Celebrate Brooklyn kicked off their 2014 season in Prospect Park last night with a free show by Janelle Monae (6/4). I stopped by and couldn't believe the size of the lines that were wrapped around in every direction before the show, and as early as 5pm. There were tons of people inside and outside the gate watching and listening to the show. The bandshell entrances are around 9th Street and 11th Street along Prospect Park West which ends at 15th Street. Lines were wrapped around that corner and far down Prospect Park Southwest. Did you get in? If so, how was the show? Did you say hello to a DeBlasio?

Celebrate Brooklyn continues Saturday (6/7) with the sounds of Louisiana. The next one we're really excited about is "CELEBRATE ORNETTE: THE MUSIC OF ORNETTE COLEMAN" on June 12 with Laurie Anderson, David Murray, Flea, Patti Smith, Bill Laswell and many more
