VELOCITY CHYALDD AS MAE WEST AT HOWL! FESTIVAL

OK, so the East Village may feel like a shell of itself for those of us who remember how it was back in the day. But, if you’re ever in New York for the HOWL! Festival, fear not. Allen Ginsberg’s epic poem comes to life, at least for a weekend, at Tompkins Square Park in varied forms of exhibitionist expression.

This year’s celebration of counterculture included: the always popular “Art Around the Park,” a lively and loud children’s carnival, Soap Box Poets, the Museum of Interesting Things, Riki Colon’s “Men in Skirts and Still I Rise,” Hip-Hop HOWL! and Jackie Factory’s Low Life 7: Bowery Bombshells (paying homage to a “glorious mix of female firebrands, artists, libertines, showgirls and other pioneers” of the East Village and Lower East Side).

  1. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
