JTE in Prospect Park
Justin Townes Earle

Prospect Park was taken over by country and bluegrass-leaning folkies on Thursday night (6/28) when Justin Townes Earle and The Punch Brothers played a free show at the outdoor Brooklyn venue. The Hackensaw Boys opened the show. Celebrate Brooklyn continues its 2011 season tonight (7/1) with reggae by Steel Pulse and Natural Expression Rhythm Band.

The Punch Brothers also have a show coming up at the Bell House in July and other dates too.

Justin Townes Earle (son of Steve Earle whose KEXP videos we just posted) recently made a music video for his song "Slippin' and Slidin.' Check that out along with some live video and more pictures from the Prospect Park show, and many more tour dates, below...

@12:08 pm

Are you thinking of Beck's "Sex Crimes"?

Does it ever get boring posting "snarky" comments that only make yourself laugh?

Posted by josh | July 1, 2011 1:13 PM

second punch brothers tune might have been Wayside/Back in Time cover of Gillian Welch. i know they played it. might not have been the second song. they also did a beck tune? i think.

musically talented, but thile seems a bit too into himself

Punch Bros were not so good. They should have been the opener as the Hackensaw Boys were much better. And of course JTE was wonderful.

Who is the woman playing bass with JTE? So sorry I missed this show!

12:08 here, 1st song was the gillian welch cover and i recognized the beck cover also (about the 4th or 5th song in). i tried to google some of the lyrics while i was there but can't even remember what they were. thanks for your help though.

Next on on NPR will be a lively discussion on the use of weaving tools in 12th century Gaul, hope you can join us.

what replacements song did he do?

Posted by Anonymous | July 1, 2011 7:08 PM

@2:57 Bryn Davies is the stand up bass player for JTE. She's fantastic.

@7:08 "Can't Hardly Wait" which he covered on his Midnight at the Movies record.

you people are pathetic
listening to music that your grandparents would enjoy
what's the matter with all of you?
are you on dope?

wow another bunch of douches on here dissing music that they don't like and know nothing about. great show as all of us who were there will attest to. if you weren't there, you missed a gorgeous night of great music in the best venue in Brooklyn. but you are all a bunch of douchbags on this site, it reinforces why i'm SO glad i'm moving in a week. adios brooklyn, you rule but the people that live here suck!

It was a great show! Who was the guitarist playing with Justin & Byrn (I didn't catch his name)?

Posted by DDT | July 3, 2011 1:39 PM

agree with 1:06. so much of indie is a full blown pu$$y attack right now

Posted by Anonymous | July 4, 2011 12:33 PM

Punch Brothers covers were:

Wayside/Back in Time (Gillian Welch)
Sexx Laws (Beck)
Another New World (Josh Ritter)
Ophelia (The Band)

I thought all three bands had great performances, although I agree with the quote at the top of the article that Punch Brothers are tough to follow. It is hard to measure up to that level of pure talent and precision. I would have loved for PB's to have played last and gotten in a few more songs.

Everyone else, if you don't like this type of music then why are you wasting your time on this article? I don't like Thrash Metal, but I don't troll around websites to anonymously insult people who do. Grow up.
