LA BURNING MAN ANNOUNCE / NEWSLETTER 3/1/16-ish

======== LA BURNING MAN ANNOUNCE 3/1/16 =========

INTRODUCTION

Happy… Thursday? Yep, I guess it’s Thursday now – by a few minutes anyway – and I’m finally getting the time to finish this here newsletter. Please forgive my tardiness, it’s been a CRAZY week, I mean month, I mean year! Whew I’m tired just thinking about the next few weeks, but there’s a carrot at the end of the rainbow…. BEquinox! Even though I only get to go for the weekend, I get to go this year (work kept me away last year, dadgummit!).

Speaking of BEquinox…  

  • BEquinox tickets went on sale last week, and sold out! But never fear, just like in the dust, there’s an OMG sale: The OMG ticket sale opens on March 9 at 6pm, and you can purchase two tickets via the link in the BEquinox listing below.
  • BEquinox Art, DMV, and WWW guide submissions end March 4, so get to it!

In other news:

  • As I mentioned last week, the Downtown Burner Meetup is moving dates – for March it will be on Saturday night, March 12 – they want to see if there will be an even bigger turn-out if everyone isn’t having to rush from work to get there. If you haven't made it to the Downtown meetup, it's in a private loft so is a great way to meet people and have a friendly, chill evening getting to know other burners, meeting people to help with your projects (or projects to help with!) and more. Thank you Kara and Cupcake for being such great hosts!
  • Are you on the north side and craving some playa dust? Come on down to the Northside Burner Meetup March 6!

🙂 Plaid & Gloria “Good Vibrations”

>>>>~~~~ THE RAD TEAM BEHIND ALKE’ THE WHITE DRAGON SEEKS CONTRIBUTORS FOR THEIR NEXT PROJECT~~~~<<<<

~originally posted in the LA Burners Facebook group, and was too awesome not to share - Plaid~

 

Hello dear Family.

 

The time has come again, the time to begin working on our installation for this year. Our Team brought Alke' the white dragon last year. This year we are creating the Tower of Ascension.

 

The Tower has been designed to create an experience of ascension, a 'rising of energy' for those who interact with it. The more people who interact with it the higher this energy rises. With enough people the energy will rise up to the top of the Tower and be shot forth as a burst of flame.

 

This posting is to let you know of something amazing being born in 'our' backyard. Our team is dedicated to co-creating this project, ideas, labor and funds are all welcome. If you have a positive attitude, like to smile, roll up your sleeves and get to work, and would like to be a part of something special, please introduce yourself and we can figure out how you can add your signature to this piece.

 

A huge part of this project is creating community through collaboration. At this point we have plenty of hands to create the project, my thought is now to turn the piece from a simple art project into a lightning rod of creation. To use it as a focus to have other things happen, performance, dance, DJ's, to use it as a medium for expression and giving.

 

Thanks and we look forward to speaking with you!

>>>>~~~~"PLAYA LUNG" RESEARCH SURVEY~~~~<<<<

~from the JRS~

 

Are Burners taking proper precautions to protect themselves from any unknown effects of inhaling playa dust?

 

That is the question a research team of physicians affiliated with the University of California San Francisco is hoping to answer. The phenomenon colloquially dubbed “playa lung" is going under the microscope, and you are invited to participate.

 

If you have experienced respiratory breathing problems either during or immediately after being in the Black Rock Desert, please consider taking this five-minute, anonymous survey:

Take the survey here: http://tiny.cc/playalung

 

The researchers have particular clinical training and expertise in wilderness medicine, and they are looking to understand "playa lung" symptoms, time-course, and risk factors.

 

Results of this study could lead to improved health and safety recommendations for all future Burners, including you! While Burning Man is not affiliated with this study, we are happy to share this information with the community. All surveys will remain anonymous and no one will be able to link your answers back to you.

 

 

 

 

>>>>~~~~NEW INTERNATIONAL ART PROJECT - WE ARE FROM DUST~~~~<<<<

>>>>~~~~ORANGE COUNTY FLOW SYNDICATE'S ON-CALL FIRE SUPPORT TEAM SEEKS DONATIONS TO GROW~~~~<<<<

~What a great team, and a great cause. - Plaid~

 

The Orange County Flow Syndicate's On-Call Fire Support team  is growing into the premiere event fire safety organization in the country.

 

The OCFS provides UFA trained fire safety crews to any event, club or stage show wishing to ensure competent and reliable safety staff that will do the job right and keep your events safe and problem free.

 

We need your help to grow. OCFS started out as a Flow Arts support team providing fire safety to any and all event wanting to host a free flow arts area where people could come spin fire in a safe sane environment. Having a flow arts area has shown to enhance the event adding to the flavor and appeal.

 

The Flagship model for what our goals are Is the Hades Camp at Wasteland Weekend In California City CA. Not only do we provide the fire safety for the stage and effects but we also provide an open and fully staffed fire art's area so all fire dancers and flow artists can come and show off their skills and art form with other attendees at the events creating a unique interactive aspect to the event and adding to the overall entertainment value of the event. www.wastelandweekend.com

 

This funds raised here will help to purchase all of the safety equipment we will need to get us up and running. From fire extinguishers to emergency first aid and burn trauma and poison control kits, duvetyne fabric, staff armbands and much more.

All of us at The OCFS are passionate and dedicated to spreading the fire arts to the world and teaching them how to keeping everyone safe.

>>>>~~~~HELP SPACESHIP DIONYSUS ART CAR VOYAGE TO BEQUINOX 2016~~~~<<<<

 

Hello there future citizens of BEquinox and other art car lovers!

