Schumer Likes Pool Parties

The team behind the Jelly pool party concerts in Brooklyn, N.Y., which were moved from McCarren Park Pool to the East River State Park earlier this year, is once again scrambling to secure a home for the shows.

The annual free concert series, which this year included shows by Grizzly Bear, Girl Talk, Dirty Projectors and Mission of Burma, recently announced that it received notice from the state parks department that Jelly may not be able to return to the East River waterfront in 2010.

Jelly could get tossed a life preserver, however. It appears Sen. Chuck Schumer has gotten behind the Jelly cause and pledged to keep the parties in the park.
