Sure, tickets to see The Shins in Prospect Park sold out ages ago, but all’s not lost if you never procured one. Do what enterprising Brooklynites have been doing since the BRIC benefit shows started decades ago–BYO blanket, wine, snacks, etc. and set up camp just beyond the fence that blocks your vision of the stage but can’t contain the music. Or, go to St. Ann’s Warehouse at 7:30pm for a Spaghetti Garden Party to celebrate Iftar, or the evening meal that ends the daily Ramadan fast. This particular fete will involve performances by puppets, poets, a Balkan brass band, and more.
