And so it was another day that I found myself attempting to vend those DecorForU Jewelry , necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each at Tompkins Square Park yesterday, and it was also another day that I found myself taking a bunch of photos of people holding those Fly Orr PANicDEMIC flyers  again and taking a bunch of photos of DJ Spike PolitePinc Louds  who has been playing at Tompkins Square Park  and that Tompkins Square Park Police Riot 32nd Anniversary (1988-2020) concert yesterday, with the text to that concert flyer reading like as follows:

“First Show of the Season !
Finally.. A 2 Day Special Acoustic Chapter .. First Ever Acoustic Show in over 30 years.. Acorn Slim Scott Newman and John Lane Dean Rane Gass Wild
Rew Starr Dead Dean Chris Iconicide Spike Polite. And SEWAGE and Direct From Long Island.. The Beautiful
Karen Bella.. Its Saturday and Sunday Friends.. ( This Weekend ) So Lets All Show Up.. Like we Always do, Support Our Locals. And have a Great Time ” ….. 🖤😎😷😈🤘
Taking Over- “OUR PARK “

Tompkins Square Park, August 1st-2nd, 1pm
Both Daze ….”

And there was a moment before the concert began when someone from the New York City Parks department came from out of nowhere and tried to shut that concert down, though in the end, the concert was allowed to proceed.  And there was a moment when Pinc Louds played at that Riot Reunion concert for one quick second, and then they went off to play at that Temperance Fountain during that Riot Reunion concert yesterday, as in some of those photos and videos that find themselves posted above. And there was a moment when @iamrandyluna shared this instagram story of my black lives matter jewelry on his instagram page.  And there was music, music and more music again. And they played into the night at Tompkins Square Park. Bring your dancing shoes to Tompkins Square Park I guess. #blacklivesmatter
