You’ve enjoyed a whole summer of free concerts, now here’s a chance to give back — again.

Sufjan Stevens’s Aug. 2 benefit concert for Celebrate Brooklyn sold out so quickly that an Aug. 3 show has been added.

The Kensington resident is a borough favorite thanks to the strength of albums including “Michigan” and “Illinois,” part of his “50 States Project,” a self-admitted promotional gimmick where he said he’d compose an album for each state (there’s no way his “New York” beats Lou Reed’s), and such twee song titles as “A Conjunction Of Drones Simulating The Way In Which Sufjan Stevens Has An Existential Crisis In The Great Godfrey Maze.”

Live, the multi-instrumentalist makes his shows an event, thanks to elaborate lighting, choreography and costumes. It’s not a bad way to bid adieu to this beloved concert season.

Sufjan Stevens at Celebrate Brooklyn at the Prospect Park band shell [Ninth Street and Prospect Park West in Park Slope, (718) 683-5600], Aug. 3 at 7 pm (Aug. 2 show sold out). Tickets $35. For info, visit www.bricartsmedia.org.
