AM

TBA... weren't they a Latin Freestyle group from the 80's? *One way lovah, joo got sometin, gurl you played me for a fool...*

Whoever the mystery band is, I can only hope BV shows yet another grostesque picture of the huge, sweaty, George-the- Animal-Steel-looking singer from F**ked Up.

11:54 - I'm not sure how long it's been since you've been there, but in the last 10 years, they've put a minor league baseball stadium there, removed Astroland, and put Luna Park in its place. The subway station was completely redone (actually kinda cool). But it's still the same old Coney Island.

Coney island had better hummus back in the day.

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2011 4:13 PM

Nobody anymore eats hummus on the beach

Posted by Anonymous | July 6, 2011 4:21 PM

Hey 4:06, thanks for the info (or update, haha). Appreciated.

There's gotta be some places in BK for 4:13/4:21 to buy a life.

Bring your cameras...its a giant open park with hardly any security. They cannot enforce the no camera rule.

Posted by Anonymous | July 7, 2011 3:06 PM

coney island is amazing. yes you should go. this summer is the last summer it will be good. next summer they are ripping the whole thing out and kicking out every single boardwalk business to make it terrible, commercialized, sanitized, giuliani-bloomberg-ized. go this year. and have a blast!

Felt like a concert at Rikers Island with all the security and police.

Posted by Anonymous | July 15, 2011 12:52 AM

2:33 PM-I smoked and so did everyone else who wanted to smoke.Unless Bloomberg leaves his Bermuda mansion to head over to Coney Island with his health comish Tom Farley,noone gives a shit.

Great new venue, Better than Asser Levy. I hope Marty keeps the Concerts here.

Posted by sam | July 16, 2011 3:10 PM

advertised as a free show but they have to lose the $5 designated seat area. it was just wide open wasted space front and center. the seats were sparsely used at best and 90% of the people there were standing and crowded around the barricades for a decent view.

Posted by teddylishus | July 18, 2011 11:37 AM

One of the very few times that I walked out on a concert, and this one was for free! Their voices were off from the very beginning and slightly improved thereafter. The song selection was unrecognizable maybe used to hide their horrible voices because the crowd would have easily known their shortcomings on songs we know and love. Time to retire.

Posted by Joe McTavish | July 22, 2011 9:28 AM

Monkees show was great. Lots of deep album cuts and not just a greatest hits show.

Posted by Anonymous | July 22, 2011 11:48 AM

The opening band for Cheap Trick is no longer listed as the Rattlers from Athens, GA but Mickey Leigh's New Yorkestra from here.Joey Ramone's brothers new project.

I downloaded a couple mp3's from their website and their music is pretty good!Attitude and something to say beats southern rock bleh.
