This week, JellyNYC, which hosts the “Pool Parties” series that runs from June 24 through August 19 at Williamsburg’s McCarren Park, announced this summer’s schedule, and it’s cooler than anything Mr. Softee is dishing out. Confirmed acts so far are rockers Blonde Redhead, Ted Leo, the Thermals and the Rub DJs — famous for the monthly party at Southpaw.
A hit with hipsters and families alike, the free “Pool Parties” feature live music, full-court dodgeball (champions take home the “Dick Cheney Golden Dodger Trophy”) and a 32-foot Slip ’n’ Slide, turning the usually quiet pool into a makeshift local water park.
“You’d be hard pressed to find anyone that has ever been to JellyNYC’s Pool Parties that doesn’t have a blissfully eternal memory tattooed on his brain,” Doug DeFalco, lead booker for JellyNYC told GO Brooklyn.
The McCarren Park “Pool Parties” begin on June 24. Visit www.thepoolparties.c... for more information.
