The tradition violators at 901 North Fifth Street seem to be getting quite conventional these days. That's because this weekend, one of downtown's unofficial alternative thinking-and-doing home bases, Conspire, celebrates three years of existence in the same space in the Roosevelt Row 'hood.
Full-blown identity crisis?
Oh, we're just kidding. (No, seriously. No need to use this post as the-man-is-beating-us-down-once-again bulletin board material.)
In actuality, Conspire's Three-Year Anniversary won't be a typical birthday shebang.
(more details about the shindig after the jump)
For one, the party lasts for 36 straight hours straight from noon Saturday to midnight Monday. And for two, there will alt-activities, such as dream zones and "visual funk," as well as other tomfoolery and random on-the-spot happenings.
For those folks who haven't seen the reconfigured space since John Sagasta moved the coffee portion across the street to Jobot, feel free to do so for as long as you want - people are encouraged to bring tents and sleeping bags -- according to the event flier, "You never have to leave."
