Well, I got out of the house too late today to catch the annual Dance Parade, but it didn't matter anyway since they all ended up at Tompkins Square Park getting their freak on..It was pretty entertaining..all sorts of dance groups performed and mingled with the park regulars..Women in striped wormy suits were wiggling around the chess tables where the drunk usually hang, half naked men wandered around on stilts, hula hoops were in abundance, and all sort of dances were being done on the main stage and in every corner of the park. The regular noisemakers were all giddy with excitement..The Hare Krishnas were chanting with a fervor i've never heard before...and that annoying marching band that is there every single fucking day even had a fan! A shirtless wingnut danced madly to them for hours! They played even better than Steely Dan on 'ludes..
Then it all gave me a headache so I went to Ray's and drank tea..Next week, John and I will be playing in Tompkins on sunday as part of the Old Time Hootenanny..I hope some drag queens show up and shake what their mama's gave them.
