Belle & Sebastian, Yo La Tengo: Prospect Park Bandshell, July 11, $42.50
Another week, another Celebrate Brooklyn show at Prospect Park. This time though, the lineup is especially impressive with indie-rock mainstays Yo La Tengo and twee heroes, Belle & Sebastian. Don't miss it.
Thursday, July 11, 7 p.m. Prospect Park Bandshell, Prospect Park West (between 10th and 11th streets); Brooklyn.
Julia Holter, Jessica Pratt: (le) Poisson Rouge, July 12, $18
Crystalline, hypnotic, diaphanous... describing Julia Holter's music is no easy task. One of the most talented and original artists working today, the best way to capture her sound is probably the old fashioned way: just listen to her.
Friday, July 12, 7:30 pm, (le) Poisson Rouge,158 Bleecker Street (between Thompson and Sullivan streets); 212-353-3474.
