One of the best places to head in the city as the weather warms is Brooklyn Bridge Park. Tonight, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy partners with Celebrate Brooklyn! for the first of many free outdoor dance parties to take place in the coming months. Featuring Balkan Beat Box and DJ Joro Boro, the theme for this evening’s rager is gypsy punk. Known to put on an insanely energetic set, Balkan Beat Box was formed in the early 2000s by Tamir Muskat and Ori Kaplan, who have worked with likes of Firewater and Gogol Bordello. Expect some eclectic beats to emanate at this soiree. And if you get there early, you can catch belly-dancing lesson from Dance of Venus.
