Sacrilegious Parades and BreezyGrass

Sandy Boyer telling TPQ readers what Radio Free Eireann is hosting this weekend.

On Saturday August 23 at 1 pm New York time Radio Free Eireann will talk with Brian Fleming about his new documentary on the St Pats for All Parade A Sacrilegious Lesbian and Homosexual Parade which will premiere at the Dublin Fringe Festival in September. It is described as:

Everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s Day, except in New York, where LGBT groups have been banned from the St Patrick’s Day Parade for 22 years. Since 2000, the St Pat’s For All Parade in Queens has championed diversity and inclusion. With the help of the Holy Trinity (St Patrick, Panti Bliss and the Naked Cowboy), Fleming takes us for a romp through 14 years of celebration and resistance.
 
The Celtic rock band BreezyGrass will also perform live on stage at Rocky Sullivan's of Red Hook, 34 Van Dyke Street in Brooklyn. The four member band describes its music:

From that high lonesome sound to mountain ballads to Celtic infused jams — notes and tones from Appalachia to the sun soaked shores of Cali are there all out of a NYC focus.
 
Radio Free Eireann is heard on WBAI 99.5 FM and wbai.org on the web where it is archived for 10 days. We broadcast live from Rocky Sullivan's of Red Hook, 34 Van Dyke Street, home of the finest Guinness and pizza in New York.
