Janelle Monae at Coachella 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Janelle Monae

The Celebrate Brooklyn! shows at Prospect Park are returning this summer, and the first free show of the season has been announced. On opening night, June 4, R&B/soul great Janelle Monae will kick off the season with a headlining show at the venue. Show starts at 8, and again, it's totally free.

That's the second confirmed Prospect Park show of the summer, including Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (7/26) (tickets).

Meanwhile, Janelle Monae will be in NYC much sooner, first to play a Super Bowl weekend show at Lehman College (1/28), and then to play Hammerstein Ballroom on 2/1 with Schoolboy Q, Just Blaze, Mack Wilds, #Been#Trill, and D.J. Cassidy. Tickets for the Hammerstein show are still available.

All upcoming Janelle dates are listed below...

Very very weak choice for an opening night

Posted by ME | January 16, 2014 8:51 PM

Actually it's a perfect choice for opening night. For free, this will be packed.

851 Please let us know your choice. Janelle Monae is awsome!

"For free, this will be packed"

Packed is the least of what this will be. A total shitshow in every sense of the word. They are going to be turning people away in droves. My guess is they lock the doors about 20 minutes after they open.

LOL @ 10:37 even Snora Jones was a more apropos choice than this. Sure there is a segment of the population that is all damp over this, but you ask most white people (who, be honest now, make up the vast majority of the crowd) who the FUCK this is and you will get blank stares. And as far as being awesome, just relax. The Grand Canyon is awesome. Your subjective music taste doesn't give you the right to sound like a 5th grade girl describing nail polish. So just relax.

"Your subjective music taste doesn't give you the right to sound like a 5th grade girl describing nail polish."

You are correct. It is my humanity that gives me the right to sound like a fifth grade girl describing nail polish. As for that grand canyon you mention, jump into the awesomeness, 6:35. We will never forget your brilliance. "Snora Jones" - I'm still in awe over that wit you display.

Being the only person of color to post thoughts so far, I would just like to request some Viking Metal, or Death Metal like Judas Priest for Celebrate Brooklyn
