"Doin' It In The Park" - Wingate, Central, & Prospect Park Free Concert Series

If you know me, even remotely, you know I LOVE concerts man! Just the feel of good music live is a thrill for me. That was my real motivation for starting "Rock the BlocK BK" last year, and the reason why it's going down this year too (Aug. 15th) Till then here's some freebie shows that are happening around NYC. I made things easy for you by listing them all in one post. Thank me later. LOL!

    Damn, a lot of good shows this summer. Also, on August 8th there's a free joint out at Fort Greene Park in BK put on by F.O.K.U.S. (same ppl that helped run the BK Hip-Hop Festival) with The Kid Daytona, Keys N Krates, Belikos and a bunch of others. It's called The Stoop 09. Last year's was dope, so I'm definitely headed back this time around.
