McCarren Pool "We Are the Pool!" Vid to Debut

Remember Pool Aid, the group that was agitating against concerts produced at McCarren Pool by Live Nation, the Clear Channel spinoff? They were shooting a video last summer at the pool and it appears they're launching it this month. Their email says, in part:
Save McCarren pool from corporate interests and anti-fun noise protestors by coming out to Union Pool on February 27th to see the brand spanking new video from Poolaid.
Whether McCarren Pool has been saved from anything is up in the air, as the Parks Department has been mum on programming this summer, although it held some meetings with interested parties (including some of the big concert promoters) late last year. Its planning, though, has been going on behind closed doors. There are some hints, however, that more big-ticket concerts are coming, as it was mentioned recently that money coming from concerts would be put into an open space fund for Greenpoint and Williamsburg.

In any case, the Pool Aid vid premier party is on Tuesday, Feb. 27 from 7-9PM at Union Pool.
