Beyond the Burg: June 28 to July 4

Macy's 4th of July Fireworks in NYC c/o Steve Kelley

Hey guys! We’re still free from colonial power. Sorry US-installed puppet regimes and imperialist satellites we call “territories.”

This is awkward.

ANYWAYS, next weekend is our favorite (and only) summer holiday – the Fourth of July. So here are some picks on where you should shake that sexy freedom all week long.

Featured pick is a four-day electro dance party because dance parties are so United States right now:
Governors Island
Dance.Here.Now Festival: July 1 to July 4
Featuring Paul Van Dyk / Fat Boy Slim / and more
Ticket prices vary $36 to $350
And here are more picks for this week:

* Note: Apologies for a missing Monday, June 27. We were recovering from celebrating civil rights for ALL!

Comments

  1. Are you retarded? We are colonial power. Ruled by it AND part of it (unless you’re homeless, don’t work, and never buy anything).

  2. winston smith says:

    williamsburg/greenpoint are increasingly colonies of comapnies like vans and ray ban ( et al) who would have us –and we do, and we do–believe that consumption of their goods does not merely contribute symbolically to our public identities ( clothes always has) but, cynically, also generates it.

    AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY BELOVED COUNTRY!!
