Listen to the sweet sounds of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes + Preservation Hall Jazz Band 
Alexander Ebert's  ten-person-plus collective is back with a lush folk-pop psychedelia, new album, Here. Don't miss his troupe of happy-clappy hippies in the fitting setting of a balmy summer evening in Prospect Park, plus Preservation Hall Jazz Band with New Orleans-style jazz.
Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn, 7pm, $45, $35.50 advance

Travel back (or forward?) in time at Back to the Future II
Marty McFly and Doc are causing mischief throughout time once again in Back to the Future II. This time, bring along a chair and a blanket to watch the flick seaside in the Rockaways. Refreshments will be provided, but feel free to bring along a picnic to relax after a sun-soaked day.
Beach 17th St at Seagirt Blvd at the performance stage in O'Donohue Park, Rockaway Beach, 8pm, free

Share in the transplant experience at "I'm New Here-Can You Show Me Around?"
Recent New York transplant, author of The Men Who Stare at Goats and Time Out New York contributor Jon Ronson is joined by Irish storyteller Maeve Higgins for a show that takes an amusingly exasperated look at the experience of moving to New York City.
Union Hall, Brooklyn, 8pm, $10
