Named in homage to both Iggy Pop and The Vaselines, DUM DUM GIRLSmight be the smartest band ever to put ‘60s girl group sounds through a garage rock meat grinder. Their first LP I Will Be was “a blistering half-hour of menacing, witty bubblegum pop,” (Pitchfork) and every release since has been a revelatory combination of deep musical references and pure adrenaline.

On-the-rise Brooklynites HOSPITALITY released its sophomore album Trouble earlier this year on Merge, and the record is a major leap forward artistically from the disarmingly simple indie pop of its well-received 2012 self-titled album, Trouble “makes a point of showing its listeners the difference between ‘beautiful’ and ‘cute.’ There are moments of real beauty . . . whereas other parts of this album are distinctly not easy. “I Miss Your Bones” recalls the squirmy riffs of Television.” (Pitchfork)

Brooklyn sister act TEEN—lead singer Teeny Lieberson, keyboardist Lizzie Lieberson, drummer Katherine Lieberson, and bassist Boshra AlSaadi—also put out its second full length in 2014. The Way and Color infuses their brooding pop with minimalist beats and complex harmonies inspired by D’Angelo and Erykah Badu’s classic R&B.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

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

Baseball FieldsProspect Park

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
