You can bring wine into Prospect Park just make sure it is not in a glass bottle. They won't bother you if you transfer it into plastic and aren't blatant about it. Enjoy the show!

Posted by Meg | August 2, 2011 1:11 PM

nah, they won't start until at least 8:00. don't bother showing up until then.

haters gonna hate, but Sufjan was pretty damn good.
My Brightest Dildo chick is fucking creepy though (not in a gansta kinda way but in a scary kinda way)

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2011 11:06 PM

Sufjan is still around? The only person I know who thinks they're still relevant is my freshman year roommate, but he dropped out, so his opinion doesn't matter anymore.

Will there be a DVD of the Impossible Soul tour? Went to the first night at the Beacon last year and it was one of the best shows ever.
