FDR – 4TH of JULY – 2019

“The annual 4th of July celebration at FDR isn’t a celebration of the American government, but rather of We The People. We, who have fought, bled for and conquered this beautiful patch of no mans land tucked away in the shadows under I-95. Every year we gather in a disgusting display of raw passion, lawlessness and anarchy. Living as wildly and dangerously as we so choose inside the confines of this concrete atrocity that we have all bound together to help create, throughout these years and generations, is the greatest display of what it truly means to be free. It is the physical embodiment of a self regulated, community driven, counter culture culmination of horrifying dreams. If you can learn to thrive through the mortar explosions, bottle rocket crossfire, and screaming barbarians then you just might find yourself in a punk rock partier’s paradise. Let it be known to the weak willed and faint hearted that once the bands start playing and the bombs start bursting the attitude is nothing short of, “get with it, or get hit with it”. If you can live well within the balance of love and aggression then come one, come all. Long live the home of the brave. Long live FDR!” – Evan Breder (@lankybull)
