How Weird Faire (HWF)

Dance and music staged in the backdrop of skyscrapers and high-rises, djs playing cosmic music with people bouncing in the middle of the streets, it cant get better. The event happened on the intersection of Howard and Second, a road i took everyday to work for 6 months but never did it seem to have so much fun and flare to it. Recently having moved from new york i missed the craziness there and this was the perfect place to fulfill my cravings for the crazy. The event was much like a hippie circus, girls in fishnet stockings with tonnes of make-up, men with leather fetishism dressed in the tightest leather pants with their bottoms hanging out, some in bell- bottoms while others in the tightest jackets. The theatrical costumes, techno music, Bollywood songs, Bhangra, vendors, beer and a reel to reel bus were all a part of the merriment. I always enjoy a bolt of activism to galvanize my life. Slowly i am getting to know SF and i think it has an originality, character, color and culture that i am starting to like.
