The Infest warehouse in downtown is our new Wednesday night polo spot. We’ve been playing here on Thursdays since December and now we’re moving it to Wednesdays, so take note.
The warehouse is an awesome community space and we are 1000% grateful that they’ve been so welcoming to us. The Infest crew is a great group of people to boot, and they are always working on lots of different events and projects from art shows to punk shows to spoken word to womens’ dodgeball and firedancers. Outside they have a fantastic garden, though we haven’t been able to see much of it since we are there at night – but take a moment and check it out; they are growing all sorts of things and using stacked car tires to house potato plants.
As a community space, they subsist on donations, so any time you are here, to play polo or otherwise, dig into your pockets and give what you can to keep the Infest alive. Also, please be kind and gentle to all the doggies running around.
For photos of bike polo at Infest, check out Mikey Walley’s website – he’s come out a few times to get some snaps of the games in color and black & white; including this fantastic shot of Eli & Jinxy’s joust standoff.
You can also find detailed shots of Joker’s Surly 1×1 and some pix from the games in NELA too. Thanks Mikey!
