Washington DC Counter Culture Festival

Having gone to college at Berkeley I’m into counterculture. I’m also into Webcomics. If I wasn’t also into Law School (and the accompanying homework) I’d be very excited about all the options available this Saturday in Clarendon.

First, a group of comic creators called DC Conspiracy is holding an event at Dr. Dremo (2001 Wilson Blvd.) this Saturday (Jan 27) from 4pm to midnight. At the same time, some group called “Art Outlet” is doing an arts and music festival (“Flux: An Art Sensory Overload“) at the abandoned Auto Body Repair Shop next to the Whole Foods a few blocks up Wilson (1415 Danville St). Supposedly you’ll be treated to, “paintings, sculpture, and similar visual art fare. You’ll also be treated to four bands, an interactive video/sound performance piece, fire juggling, aerial dance performance, and improv theatre. And if pleasing attendees aurally, visually and esthetically isn’t enough, there will be an art raffle and an art salon open to everyone for the duration. Save the relaxation for the wine and cheese set; this artistic excursion will overload your senses with the unlimited possibilities of artistic endeavor.”

I’m a big fan of recontexualizing unused industrial space for art. It kinda reminds me of the illegal raves that use to happen in random warehouses in San Francisco back in the day. There’s a suggested $5 donation, but that’s a small price to pay to encourage the arts, musicians, counterculture, and comics.
