I feel bad for millennials, unlike Gen X’ers they never got to experience multiple viewings of the classic movie Apocalypse Now during their formative years. On the other hand, most of them probably still have the good fortune to be able to experience it for the very first time and be awed by it.
What does this have to do with LIC? Well there is going to be an eclipse occurring tomorrow afternoon and there will be numerous happenings down by the waterfront. First of all, there will be a ritual sacrifice of a water buffalo in the middle of the oval – just like in the movie. Better yet, it will be accompanied with a live concert by The Doors. And, as with all these type of rituals, participants will be naked – with or without body paint.
Ok, maybe I’m having a flashback and conflating things a bit, but there will be an eclipse tomorrow at 1pm and there will be a number of happenings at the Oval including a live performance by G Love & Special Sauce at 12:30pm. So recruit a few of your friends and make like Colonel Kurtz and create your own eclipse freak show.
//ALSO tomorrow, to continue celebrating the eclipse you can attend Jimmy Van Bramer’s ?? Birthday Party w/ a Purpose at Shi. Starts at 7pm and open to all, but you must RSVP
