And in the midst of all of those Black Lives Matter protests going on, and that scary virus that came from out of nowhere earlier this year to where it now seems like that mayan calendar date wants to read 12.21.2021 instead of 12.21.2012 or something, there was another one of those The Shadow Tompkins Square Park concerts that took place at Tompkins Square Park this past weekend, after that scary virus that came from out of nowhere appeared. And it was another concert that I found myself attempting to vend that Black Lives Matter jewelry at and displaying those your thoughts on black lives matter banners at, along with other arts and crafts vendors at this event. And Chris Flash’s The Shadow Presents: Autumn in Tompkins Square Park Facebook event invite read as follows:

Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM

It’s that lovely time of year when neighbors get together to celebrate the cultural vitality of their community in our beloved Tompkins Square Park.

in addition to speakers, information tables with local crafts, we will have the following musical talents:

 
> The Acute — 2:00
> Evil Kim Evil — 2:30
> Acorn Slim (with Dead Dean) — 3:00
> Jennifer Blowdryer Soul Experience (with Robert Aaron + Nikki Fuse) — 3:30
> SEWAGE (with Spike Polite) — 4:00
> Skitzopolis — 4:30
> Soul Cake — 5:00
> Rebelmatic (with surprise guest CV) — 5:30
> The Love Pirates — 6:00
> Grace The Enemy — 6:30
> Ruckus Interruptus — 7:00

 

AND: Seth Tobocman (WW# Illustrated) will do a slide show with Eric Blitz and John Wagner.

Brought to you by: The SHADOW, John Gabriel, Eddie Mack, the undying spirit of Uncle Don Yippie and….THOSE F*CKING ANARCHISTS!!

 
And Chilis on Wheels were serving some really good vegan food as they seem to do on Saturday’s in this park and extinction rebellion youth had an XR Youth NYC Guerrilla Flea Market on this day also. Climate change is real. And after the Parks Department showed up to shut down that concert a few minutes early, or on the dot, or near the very end, I guess, as in that blurry photo that finds itself posted above,  Seth’s slideshow started, in the dark, in what seemed like a few hours after the concert had ended. And it was an Occupy Wall Street mic check kind of a slide show without a mic. And if my ears heard correctly, he introduced Michelle Shocked who played a few songs into the night, as in that other blurry and dark photo that finds itself posted above.  And what else is there that can I say about this concert that has not already been said in all of the photos that have already been posted in social media land, except to say that between the bands, the merchandise tables, the vendors, the dancing, the music, music  and more music, it seemed to be a great day for another outdoor show and concert in the park. Have a great Tompkins Square Park concert day and more.

Okay, so as far as I know, Bernie Sanders isn’t really going to be at that May Day PUNK Show at Tompkins Square Park event May 1st. It’s just that with all this #Berniemania campaigning going on, and a bazillion and more Bernie Sanders rallies, concerts, subway rides, Victory Pow Wows, marches, parties, planning parties, brunches, canvassing, bus riding, actions, Bernstorming, presentations and more Berniemania events going on , and the debates and primaries just days away, I thought to put Bernie Sanders in the title of this blagh post just to catch your attention so that you can make it to that 1stTompkins Square Park concert of the year to be found in that neighborhood of the East Village to be found in that city of New York if you happen to be in the neighborhood. And Chris Flash and The Shadow had that  TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK (POLICE) RIOT 27TH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS in the park last year and a bunch of other riot reunion concerts at Tompkins Square Park before that.  Well what I kind of really meant was at leastDecorForU is planning to be there with Bernie jewelry and will be vending those Bernie SandersBlack Lives Matter, Occupy Wall StreetThe Shadow and Tompkins Square Park necklaces, key chains and magnets for one dollar each at this May Day event.  And in case you have been stuck in the stone age or hiding out under a rock or something, Bernie Sanders is running for president as part of those United States presidential elections 2016. And Bernie Sanders For President! And so back to that Tompkins Square Park Concert. And that Facebook event invite reads something like as follows:
