Jazz fest set; Wigstock mothballed
Although the HOWL! Festival of East Village Arts has been cancelled for this summer, the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival which was incorporated into the first three annual HOWL! festivals is going on with the show. The jazz festival will be held Sun. Aug. 27 in Tompkins Square Park from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wigstock, another featured attraction of HOWL!, doesnt appear to be going solo this summer, though. Deputy Inspector Dennis De Quatro of the Ninth Precinct said while police will be providing a detail for the jazz festival, it appears Wigstock wont be happening.
