UPDATE as of 7/27/09: Please note changes* in the performances for July 30 and August 20. The concert originally scheduled featuring Franki Valli and the Four Seasons and Connie Francis has been moved up to July 30 from August 20.

We’re lookin’ forward to the 31st Annual Seaside Summer Concert Series, and you should be too. Shows are held Thursday nights at 7:30 p.m. in Asser Levy/Seaside Park at West 5th Street and Surf Avenue in Coney Island/Brighton Beach, across the street from the New York Aquarium. It’s a shame that this year’s events are marred by the recent controversy around the site. Local Jewish groups are opposing Brooklyn Borough Prez Markowitz’s $64 million plan to turn the tiny band shell into a top-notch 8,000 seat arena – which would certainly help revitalize the area. But no need to get distracted by that; instead, go see these great shows!
