    A handful of shows have been announced at the Williamsburg Park, the new outdoor summer venue that's replaced the Williamsburg Waterfront warm weather concert series of the past few years.

    While the only hip-hop is Cypress Hill and Shabazz Palaces' previously announced opening gig for My Morning Jacket, '90s nostalgists will be thrilled as Counting Crows, Cake, Jane's Addiction and Sublime With Rome (a.k.a. one of the members of the "What I Got" band touring with a 23 year-old kid) are all playing. Not together, though. That would be a bit much.
    There's also some indie rock (it is Brooklyn, after all) with Jens Lekman, The Thermals, Beach Fossils and Of Montreal performing as part of the 2012 Northside Festival. There are also shows by punk stalwarts OFF! and Refused and a free comedy night with Eugene Mirman and OK Go.
    Williamsburg Park is located at 50 Kent and North 12. Tickets for all shows are available through TicketMaster and via SoundFix.
