The Occupy Providence folk are planning Occu-Stock, a "masquerade music festival," Friday-Sunday in India Point Park. There will be plenty of music - Brown electronica phenom Nico Jaar is among the scheduled performers. And Big Nazo will bring its big puppets.
Admission for the event, 4-11 pm each day, is free. But attendees will be asked to donate to Occupy Providence.
Organizers say the event will also be an occassion to discuss the future of Occupy Providence, with the city increasingly anxious to push the tents out of Burnside Park and winter approaching. There will be speakers and discussion groups in the mix.
The city has not yet approved the permits, but officials have given organizers fast-track assurances.
More on the event, and what it all means, in this week's Phoenix.
