Durk Dehner says: "It ís springtime and the evenings are perfect for a stroll and do we have one for you! The coming together of two of the more radical gangs of the West Village. On one side of the street you have Leather Invasion and its notorious ringleader, Robert Valin. Yeah, he's the guy that thought it was a kool idea to take his band, fully geared up, over to IKEA in Jersey. Grouping and growin' in numbers on the other side of the street are the west coast boys from ToFF House, all in line so that no one can break their stride. Got a motorcycle? Come lead the way!"

The starting point for this event is:
Julius
159 W. 10th St., New York, NY, 10014 · Map

MALE MUSE
"Whenever I was depressed or disgusted, I would feel him, that spirit inside, urging me back to living, back to drawing, I believe there is a lot to the world that can’t be seen or touched, and if you turn away from that — especially if you are an artist — you are avoiding an important part of life, maybe the very heart of it.” — Tom of Finland
