Wordless Music presents the free show happening tonight in Prospect Park. Deerhoof and "Metropolis Ensemble: The Rite: Remixed" are on the Brooklyn bill. You can't do both, but you could go to Summerstage and listen to the Brooklyn show on your radio. It will be live broadcast "on NPR affiliates nationwide and WNYC.org locally (7:30 pm tonight)."
