2nd Floor Rear officially wrapped as of noon Sunday, and the festival seems to have been a smashing success. A giant thanks to all contributers, hosters, helpers, and funders! Please see the collaborators page for a complete list of people to whom kudos are due. Also, keep an eye on this blog for soon-to-come festival photos, afterthoughts, and more.

Welcome to 2nd Floor Rear 2012!

2nd Floor Rear is happening TOMORROW! It goes without saying that we are excited. Our Kickstarter campaign exceeded its goal. I (festival producer) am putting together festival materials for participants, frantically writing emails, blog posts, and trying to find a photographer, all while watching the sun come up. We finalized and printed the festival map yesterday. It looks like this:

Printed maps will be available at all indoor spaces. You can also download a schedule of events: ghid 24h spate and a map: ghid 24h fata beforehand. With the exception of some outdoor installations that can only be located by happenstance, all sites will be marked with a dash of sparkly blue ribbon and perhaps some blue chalk markings, so be on the lookout for those things as you search out some of the more off-the-beaten path sites.

Some last-minute SOS’s: we are still looking for a photographer who can meet with the festival producer tonight and commit to documenting the festival from around 11am to midnight on Saturday (you will be paid!) and the itsa_pony! PJ Brunchfast needs some help running errands before/during Sunday morning, so if you would like to pitch in, or are interested in taking photos for money, please email itsa_pony! projects at

See you Saturday!

Ok, so the real post is coming soon…

…in, like, a few hours. After I take a quick disco nap, or have some rather truncated sleep. In the meantime, the Kickstarter campaign was a success!!! Bright and early tomorrow I plan to post a shiny new post for you complete with updates, tips, a downloadable festival map/schedule of events, and more. In the meantime, tell all your friends about Saturday and remind yourself to check back in tomorrow for more.
