An army of Juggalos descended on Bushwick last night as Insane Clown Posse performed their legendary album The Great Milenko in its entirety as part of the rap duo’s current American tour. The setting was the large back lot at the Well, so it was an outdoor show, and though Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope made the crowd wait for over an hour before finally hitting the stage, once they appeared all Faygo-spraying hell broke loose.

The fifth annual Bushwig festival turned the Knockdown Center into a rowdy two-day celebration of “Drag, Music & Love” this weekend, as nearly 150 queens and kings performed for thousands of fans of all things cheeky, flirty, pretty, raw, and/or raunchy. This was the biggest Bushwig yet, with two stages–one in the venue’s cavernous main hall, and another out in the rambling backyard–plus several first-rate food vendors, plenty of access to booze, and a whole separate room devoted to “Bushswag!”

Back-to-back demonstrations in support of Planned Parenthood brought thousands to the Village on Saturday, with some 200 Pro-Choice advocates squaring off against a scattering of abortion foes outside the Margaret Sanger Center on Bleecker Street, followed by a much larger rally in Washington Square Park.

Ad-Rock Decries ‘Homegrown Terrorism’ and Hundreds Rally Against Hate at Adam Yauch Park

From right: Ad-Rock and Kathleen Hanna (Photo: Scott Lynch)

Last week a pair of swastikas with the caption “Go Trump” were found spray-painted in Adam Yauch Park, a playground, dog run, and ball courts in Brooklyn Heights named after the late Beastie Boy, who grew up nearby. Although America’s president-elect has apparently been too busy scolding the cast of Hamilton to issue any sort of statement condemning the hateful action made in his name, the people of Brooklyn have responded quickly and with force.

Photos: Black Label’s Bike Kill Was a Wheelie Good Time

(Photos: Scott Lynch)

The best party of the year has now already happened– sorry, everybody who didn’t make it to Bike Kill on Saturday. Organized once again by the Black Label Bicycle Club, the October tradition continued for the 13th year with all of the usual crazy stunts, freaky mutant bikes, loud music, dumb-ass costumes, vast amounts of booze, and tons of glorious mayhem.

Women Show Their ‘Pussy Power’ Outside of Trump Tower

(Photos: Scott Lynch)

Several hundred Pussy Power protestors gathered on Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower yesterday evening for a boisterous bashing of the Republican nominee. Donald Trump–or, as one sign-maker would have it, Cheeto Voldemort–wasn’t home at the time, of course, as he was busy in Las Vegas further humiliating himself and his country. But Donald’s absence did little to diminish the anger of the crowd, or the increasing sense that a righteous triumph was nearly at hand.

There are many traditions (feasting with family, open-air prayer in congregation, and, these days, having a boutique butcher sacrifice your lamb) surrounding Eid al-Fitr, the three-day “festival of breaking the fast” that marks the end of Ramadan each year. For Muslims of southern Brooklyn, one of those traditions is to pack up the kids and head on out to Coney Island.

And The Winner of Halloween Was… Black Label’s Insane Bike Kill

(Photos: Scott Lynch)

The best holiday of the year set off waves of joy and craziness on Saturday, and we’re not talking about Halloween. Bike Kill, the annual celebration of freaky pedal-powered things and getting drunk while riding them, took over a semi-secluded industrial lot deep in Bushwick and, as you might expect, much delirious mayhem ensued.
