Coney Events: Fight For Your Right To Coney

Lola Staar and the Save Coney Island group presents "Fight For Your Right to Coney" a rock & roll extravaganza, March 31st at the Bell House!

From the press release:

Save The People's Playground featuring the music of sexy pirate rockers JOLLYSHIP THE WHIZ-BANG, sassy KISSY KAMIKAZE, the deliciously haunting TYBURN SAINTS and a fabulous array carnivalesque performers from the sultry sea of Coney Island!! DJ OLE KORETSKY will be spinning sensational dance party grooves!!

Proceeds will go to Save Coney Island, a grassroots community organization committed to the preservation of the spirit of Coney Island through the revitalization of the Coney Island amusement district.

Here's the important info:
Unfortunately, the City's plan, as it currently stands, would be a disaster for Coney Island. It would permanently diminish the amusement district, introducing high-rises of up to 30 stories in its very heart, threatening historic structures and leaving only a narrow nine-acre strip for amusements. Land that is not zoned for amusements will be lost to amusements forever.
