Andrew Bird

Andrew Bird will be the artist to kick off this summer's season of free 'Celebrate Brooklyn' shows in Prospect Park on June 10th, though if you want to pay, they have that option too:

Friday, June 10, 2011
(rain or shine)
Prospect Park Bandshell
Enter at 9th Street and Prospect Park West

5:30pm Cocktails & Dinner
7:00pm Presentations in the Gala Tent
8:15pm Opening Night Concert with Andrew Bird (free to the public)
10:00pm After-Party with DJ and Dancing, for Friends of Celebrate Brooklyn & Gala Guests

Join us for the Celebrate Brooklyn! Opening Night Gala as we honor and present the Celebrate Brooklyn! Award to Brooklynite Ray Levin and longtime Celebrate Brooklyn! sponsor JetBlue. All proceeds from the Gala will provide vital funds for free, world-class programming at the Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, which serves 250,000 New Yorkers each year. Support the festival you love and help us ensure performances remain free and accessible to everyone.

Andrew also makes an NYC appearance on March 11th. The Decemberists and Best Coast play Prospect Park four days after Andrew, though their show is not free.
