New York City
The Sherman Zwicker first met the Atlantic just after we joined The War — a sailing vessel stop-gap in the transition to diesel power — fishing and trading from Nova Scotia to the Caribbean and back for over a quarter century. The last of his fleet, the SZ is now docked in Tribeca at Hudson River Park’s Pier 25; a 142-foot curio rescued with the help of the not-for-profit Maritime Foundation to become the seasonal oyster bar and maritime exhibit Grand Banks. 

Atelier Ace Director Eric Cheong and Ace familiar Johnne Eschleman left their fastidious fingerprints all over this one, so may God bless ol’ Sherm and all who dine upon him. 
Grand Banks sets figurative sail just in time for Fourth of July weekend.

Portland, OR
Portland’s annual Quiet Music Festival, Chris Johanson’s sleepy little lamb of a program, rears its downy head once again this weekend at Disjecta.
"We’ve got an even softer floor this year so we anticipate more sleeping," says Chris. "This is a great place to come if you’ve ever wanted to sleep with a group of people.”
This year’s list of light-hitters includes Marisa Anderson, American Music Club’s Mark Eitzel, Neal Morgan in a collaborative set with Pulse Emitter, The Mekons’ Sally Timms and many more. Let ‘em lull you.

San Francisco, London and everywhere.  
After some years of gay-ins early in ’70s Golden Gate Park, on this day in 1978, San Francisco Pride pushed through Market as Gay Freedom Day. That day was the coming out of the Gilbert Baker-designed Rainbow Flag that has become a banner for the rights of everyone. 
Tomorrow in Shoreditch at Ace Hotel we’re rainbow flagging it up with JD Samson and our collaborative Pride party Everyone. Everyone’s invited. We’ve got a Pride playlist to blast on the ‘phones as you get ready for tonight. It’s the second part of our series of Pride celebrations with JD at Ace outposts in LA, London, New York, and Palm Springs. (And number three Pride is this weekend in New York City.)
You can dance, you can sing, you can make a team of hi-fivers and hi-five everyone you see if you want. You can be free and be together with free people. As part of the party, JD created a hand-screened shirt and a poster that you can pick up to pack pride anywhere you wear clothes or have walls. And proceeds go to help good people, too.

Portland + Los Angeles
The American poet Norman Dubie says that what gives poetry so much freedom is that no one gets rich off writing it. Passion, and expressive language, drive poems into the world. 
Poetry is unique among artforms because it uses as its medium the building blocks of all communication, and, more or less, the building blocks of thought: language. Poetry uses language to communicate something that is beyond language, which is weird and causes things to be at once both what they are and so very much more than they are. 
At its most minimal, language speaks to us on two levels: it communicates raw info and it communicates contextual feelings and directions about that info. In the 1960s and ’70s, Aram Saroyan was mining this linguistic landscape to much notoriety — and infamy. His poem, “lighght,” exploded the idea of what a poem even is. 
And as the tattoo here illuminates, it’s still exploding ideas right down to the skin. This left hand belongs to another poet, Zachary Schomburg, who writes notes on his hands when he’s not collaborating and touring with musicians and filmmakers and making the sincerest surrealist books since sliced pages.
