It was a perfect summer night in New York City. No humidity, not too hot, a slight breeze, and brilliant moonlit sky. It was the perfect conditions for a night in the park. As part of Celebrate Brooklyn's annual free concerts in Prospect Park, alternative hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030 performed a rare live concert with a full orchestra to help close out their current North American tour. The group, which released their latest record, The Event II, last fall, have been on-and-off the road for the last few months and Deltron fans know that if they are touring now, who knows when they could tour or play again. So, it was no surprise that the Prospect Park Bandshell was jam packed with fans from all over the boroughs, as well as curious ears who wanted to see what was happening in their park that night.

... With the orchestra, Del rapping his head off, Dan conducting, and Koala simply destroying the turntables, all being done in front of trippy images projected on a screen behind the artists, it was full on sensory overload. With a healthy mix of songs from their classic 2000 debut and Event II, the 90-minute set was just too good to end. [Officially A Yuppie]

Alternative hip hop greats Deltron 3030 kept their reunion alive with a summer tour that just wrapped up this past weekend with a free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park on Saturday (7/19) and an Asbury Park show the following day. Prospect Park was opened by Montreal hip hop collective Nomadic Massive and a solo set from Deltron's Kid Koala before he was joined by Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan the Automator and a full orchestra for Deltron 3030's set. Pictures of the show are in this post.

The crowd was whiiiiiiiiiiite. No seriously it was a great mixed crowd of jam band college boy druggies and little babies running around like they own the place because the parents certainly think they do. One druggie had to be taken down violently on his way out and not 30 seconds after his removal, a toddler took over the spot to dance.

Best part was Deltron sort of mocking people for only coming because it was free (this is becoming a pattern at these shows) and later saying he's been holding in a poop all night.

No shit people only came because it was free.

My favorite part of Celebrate Brooklyn is the white people and the toddlers.
