Tickets for tonight’s show are still available. Maybe this isn’t the most exciting start for the venue, but there are a lot of cool shows coming up, including Refused with Off! on Wednesday (7/18), a big outdoor edition of Eugene Mirman‘s “Pretty Good Friends” with “special guests” and OK GO on Thursday (7/19), Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and Antibalas on August 18 (FREE), Bob Mould playing Sugar’s first two albums on September 7 (FREE), David Byrne & St. Vincent on September 29, Animal Collective on October 5 and more. All upcoming Williamsburg Park shows are listed below.
If you’re a fan of Field Report (aka former Justin Vernon cohort Chris Porterfield) but would like to see him in a more intimate setting, he’s also playing an early show at Mercury Lounge on Saturday (7/21). Tickets are still available and we’re also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter are below.
