NIMBY, the Bay Area DIY industrial art space whose motto – “Refuse to live vicariously” – is a perfect rallying cry for the Maker Revolution, is holding a fundraiser on October 16th. NIMBY parties are notorious for their boundless eclecticism, packing their vast space with live performers, interactive fire art, giant nose-picking machines and an array of other, far less-easily described entertainments and divertissements.
Infamous brass-kickers Extra Action Marching Band are headlining a lineup that includes bicycle dance troupe, The Dérailleurs, punk rock cabaret The Can Cannibals, the clown funk of Gooferman, and many other uniquely Bay Area performers.
Many NIMBY-created artworks will be on display, including Maria Del Camino, a 1959 El Camino adapted to run on tank treads, and Interpretive Arson’s 2piR, a participant-controllable ring of flame effects, freshly returned from a triumphant run at Denmark’s Smukfest.
A weird & wild time is guaranteed for all!
