In another ominous sign of Mayor Bloomberg’s ill-informed eagerness to [cede Manhattan to the Garden State], Bon Jovi is set to [play the great lawn in Central Park on July 12, in a replay of Simon and Garfunkel’s ](http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080701/music_nm/bonjovi_dc)[ famous park performance](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Kd8xp86reY) there in 1981.


Of course, while S&G’s harmonic somnambulist routine provided yuppies with a defining “had to be there” moment, JBJ and his feathery-haired [DUI clique] look to deliver epoch making force via BNT nostalgia for the greatest middle school girl hits of 1986. Lame.


Better ways to spend to time listening to music outside in the near future:
July 7- [McCarren Park Pool], Ronnie Spector, Rabbit Factory Soul Revue
July 10- [Celebrate Brooklyn](http://www.briconline.org/celebrate/071008.asp), Freddie McGregor, Soul Steps
July 11- [South Street Sea Port](http://www.seaportmusicfestival.com/), No Age, Telepathe, Abe Vigoda
July 13- [McCarren Park Pool], The Breeders, Matt + Kim, The Whip
