Not that KCAC Lives! endorses this kind of thing, but today marks a "counterculture holiday" of sorts. See the Wikipedia entry for explanation and history.
Locally (in Tempe, of course), The Organic Glass Smoke Shop (SW corner of Dobson and Guadalupe) is holding the “On It” Music Fest starting at 11 am, and at 7 pm, The Subculture Café (227 E. Baseline) is holding its own celebration.
For celebrants who can’t get off the couch, cable's G4 channel is planning an evening-long celebration that goes to Amsterdam, where the coffeeshops sell bags of grounds you won't find at Starbucks, and tonight at 9 they'll be airing (in its entirety, they say) "The Big Lebowski," starring Jeff Bridges in his immortal role as The Dude, apparently the poster boy for this particular holiday. Abide!
