At Matthew Presidente's Groove Box show - tonight's theme being the Pride Hangover Show, we dedicated two songs to the victims and the people affected and injured in these bashings [including our band which was involved as a witness to the East Side Pride bashing]. Creep - for those who feel alienated by violence and oppression and Hedwig's Midnight Radio - how we rise above oppression and lift up our hands.
Dedication tunes performed at Numbers Caberet Post Pride Show: [with intro dedication comments by Stephen Emery]
1. Creep - Radiohead Cover by Stephen Emery, Matthew Presidente, Hazen Rice
2. Midnight Radio - Hedwig Cover by Matthew Presidente, Stephen Emery

Two people remain in hospital with serious injuries. Word on the street is that this 2nd attack was not a bashing but a psycho mental patient.
Either way, a great 30th Pride has been marred somewhat and we Numbers performers and those of us at radiogay.ca hope that the victims' psychological and physical recoveries are swift and thorough.
