Every summer, the wonder of Celebrate Brooklyn reappears, a seasonal bevy of incredible shows at Prospect Park which seem too good to be true. In keeping with that tradition, the bandshell is graced by indie rock royalty, none other than Neutral Milk Hotel. After releasing their one-off, intensely adored In the Aeroplane Over the Sea and just one other record, Jeff Magnum and his crew pretty much disappeared. But last year, the group resurfaced and has been touring with a newfound verve. Although most of the Celebrate Brooklyn shows are free, this concert is doubling as a benefit to raise money for the concert series itself and for Children of the Blue Sky, an organization aimed at helping homeless children in Mongolia.
