Gza & Jamie Lidell (& Spank Rock??) playing McCarren Pool

This Sunday (August 19, 2007) will be the last free party of the summer at McCarren Pool in Brooklyn. Hopefully it won’t be the last one ever – you don’t have to agree, but whether you want the pool next year to look something like the above video, or something more like the hipster version of Scores – just make sure you let the government know. Only you can make a difference.

Sunday’s lineup:McCarren Pool - Crack kills

* Ghostland Observatory
* The Rub DJs
* THE BALTIMORE BASS CONNECTION and guest MC’s:
**** The Cool Kids
**** Kid Sister
**** Betty Black
**** Pase Rock,
**** and surprise guests (Spank Rock??)
* Yacht

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL. In addition to Feist/BSS, Modest Mouse & The Chemical Brothers, there will be one more ticketed show at the Pool this September, and it will be a benfit for OSA-Open Space Alliance-the entity most responsible for keeping concerts happening there. The date of the show is September 15th, and the lineup consists of the very talented Mr Jamie Lidell, and sir GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan – and YES, GZA will be performing Liquid Swords from start to finish – like he did at the Pitchfork Festival. Ticket details coming shortly.
