NSFW – Festival Fever: Capital Pride Festival @ Washington Park, 6/10/12

Capital Pride Week wraps on Sunday (June 10) with the big shebang – the always outrageous the Capital Pride Parade (which kicks off in the north end of Washington Park at 12noon) followed by the Capital Pride Festival from 1-5pm in Washington Park.

Headlining the fest is Kimberley Locke, the “American Idol” alum (second runner-up in 2003), who has gone on to rack up four No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Dance Music charts and star in VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club.” She’s currently touring in support of her latest EP, “Four for the Floor,” featuring the single “Finally Free.”

Also featured at Pride Fest will be Neon Hitch, the British singer-songwriter-dance floor fave who is poised for a major breakthrough this year. She’s featured on the Gym Class Heroes’ hit “Ass Back Home”; her own controversial, super-sexy single, “Fuck U Betta,” is burnin’ up on YouTube; and she’s about to release her debut album on Warner Bros., “Beg, Borrow and Steal,” later this month.

Arounding out Sunday’s free fest will be a pair of homegrown Nippertown faves, the 7th Squeeze and Erin Harkes.
