    We’re going to have to sit tight for the full Celebrate Brooklyn 2011 lineup, but we do know this: The Decemberists will be capping a stretch of European and then U.S. touring with a hoedown in our very own backyard, Celebrate Brooklyn announced yesterday on Twitter.

    Colin Meloy and the rest of the Portland crew—who just released their sixth album, The King is Dead--will play a benefit show for the series at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Park Slope on June 14 with Best Coast supporting (fresh off a Bonnaroo appearance). (The benefit shows, like last year’s Rufus Wainwright extravaganza, help keep most of Celebrate Brooklyn free to the public.)

    Tickets for this special gig go on Amex presale on Wednesday, March 3 at noon, and then open up to the general public on Friday March 5, noon.
