PJ Harvey

Vocalist and guitarist PJ Harvey burst onto the alternative rock scene in 1992 when her debut single ‘Dress’ hailed worldwide acclaim. Her ninth studio album, The Hope Six Demolition Project, documents a unique artistic journey, which took her to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C. She has continually evolved her sound ranging from punk to blues and among the accolades she has received are the Mercury Prize in 2001, 2011, eight Brit Awards nominations, seven Grammy Awards nominations and two additional Mercury Prize nominations. PJ Harvey will bring her unique style to SummerStage for a benefit concert in Central Park this July as part of her select festival dates.

The funds raised at the event remain a vital lifeline sustaining the prevention, care, and advocacy programs GMHC provides for the thousands of men, women, and families affected by the disease in the tri-state area. The proceeds also benefit dozens of other HIV/AIDS service organizations that are able to participate as teams and raise funds through the Community Partnership Program (CPP).

Water Fight on Central Park’s Great Lawn

Water Fight on Central Park’s Great Lawn

A great way to cool off!

Waterfight NYC 2016 is happening tomorrow, Saturday, July 30. The annual event brings kids-at-heart together to duke it out super-soaker style while getting thoroughly drenched in the process.

If you’re not afraid to get a little wet, pick up one of the recommended “weapons” for the event (water guns, super soakers, squirt guns, spray bottles and water blaster) and head to the park for an afternoon of battle from 2-5pm.

You also might want to pick up goggles, a bucket to store water and five or more water bottles. You don’t want to run low on supplies after all. No RSVP or registration is required.
