David Crosby says revealing new documentary is ‘brutally honest’

David Crosby will finally make it to Asbury Park.

“I hear it’s a pretty little town,” Crosby, a founding member of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, tells The Post. “I think I will be pleasantly surprised.”

The 77-year-old singer isn’t coming to the Jersey Shore rock town to honor pal Bruce Springsteen — although Crosby may pop into the Stone Pony — but for the Asbury Park Music & Film Festival, where “David Crosby: Remember My Name” screens next weekend.

Crosby calls the Cameron Crowe-produced documentary a “brutally honest” account of his storied life, which has included a relationship with Joni Mitchell, prison time, addiction, a liver transplant and, of course, music.

“He knows a lot about me,” Crosby says of Crowe. “When he asks questions, he can be merciless, and he gave me nowhere to hide . . . It’s about how I became who I am. And it isn’t all pretty.”

After the April 27 screening at the Paramount Theatre, Crosby and the “Almost Famous” director will sit for an audience Q&A.

They aren’t the only boldface names at the festival, which runs April 25 through 28. On Thursday, Jakob Dylan and Cat Power will perform songs by the Byrds, the Beach Boys and the Mamas and Papas at the Paramount. The Farrelly brothers — “There’s Something About Mary” filmmakers Peter and Bobby — will appear for a career retrospective and intimate Q&A on April 28.

Also screening April 28 is a doc on Phish’s frontman, “Trey Anastasio: Between Me and My Mind,” and, on April 27, one about E Street legend Clarence Clemons, “Who Do You Think I Am?”
