Free Concerts - Jelly NYC Pool Parties, June 24th - August 19th, McCARREN PARK POOL

**Guest Post from Aaliyah**
Some people complain about New York City in the summer...smelly streets, long waits at your favorite brunch spots, Time Square style crowds galore.. the list goes on. So, many New Yorkers beat the heat with long weekends in the Hamptons, Block Island and basically anyplace outside of the city. But... if you're like my friends and myself you LOVE New York City summers. Mango slushies, summer Fridays at work, roof top relaxation, bike rides, 900 open flea markets, and loads of shows at the parks. A lot of these outdoor shows are free in the summer, you can literally walk around your neighborhood and find yourself at a show - I have! Let's start with the Jelly NYC Pool Parties at McCarren Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. These free concerts already started but you can still check out bands in July and August - Erase Errata, Ted Leo/Rx, The Thermals, Ghostland Observatory, Octopus Project, Man Man, Illinois, I'm from Barcelona, Dengue Fever, TV on the Radio, Blonde Redhead, The Coydogs and more. It's first come first serve so RSVP and make sure you bring a blanket for lounging.
