BrooklynSkeptic has recently unearthed MORE free summer concerts at the MLK Jr. Concert Series!
Where? Wingate Field, Brooklyn
Who? Oh, nobody important, just a little group called BOYZ II MEN!! I don’t know about you, but that is certainly enough to make me hunt down my seventh grade crush and ask him to stiff-arm slow dance with me. j/k, mooseknucks. I’m down on bended knee.
Catch Boyz II Men (though it’s important to remember that they still think of themselves as a legitimate group, they’re down to 3 members, and who knows how their cooleyhighcanharmonize without Michael McCary – who, I just learned from Wikipedia, left the group because of chronic back pain from scoliosis. So sad!) with special guest Ruben Studdard (he’s getting around this summer!) July 23.
And don’t miss out on old skool night tonight! Featuring MC Hammer, Slick Rick, Doug E Fresh, and MC Lyte! Oh shit! I remember so clearly buying MC Lyte’s cassingle and feeling so fucking cool. That show will be the shit, no doubt. Boyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
