The S.E.M. Ensemble has been performing experimental and modern music for over 40 years. This evening S.E.M. Ensemble tweeted that Palmetto Playground, the city park along State St & Columbia Place in Brooklyn Heights has been renamed Adam Yauch Playground.
The renaming effort was initiated by AdRock, his wife, and various Beastie Boys fans last May, soon after Yauch's death from cancer. Yauch played hoops at the playground as kid.
This was supposed to be a feelgood post, but I've barely finished it, and it's kind of bummed me the hell out.
