2013 Gay Pride March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
hannibal

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Gay Pride March / Pridefest / Dance on the Pier
NYC Pride Week culminates with the annual Pride March, followed immediately by Pridefest on Hudson St and then the Dance on the Pier party with a live performance by Demi Lovato.

Rat Fist @ Cake Shop
Rat Fist is the new band of No Age guitarist Randy Randall and Pissed Jeans drummer Sean McGuinness, and they make the kind of noisy racket you'd expect from members of No Age and Pissed Jeans. Tonight's their second of two NYC shows, both in tiny venues where stuff like this belongs.

Jon Batiste and Stay Human, The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble @ Central Park Summerstage
Born of a New Orleans musical dynasty, Jon Batiste has forged his own way, mixing funk and pop with his city's deep musical traditions. Free.

The English Beat @ City Winery
If you aren't too concerned that Dave Wakeling is the only original member of the band, and don't mind hearing General Public songs too, you'll probably have a good time singing along to "Save it for Later," "Mirror in the Bathroom" and "Tenderness."

Clean Girls, Baked Goods, Pink Wash @ Death by Audio
Pink Wash is the new band of Bleeding Rainbow drummer Ashley Arnwine and JOey Doubek of the now-defunct Hume. They make scrappy noise punk that actually gets a little proggy too.

'Rockaway!' w/ Patti Smith, James Franco @ Fort Tilden Beach
This is the opening day of the Rockaway Arts Fest. Patti Smith was originally supposed to just do a poetry reading (along with James Franco) but now will also do an acoustic set with Lenny Kaye and Jesse Smith. She also has as a photography exhibition and two onsite installations opening in the park that day. The reading and performance starts at 7 PM.

Cerebral Ballzy @ Rough Trade
Brooklyn punks Cerebral Ballzy last played a pretty high-profile gig in the area opening for The Strokes (they're on Julian Casablancas' label), but today they're back in their hometown for something more intimate (and much cheaper and much earlier). It's a free in-store and starts at 1:30 PM.

Maximillion Dunbar, HUERCO S., Analog Soul, Lorna Dune, Marcos Cabral, Patricia, Lumigraph @ Trans Pecos
Trans Pecos hosts another great bill of the experimental and electronic variety tonight, including RVNG-signed Maxmillion Dunbar, Software-signed Huerco S and more.

Behexen, Hell Militia, Prosanctus, Inferl, Hekserl @ Saint Vitus
Martyrdoom III, the third annual five-day metal festival at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus, is on day 3 with killer Finnish black metal band Behexen headlining.

Del Close Marathon
It's Upright Citizens Brigade's annual three-day fest with over 420 comedy performances. A $30 wristband gets you into as many as you can muster.

Comedy Night @ Knitting Factory
Big league comedy talent (Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc) show up regularly (and unannounced) for Hannibal's very popular free comedy show at Knitting Factory's front bar. Having had his own Comedy Central special and a featured performer on Broad City, Hannibal himself is getting pretty big league. Get there early.

Mother, Reputante @ Baby's All Right
While he may best known for playing Dan on Gossip Girl, Penn Badgley is also a musician and his band Mother is his current artistic focus. If you like big chorus, radio-friendly pop with no sharp corners, they do it pretty well.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Spectators who sit on the sidelines to watch the gay pride parade seem really strange... Are they impressed to see homosexuals walking down the avenue? What is it all about???

^ same reason people go to the zoo - to observe those people do their strange behavior from a safe distance

I go to see chubby lesbians with gender identity problems go topless. The whole parade is a fascinating train wreck of psychological disorders.

Posted by Ned | June 29, 2014 7:23 AM

Pride Parade = Pu Pu Platter of psychological disorders

I just go there to stroke my tiny dick. Nothing more, nothing less.

Why isn't there a straight pride parade?

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 11:14 AM

Because normal (straight) people do what we need to do, without hoopla or desire for special treatment. It's called emotional maturity.

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 11:18 AM

Normal people don't need to parade

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 12:01 PM

Even if we are not that really into such kind of scenario but we could at least try to do things like that if we are allowed to.

Posted by Marla Ahlgrimm | June 29, 2014 12:38 PM

Because straight people aren't under attack, idiots.

^I love that parade

"Normal people don't need to parade"

So what would you call that thing Macy's sponsors every year?

Or 4th of July fireworks?

Yeah, normal people are so modest.

*j/o hand motion*

Just got done walking around. Can one of the gays answer a question? Why are gay dudes, for the most part, in pretty good shape, and lesbians like 30+ pounds overweight?

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 4:08 PM

"You're the one for me, fatty"

Not every gay man is fit -- Bobby Moynihan of SNL, Harvey Fierstein, and Michael Strahan are a few examples of gay, proud and chunky!

Not funny haha, funny queer

Yeah, everyone knows that gays are not allowed at those events. PUHLEEZE, sweetie - if you want special treatment at least be, er, man enough to admit it, and not make up fallacious arguments that are quite frankly both baseless and psychotic.

And, j/o hand motion? You wish, sailor boy - but that is nothing that you will EVER get.

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 6:08 PM

Very proud, indeed.

give this event back to the gays, str8 people

To much BPA in plastics is causing a surge in homo population

LOL @ 4:44
Yeah, Strahan is gay, that's why he keeps getting married to women

Do you see a lot of unicorns in your fantasy world too?

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 8:03 PM

4:44 completely dodged the question.

I said 'for the most part'. Of course I know that not ALL gays are in shape, and that not ALL lesbians are fat.

But it sure seems that a sizable percentage of gays are fit/attractive and a sizable percentage of lesbians are overweight/unattractive.

Why is that?

If we are to accept that they are simply 'born this way', how are we to account for what seems to be a statistical anomaly?

Is it cultural?

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 8:17 PM

8:03 or fat. WTF? The guy was a world class athlete.

Just an observation, but no posts from fake D / Grammar Fag / Foot Fetish / Buckeye Shrimper all day ... I guess he's out marching

^yeah, instead we get the lunatic who wrestles all day with a figment of his imagination he has named 'Jersey Republican'. That wack job almost makes me miss FF/FD/GF/BS

Trying to get around NYC today was a joke. Fucking parade, street fairs selling $1 socks and corn on the cob ..quality of life here sucks.

Ross Perot was right - those gay people need to cut out all that foolishness they do

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2014 11:48 PM

What is Ross Perot, sounds like cheap Burgundy.

Posted by Anonymous | June 30, 2014 12:02 AM

Call him what you want, but Ron Burgundy is anything but cheap, ladies.

Posted by Anonymous | June 30, 2014 7:00 AM

Ron Swanson > Ron Burgundy

definitely a lot of comments from one guy here, and his girlfriend--after years of dissatisfaction with his sexual performance--definitely left him for another girl.

it gets better, fuckface.

If there's one thing a narcissist really hates it's being ignored.

That is exactly what I would want out of an English Beat show, plus 'I Confess'
