Let’s get together to see Mr. Bombastic himself: Shaggy, and TK Wonder at this Free Outdoor Concert in Prospect Park.

Shaggy / TK Wonder

Bust out those Google Calenders, because the long cold winter nightmare of not seeing free outdoor shows is finally over. This year’s Celebrate Brooklyn lineup is just another annual reminder of how much better and full of free stuff summer is, which should make all the other seasons feel bad when they look in the mirror. Highlights include Theophilus London, Mavis Staples, Big Boi (as previously reported), James Lidell, the awesome They Might Be Giants and, rounding it all out… Shaggy?! Sure, why not, it’s summer!

The day the Kingston-born chart topper Shaggy moved to Flatbush as a teenager, it became his destiny to play Celebrate Brooklyn. He is dancehall’s biggest crossover star ever for a reason—his impossibly catchy party anthems are “unabashedly geared toward good times.” (MTV) The electro hip-hop artist TK Wonder’s “ability to spit at aggressive tempos is rivaled by few of her contemporaries, and she’s got that killer combination of looks and skills that the game is sorely missing.”
