The Persuasions
The Persuasions

The annual 5th Avenue Street Fair in Park Slope is not a cookie cutter street fair, and with lots of entertainment along the route, it's always a worthwhile day for music lovers. 5th Avenue also happens to be home to both Union Hall and Southpaw, not to mention lots of good restaurants (like V Spot) and bars (like The Gate). This year the fair takes place on Sunday, May 17th, and runs on 5th Ave. from Sterling to 12th Street.

Southpaw will have outdoor stages at both Southpaw and The Gate. Their lineup is:

The Persuasions / The Nouvellas / Chin Chin / Miss Fairchild / Keys & Crates / Sonia's Party & Everyone's Invited /BeetRoot / Josephine Band / Puppetryarts / Questions for a Super Champion / Blame The Patient / Chances With Wolves DJ's / DJ's PQ & SuZan Z Anthony
entertainment begins at noon & goes to 6pm
Plus, inside Southpaw will the NYC Punk & Underground Record Fair with "30+ tables of punk, hc, power pop, d.i.y, new wave & indee music + A FULL BAR". $5.00 to get in, 10 am doors.

Check out a Nouvellas video below...

Nice to see Brooklyn Vegan is still inspiring thought provoking intelligent conversation on the topics of gentrification and urban revitalization. Keep up the good work guys!

I must say... that chap's grammar could use a bit of work. He probably went to a public school in Brooklyn! Zing!!!

Too many white people? I guess its boring for an uncultured, uneducated person like yourself, because there is not enough street fights, and corrupt behavior going on through the fair. Sorry, about that.
One last word of advice, there are good white people as there can be white trash. There is also good black people, as there can be ni*^er trash.

so....How 'bout those Mets?

It makes my heart hurt to read these comments. I wish humans would understand each other a bit more. Fortunately, we will be able to awaken soon. So pay attention everyone and give your consciousness a boost of love!

I see that when people are anonymous they say what they want but will you express these feelings in public to a multicultural group of people, say, the subway, perhaps? It's sad to know that I am right when it comes to racial tension in this city.

Shame on you for those nasty remarks!!!

^^ please explain your comment "fortunately, we will be able to awaken soon"...are you a scientologist expecting someone from outer space?

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2010 6:37 PM

Definitely not a scientologist. Just someone who believes in a coming revolution in universal love. :)

Hello,.
My name is Edwin Vazquez and I do a blend of urban latin music mixed with Flamenco,bossa,rumba,pop,both in the English and Spanish language. I wanted to know more about performing on one of your stages,..I generally do the festivals in the city but being that I m from Park Slope I thought I'd reach out to my own community in Bklyn.
Look forward towards hearing from you!
Thank you+Edwin Vazquez
