For those that didn’t get a chance to say goodbye at the final JellyNYC show on Sunday or who aren’t going to be at the Sonic Youth show on the 30th (which will be a benefit for the Open Space Alliance), there will be a block party/community event at the pool tonight:

Please join us at McCarren Pool on Tuesday, August 26th for a free community Bloc Party hosted by the L Magazine, for the benefit of OSA. Doors open at 5:30pm with a Taste of Williamsburg, where neighborhood restaurants sell snacks, with all proceeds going to improve our parks through OSA. Participating restaurants include Lodge, Urban Rustic, Lokal, Le Barricou, Fanny’s, Brooklyn Label, Taco Chulo, Roebling Tea Room, Marlow & Sons and many more. Our friends from Greenpoint Wines will also be pouring. At 6pm, free performances by Trashed on Fiction and The King Left. And at dusk, a free screening of the film Rushmore, Wes Anderson’s acclaimed dramedy about a young man with an extended extra-curricular resume.

So many chances to ring out the old.
