If you're looking for something to do today and tomorrow, head out to Brooklyn for the Afro Punk Festival. Having been cancelled last year because of hurricane Irene, this year is promising to be one of the best events in Bklyn this summer.
This year Erykah Badu
and Janelle Monae
will be heading the event and that's not all. You can look forward to many other performers such as comedian Reggie Watts, rap duo Flatbush Zombies, Ninjasonik, Toro Y Moi, Phony Ppl . Apart from the main event there will be street art, food trucks, a flea market and a whole lot of hotties strutting their stuff. Yours truly will be there for sure:)
I don't know about you but any opportunity to experience live entertainment for free in NYC is worth a bus, train or cab ride.
The Afro Punk festival is being held at the Commodore Barry Park today and tomorrow. This park is actually the oldest park in the borough, so dress for some serious dancing and a fun weekend.
For more information on up coming events on anything hot and Afro, here is a link to one of my favorite sites, The Roots.
See you there!!
