SummerScreen starts tonight!
Come celebrate the official start of summer at McCarren Park with a screening of everyone’s favorite Seth Green performance, Can’t Hardly Wait. We’re starting the night with a set from Jeffrey Lewis and the Sunny Skies, plus Weed Hounds and Ganjatronics, all presented by SILENT BARN. Thanks to Todd P and SHOWPAPER for bringing music to this year’s SummerScreen! Plus, we’ve added a few more bands to this year’s lineup, including La Misma, Potty Mouth, Hubble and more. You’ll find the updated lineup after the jump.
You know where to find us by now; we’ll be at McCarren Park at the corner of Bedford Ave. and N. 12th St. (right next to the tennis courts). Gates open at 6pm, the music starts at 6:30, and we’ll get the movie started by sundown.
And while we can’t guarantee that your entry will come equipped with slow-motion effects and a Sneaker Pimps soundtrack, we can guarantee that you won’t go hungry. Pizza Moto, Handsome Hanks, Landhaus, Coolhaus, V Spot and Selamat Pagi will be at the park all night, as will Sixpoint Brewery and City Winery. Plus, Starbucks® Iced Coffee, vitaminwater and Crunch Gym will be on site to serve up some complimentary treats. And, we’ll be raffling off a Meatwad piñata, courtesy of Adult Swim. For your chance to win, just give your name and e-mail address at The L Magazine‘s table; we’ll announce the winner right before the movie starts. And join us for the pre-show; before the movie, we’ll show a preview of Childrens Hospital, presented by Adult Swim and Roma, a short film by David Altobelli, presented by 55DSL.
