Rubulad, the Brooklyn artist collective known for their huge, all-night parties, is moving out of the warehouse on Flushing Avenue and Taaffe Place that they have occupied for six years, according to the Brooklyn Paper.
The Paper says that owners Chris Thomas and Sari Rubinstein could have put in $40,000 to fix up the building, but that complaints from their Hasidic neighbors made them reconsider staying.
Last year, city inspectors shut down the building and evicted its tenants due to fire code violations.
Rubulad has a Kickstarter page, where they are soliciting donations to help with the costs involved in moving the huge space. It is set to end tomorrow at 3 p.m., but as of today, they are over $26,500. Their goal is $35,000, and if they don’t have that much pledged by tomorrow, they must refund all donations, according to Kickstarter’s guidelines.
Donors who pledge at least $20 to the cause will receive a ticket to the official Santacon 2011 Afterparty, to be held at 338 Flushing Ave. on Saturday night at 10 p.m.
