Sunday Afternoon in Fort Greene/Brooklyn Navy Yard: The 2012 Afropunk Festival at Commodore Barry Park

We were able to get to at least a few hours of the second day of the wonderful Afropunk Festival at Commodore Barry Park.
Joining the exuberant audiences for some terrific bands who were not headliners, we got to see exciting performances by Phony Ppl,
Flatbush Zombies
and the adorable Gordon Voidwell.
We had another great time at the Afropunk Festival,
which has included a lot of fun and even some transcendent moments sharing the music as well as all the other things to do and see.
It was also really nice in these times to see so many people just totally enjoying themselves.
That means a lot.
Last year so many people were disappointed when Hurricane Irene forced the cancellation of the 2011 Afropunk Festival. (This year's tropical storm is disrupting only the less important but much more evil Republican National Convention.) We are very grateful indeed that the weather was great for this year's Afropunk fest, and even more grateful we got to spend time there.
