Precompression at NIMBY in Oakland, CA

The first comment we heard on Sunday morning after Precompression was:

That was the best party I have ever been to. It was gorgeous, there was lots of room and everybody was friendly and having a great time.

This year we did something a little different. This event was held at one of our community’s best-loved art making spaces, NIMBY, to support local arts and artists! It was a multi-environment, indoor-outdoor, grease-monkey-to-glam, big art, downhome throwdown of artistically epic proportions! Burning Man and Burners—from old school to new—congregated at NIMBY.

There were Mutant Vehicles and art being created for

There was live glassworking by NIMBY artists, Maria Del Camino, Opulent Temple, Sugar Cubes, Alex Nolan’s Throw Bot, Grahmahs House, and about a gazillion more Bay Area artist groups showcasing their work and joining forces in support of this memorable night. There were places to gather, various dance floors, multiple live performance stages, and a great diversity of attendees.
