It’s not summer in NYC without music in Prospect Park, and the BRIC! Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival shows aren’t the only ones. For something a little different, “Magic Hour” is back at The LeFrak Center at Lakeside Prospect Park with all-ages, bi-monthly parties with DJ sets and rollerskating. There’s also a rinkside bar, and food courtesy of the Bluestone Cafe and Gelato Parlor.

It began this past Sunday with Gang Gang Dance and Michael Beharie DJing (anyone go?) and it contines in June with Talib Kweli and Prince Klassen on 6/5, and Xeno & Oaklander and Heathered Pearls on 6/19. Admission for all shows are $14 and include skate rental. Tickets and more info HERE. Stay tuned for the July and August lineups.

There’s also Lola Star’s Dreamland Roller Disco every Friday night at the same spot. Check out the schedule, including a Prince vs Michael Jackson party on June 3, a Mermaid Parade pre-party on June 17, a Lady Gaga tribute + Gay Pride pre-party on June 24, and much more.

Speaking of Xeno & Oaklander, they also play Brooklyn’s Northside Festival, which just revealed its full schedule.
