August 7

LL Cool J – Wingate Field (Winthrop St btwn Brooklyn and Kingston Aves) 7:30PM FREE

OK, there’s a new Roky Erickson doc debuting tonight at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater’s Play It Loud Festival and I have another chance to talk about amazing veteran instrumental purveyors The Flying Luttenbachers, who tonight play at Cake Shop, later this week. And it would be hard to go wrong with Manu Chao or Gary Newman except for the stiff ticket prices. But tonight belongs to a local legend of epic proportions.

The 24th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Concert Series has been throwing down the freebies every Monday since July and tonight brings you LL Cool J himself. Of course Cool James doesn’t needed any kind of introduction - even to folks who don’t really care about hip-hop. So, whoever you are, I know you can imagine how its gotta feel when he rocks the bells at sunset for an enormous adoring hometown crowd on a warm summer night... A true New York experience that can’t be bought or sold.
