Sunday, June 27, 2010
2:00pm - 6:00pm
Tompkins Square Park
7th Street and Avenue A
New York, NY

It's the roaring return of the yearly punk and variety show produced by Our Lady of Perpetual PMS and THE SHADOW - NYC's underground newspaper since 1988

He's a well-known author, teacher, political and LBGT activist. You can see pictures and he documents that there were hundreds of people present.

***A part of a series of FREE shows that celebrate the vitality and creativity of the counter cultural scene that has survived on the LES, despite the rampant gentrification, soaring rents and lost venues that have contributed to the cultural genocide sweeping New York City.***
