Piercing Ken Thoughts: It’s without question that there are a lot of great artists to see in Prospect Park this summer but based on the lack of the heavier side of things it will be unlikely that I make an appearance at all. It’s fine, I have plenty of other things to do over here and on of course. What do you readers think about this year’s series? Will you be hitting any of these free performances or perhaps even dropping a few support bucks to seethe ticketed events? Chime in down below with who you plan on seeing and why they are of interest. I am sure that it will be educational for all of our readers and even myself. Thanks for reading, see you next time.
