A favorite among Brooklyn's summertime concert series, Celebrate Brooklyn! is set at the beautiful Prospect Park Bandshell, where plenty of seating and tree-shaded areas make for a lovely spot for a picnic, a plastic cup of wine and a free show. This year's opening gala (June 4) will feature Janelle Monáe in a free concert; ticketed benefit shows include Jack Johnson, the National, Neutral Milk Hotel and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
