The Atlanta Pride Committee announced Friday a slight tweak to its event schedule for Stonewall Week, a collection of events — some that benefit Pride and others that don’t — to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. It also gives us something to do next week while we wait for Pride, which shifted to late October so it can return to Piedmont Park.

Pride organizers said promoters Navigation ATL canceled its June 27 event at Jungle featuring DJ Hex Hector. In its place, Pride has pulled together its Official Stonewall After Party, or Flashback to Atlanta featuring DJ Don Bishop.

A closing party with DC Gunther was also announced for June 28 at Opera. The details:

June 27: Official Stonewall After Party
Flashback 2 Atlanta with DJ Don Bishop
Jungle, 10 p.m. to 3 a.m.

June 28: Stonewall Weekend Closing Party
Event with DJ Gunther
Opera, 6 p.m. to 12 a.m.
