A BNB Productions Concert at Tompkins Square Park

There was a hardcore concert at Tompkins Square Park this past weekend, which I thought was actually a punk rock concert or a heavy metal concert or both. And I know that there was a Black N’ Blue Productions hardcore concert at Tompkins Square Park this past weekend because this Facebook event invite says so, and all of these news articles that have since appeared as a result of that concert say so also. And it was a really big concert, so big that the crowd of concert goers , some wearing masks and some not wearing masks has since become a big to free your face or not to free your face debate.


And in between attempting to vend those Black Lives Matter I Can’t Breathe, Not My President, S#!t Just Got Real, Occupy Wall Street, No Police State, Tompkins Square ParkUnion Square ParkWashington Square ParkMuseum of Reclaimed Urban SpaceThe ShadowFrida Kahlo, Yoga, Brooklyn and I Love New York necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins and Black Lives Matter hats and tote bags at this concert, it was seen that there were many other vendors at this concert, which almost seemed like a festival also.
 
Someone was handing out Defund The NYPD flyers on Avenue A in front of the park, the Hare Krishnas and Chilis on Wheels were serving food, East River Park Action. band merchandise tables and The Shadow had tables there also and there was even a yard sale going on during this really big concert.
 
And surely that was Clayton Patterson who was at this concert who finds himself in one of those photos posted above. And thanks @angieisallright for helping me to vend that Black Lives Matter jewelry at that table and chair from morus for one quick second.
 
And with future Shows in Tompkins Square Park possibly in jeopardy as a result of this really big concert, the concert schedule reads as follows:

Finally a solution.


Apparently punk rock stops the spread of Covid. 
 
 No masked needed while rocking out.
 
 Everyone looks happy. That is nice
 
 
We are living in crazy times. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State. Have a great punk rock hardcore concert day and more. #blacklivesmatter
