Huge street fair in need of soundtrack

by -

Bring in da noise, bring in da frolic! The Flatbush Frolic, that is. We know the starlit and alcohol-infused summer has only just begun, but Ditmas Park’s longest running street festival is looking for bands/musicians to perform at this September’s frolic. For those who don’t know it, the frolic is an annual Flatbush street festival that brings out the neighborhood in force one Sunday every September (this year, Sept. 12). The frolic spans Cortelyou Road from Ocean Ave. to Coney Island Ave., and shows everything the strip has to offer—culturally, commercially and, of course, culinarily. Last year’s performers of all genres took center-stage and were heard (and enjoyed) for blocks. So start warming up them chords, vocal or otherwise, and send your link, video or other musical sample to Richie Barshay at [email protected].
