FLAVORPILL HOOKUP: One lucky reader who follows this event by clicking the green star to the right will receive a pair of free tickets!

Ushering in its 35th anniversary, Celebrate Brooklyn! has wrangled another outstanding and eclectic lineup of musicians to light up the Prospect Park Bandshell. In total, 29 shows are planned before closing night on August 10th. Patty Griffin headlined the first free show on June 5th, and tonight's special collaborative performance marks the festival's first of five benefit concerts this summer. Jim James of My Morning Jacket takes to the stage with Grammy-award winning hip-hop crew The Roots to recapture and expand on the magic that occurred when James was a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon promoting his solo record, Regions of Light and Sound of God. It might not be a benefit on the scale of Concert for Bangladesh, but with James' charisma and incredible voice paired with The Roots' swagger, it promises to be a unique and gratifying musical mash-up.
