The Pool Parties are back … kind of! Except now Jelly is calling the event series Rock Beach and it’s kind of a pain in the ass to get to unless you take the $20 party bus, which is well worth the money because the whole thing is pretty damn fun. Wild Yaks and Penguin Prison were on hand to play some summery tunes for the small crowd, and old favorites like the slip-and-slide and dodgeball court were back for people who wanted to get some drunken exercise. Oh, and there is a pool, where you can cool down, take a swim and admire the stringy arms and pale skin of Brooklyn’s hippest inhabitants.
One good thing about having a concert that nobody can get to is no lines for booze or the bathrooms! Plus you can go on the slip-and-slide as many times as you damn well please, for reals. It’s like when you were a kid and dreamed of running around an empty amusement park, except there’s more alcohol. I’m sure this will change as more people hear about the wonders of the party bus, which you could get tickets for online or right before you got on. Next show is July 24th, so mark your calendar.
