New Pornographers

Canadian power pop royalty The New Pornographers will be touring this summer in July, a trek that wraps up in Chicago for the Pitchfork Festival. A week earlier, they'll be in NYC to make a return visit to Prospect Park on July 11, part of Celebrate Brooklyn! -- which is almost 10 years to the day since their 'Canada Day' show there in 2005. No word yet as to whether that is a free show or a ticketed benefit show, or who the openers are.

Celebrate Brooklyn has yet to announce their full 2015 schedule, but it includes ticketed benefit shows with Modest Mouse, Willie Nelson, Interpol and more, and the free Chaka Khan kickoff show.. All dates are listed, along with an Rdio stream of last year's great Brill Bruisers LP, below...
