THE TOMPKINS SQUARE REBELLION IS ON!!
24th ANNUAL TSP RIOT REUNION!! Commemorate the anniversary of the mini police riot of July 30, 1988, followed a week later by the infamous 6 hour riot inside and outside of Tompkins Square Park on August 6, 1988, in which hundreds of "New York's Finest" from all over the city descended on our neighborhood, indiscriminately clubbing anyone in their sights in furtherance of a non-existent midnight park curfew.
Where: Tompkins Square Park: When: July 29 + August 4 + 5, 2012
These shows celebrate the vitality of the counter cultural scene that has survived on the Lower East Side, despite the rampant gentrification, soaring rents and lost venues that have contributed to the cultural genocide sweeping New York City.
Sunday, July 29:
We'll post the lineups for the shows on Aug. 4 and 5 later next week...
