We had quite the dramatic storm yesterday, chock full of sudden downpours, dramatic clouds and a hell of a thunder and lightning show.

Local videographer Bona Weiss filmed in time-lapse the menacing clouds as they rolled over his apartment, not far from Avenue Z and Ocean Avenue.

Pretty cool video, though we wish some of that lightning could have made a cameo. But cool nonetheless.

On Stage at Kingsborough once again presents its “Hot Summer Nights” concert series, taking place every Saturday night in July. The concerts, which start at 8:00 p.m., are held at Kingsborough’s outdoor bandshell, in the shadow of the lighthouse, and steps from the sea wall (offering a delightful breeze in the face of generally blazing July temps). And good news, music lovers: No reservations are necessary. The concert schedule will be as follows:

July 5: Jeremy Davis & The Fabulous Equinox Orchestra, The Great American Swagger. Celebrate Independence Day with this Big Band tribute to America and great American music.

July 12: Grammy-Nominee John Beasley’s MONK’estra. Catch MONK’estra, a 16-piece big modern jazz band that captures the spirit of Thelonious Monk’s unique quirkiness and offbeat accents.

Shot near Coney Island Hospital. As the official curator of this Morning Mug business, it pleases me to no end that I get to drop not-so-obscure musical references to my favorite rock group of all time.

Actually, the wicked thing came and went, a few weeks ago. Still, this is definitely one of the coolest Morning Mugs I have ever received.

Since drones are, apparently, now a thing, I thought I’d share a photo of one (of many) I received this week. More to come in the coming weeks.
