free Pool Parties going national AND staying in Brooklyn
McCarren Pool - June 29, 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Gothamist: Do you have spaces in mind for similar shows next year?
Sarah Hooper (JellyNYC): Yes we do, The Open Space Alliance, Parks Department and even Marty Markowitz's office has been very clear that there will be a space for concerts no matter what in Williamsburg. It looks more and more like that will become the Williamsburg waterfront, but I'm just hoping wherever it is that it's a little less hot than 50,000 square feet of concrete! It literally is at the point where we all look like we're at a waterpark all day from trying to stay cool--either a quick juant down the Slip 'n Slide,a bottle of water over the head, or finding whichever sponsor has provided a misting fan and sitting there until I'm soaked!
Any prospects for a space that you can talk about?
As well, since there is no McCarren next year, we have decided to take Pool Parties national....
