The music gods must have heard your prayers because this summer you can check out cool bands like Sonic Youth, Death from Above 1979, Bright Eyes and others, absolutely free! Burned Green – a site providing resources of where to volunteer in Brooklyn – and Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, have joined forces to provide you the opportunity to see the entire 2011 Williamsburg Waterfront Concert lineup without spending one dime. How you ask? Very simple – all you have to do is pick up trash, litter, garbage – you get the picture.
Spare one measly hour of your time to see a free concert in exchange for keeping the streets surrounding the concert area clean. Select volunteers will be split into groups of four and provided with gloves, trash bags and those fancy trash grabbers to clean up North 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th streets between Kent and Bedford Avenue.
June 13 UPDATE: Due to overwhelming response, ONLY 30 volunteers will be selected for each concert
Your two options are:
1) Watch the show(s) of your choice and do an hour of cleaning beginning at 9:45pm (ok, so you miss a few songs since the concerts end at 10pm) =OR=
2) Clean up after any one concert in exchange to see a future show(s) of your choice
So, you currently possess the opportunity to save $433 (value of all ticketed concerts) this summer by simply helping to keep a neighborhood clean and we say go for it!
