Celebrate Brooklyn!: Trampled by Turtles / The Devil Makes Three / Brown Bird
Friday, July 26, 2013
7:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
A night of dangerous old-timey music. Combining fierce musicianship with an intense energy, Trampled by Turtles invest their “supercharged songs with a hooky playfulness and white-knuckle power” (Esquire) that’s dragging bluegrass kicking and screaming into the modern world. They’re abetted here by The Devil Makes Three, who traffic in “bluegrass, folk, rockabilly, and Piedmont blues and ragtime, all played with a blazing punk-rock attitude,” (SF Weekly) and the Thomas Paine-quoting Rhode Island duo Brown Bird, who favor a dark and dreamlike take on American roots.

The Prospect Park Well House is under reconstruction in order to build a new composting latrine. The park remains open while the building gets reconstructed.
Anticipated Completion: Winter 2015
The Long Meadow Ballfields will be closed at Prospect Park for construction. The reconstruction of the Long Meadow Ballfields is a multi-phase project encompassing 34 acres of fields, paths and woodlands. The project incorporates contemporary storm water management techniques that support our goal of capturing and retaining storm water runoff. These improvements will also help to filter runoff before it enters our watercourse. Designed to revitalize the park’s sporting community, the first phase will restore Field One, pedestrian and bridle paths, drinking fountains, benches, and include new tree plantings.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
Starting July 6, 2015, Prospect Park's West Drive will be permanently car-free after 9 a.m. on weekdays and 24 hours a day on weekends and holidays. For more information, please visit on.nyc.gov/1MOAh40.
