Layabout Tribe 1965-present
*See also: Layabouts on MySpace and Layabout website

 Possibly the oldest intact tribe, some of its members having been around the corridor since the early 60's. I chose the name 'Layabout Tribe' to describe a close affiliation of friends who would like to see authoritarian institutions to just go away and who at least subscribe to the notion of eschewing working for the Man - hence the name 'Layabout Tribe'.  Not so incidentally, there is a local band of the same name. Many of the names below appear in other tribes, again an example of the amazing cross-pollination of the Cass Corridor. This tribe also includes the Tribes and sub-tribes: Fifth Estate, Easy Space, Duck Club, Freezer Theater.
