Local cover band the Meetles will be in Tompkins Square Park this afternoon (1-6) for their annual summer show.

Per the invite: "Enjoy classic rock from 1950s to 1980s: Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, Motown, and much more! For everyone's safety, please wear facial masks/facial coverings to attend this event and as always, practice social distancing!"

And from noon to 5 today, the local chapter of the War Resisters League is bringing the Hiroshima-Nagasaki exhibit to the area around Temperance Fountain.

Via the invite:

Join us as we stand against nuclear weapons on this 75th anniversary of the U.S. bombing of Nagasaki. On display will be a 20-panel exhibit chronicling the history of the nuclear arms race, the connection with nuclear power, historic demonstrations against nuclear weapons and power, and what can be done to prevent this ongoing deadly menace from becoming a worldwide cataclysm.
