Is there no end to the free music this summer? Not that we’re complaining! Last month, we let you know that Tropfest, the world’s largest short film festival, was headed to our fair borough, and Liev Shreiber/Sabretooth  was set to host. And if a day of innovative cinema in Prospect Park hosted by Wolverine’s arch-nemesis isn’t enough for you, organizers just sweetened the deal: the festival will feature a whole bunch of free musical acts, with performers including Chairlift, Bear Hands and a DJ set by Neon Indian!

Tropfest comes to town on June 22nd: other performers include Ghost Beach and People Get Ready, and the music will lead up to the short film competition later that night. The festival is totally free to attend, but you might want to reserve a spot before you go. As of press time, there’s no word on whether or not the Evil Festival-Hating Spirits of Prospect Park will rise up and strike the bands down mid-performance.
