A lot going on this week in the neighborhood. Here’s a mini-round-up of Red Hook news from the web:
Music & movies on the dock:
Baby Gramps (Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday) With a gray beard the size of small shrubbery, a raspy Popeye voice and manic skills on the steel guitar, Baby Gramps plays a cartoonish variation on the role of hobo troubadour in old-timey songs like “Big Rock Candy Mountain.” But he really shines in his hilarious and ingenious wordplay, as in his palindrome song (“Go hang a salami, I’m a lasagna hog”). On Sunday at 8 p.m., Jalopy Theater, 315 Columbia Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn, (718) 395-3214; (Via NY Times)
Red Hook Films on Tuesday evenings in Valentino Park. The free line-up, which was just announced, will kick off with the 80’s classic Goonies on July 13th at 8pm. (Via Brownstoner)
And a bit down the line, DTE will be producing Maria Irene Fornes’s “What of the Night?” here in Red Hook. Stay tuned for details (shows are July 30-31) or send me an email to get involved (all ages & experience levels welcome).
