no free ‘Gone to Governors’ shows this summer (or ‘Pool Parties’ @ Williamsburg Waterfront)
Governors Island 2010 (more by Matthew Eisman)
Sadly, 2010 was the first and last year for "Gone to Governors,'" the series of 10 free summer shows that went down last year on The Beach at Governors Island. Water Taxi Beach will still operate the beach though, and their might be some ticketed shows on the beach, but that is not even definite at the moment.
Governors Island concert promoters Highline Ballroom and Bowery Presents are however still busy putting on much larger events on other parts of the island, like the Dave Matthews Band Caravan and the Governors Ball.
And, as you know, the 'Pool Parties' are also not returning to Williamsburg Waterfront this year, though there will be a handful of free events at the outdoor Brookln space. Whether Pool Party promoter Jelly has anything else up their sleeve remains to be seen.