 

We want to take you on a space flight on our spaceship art car Dionysus by day and by night....

 

However, the real situation is we are willing to pay for more lighting, gas, etc etc. etc. and gift that to you all...but it's the transportation of the thing to and from the event that is really going to cost us way more than we can possibly rationalize spending to gift rides for. So, we thought perhaps that you all might help us out...and perhaps little by little we can collectively get this thing to BEquinox 2016!? We originally created this crazy ship with BEquinox 2015 in mind, but we didn't finish it in time. Anyway, taking it to Burning Man 2015 was a huge success and very rewarding but it also cost us a lot of equipment including a running truck. One way or another if we get enough money from this fundraiser we ARE BRINGING it to all of you and we cannot wait!! Won't you please help?? 🙂 Space fairies bless you.

The Syrup Loft

Downtown LA

 

Europe’s favorite live electroswingin' Sicilians, The SwinGrowers, are coming to TrapezeLA! Fresh off the heels of their continental collaboration with Caravan Palace, Swingrowers are a wild quintet from Palermo (Sicily) known for their mischievous mixture of crushed velvet vocals and nasty electro-manouche swing. Flanked by DJs The Gentlemen Callers of Los Angeles, The Klown, and Daniellow, and a car bomb of world-class bodacious burlesquerotti, Festa Di Volo is your stylish one night stand filled with soaring sounds and searing seduction.

 

Equal parts Weimar cabaret and wild speakeasy rave, Trapeze lures a bevy of underworld flappers, vamps, vipers, and villains to a bass-fueled night of jazz-age abandon.

~Because, flowers!~

 

March 4-6

Death Valley National Park

Furnace Creek, CA 92328

 

Death Valley is having a rare super bloom with millions of wild flowers blooming all over!!! Lets go frolic in the fields of yellow happiness (figuratively, be gentle to the wild flowers please). Bring your cameras!

 

Please make sure when you visit the park you don't hike on protected sites and trample on the plants. Also, I was told by a ranger that you are not allowed to pick the flower and take them with you. It's not allowed. I must remind everyone to clean up after themselves and not to trash the park.

 

Also, if you can please car pool. This event has grown so big I can't imagine how the impact of people and cars will have on the environment. Please please take care of our National Parks!

 

Thanks!

>>>>~~~~LA BURNER MEETUP : WEST SIDE : STILL ON HOLD~~~~<<<<

 

The west side meetup is still on hold until we verify a new location – keep your eye on this newsletter for updates!

 

 

 

 

 

>>>>~~~~LA BURNER MEETUP : DOWNTOWN~~~~<<<<

~a monthly chance to bring the LA burner community together~

 

Come one, come all to our LA Burning Man meet ups EVERY month! It's our chance to get to know fellow LA burners, no dust required!

 

TRYING SOMETHING NEW!

 

This month, we’re going to shake it up a bit and have the meetup on a Saturday night, as we’ve gotten lots of comments that getting to the meetup Friday night can be hard. The first Saturday is Trapeze! (and you won’t want to miss that!) so we’re moving the meetup to the second Saturday in March!

 

Next Meetup : Saturday, March 12

8pm till done

 

(Keep an eye out here and on the http://www.laburningman.com/events/ calendar for next month’s meet up date!

 

Location: Theory Labs @ the Brewery near Main & 5

(email plaid@laburningman.com or join the Theory Labs FB group for the actual address)

 

Find out details here:

https://www.facebook.com/inTheoryLabs

 

Theory is a loft, not a bar, so it’s easy to meet people.

 

It’s a great place to find stuff to do or find people to help you with stuff.

 

It’s run by just-married Kara and Cupcake, we’re so happy for them!

 

Think of it as a face-to-face version of the new Spark area of the Burning Man Website (spark.burningman.org). So if you have a camp in need of members or a project in need

of workers, this is a great meetup for you.

>>>>~~~~VEGAN STREET FAIR - YUM!~~~~<<<<

~Of course there are burners behind this, why am I not surprised? - Plaid~

 

Sunday March 20

11a - 7p

 

11223 Chandler Blvd,

North Hollywood, CA 91601

 

We are BACK for round 2 in North Hollywood and cannot wait to do VSF all over again!

 

3 times bigger than last year, you guys!!!! WOO!

 

Vegan Street Fair is an annual vegan food celebration where local vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants and vendors come together to serve you bite-size portions of vegan eats all in one place.

The best part? All bite-size portions are $3 max and entrance is FREE.

 

At VSF, you get to nosh on as many local eats as your heart desires (and your belly can hold) for street fair prices. So instead of buying a $10 plate of vegan nachos and sitting out the rest of the amazing food experiences, you get bites from one vendor, move on to the next, and enjoy all of your city's BEST vegan eats without getting full for a fraction of the price of a regular meal.

 

VSF is the true vegan foodie dream- EAT ALL THE VEGAN THINGS.

 

This event is open to the public. All ages + vegans and non-vegans are welcome.

>>>>~~~~BRIDES OF MARCH + BUNNY HOP~~~~<<<<

 

Saturday, March 26

11a-6p

 

It’s Your Special Day, again! Come dressed in your fabulous bridal finest, OR a bunny suit, and help us bring more Cacophony to LA!!!

 

Brought to you by the crazy folks who also “organize” LA Santacon and the Caveman Picnic, among other Cacophonist events!

 

This is going to be a metro-oriented year, so plan to wear comfy shoes and to have to carry all your “accessories”. Having a day-pass already on your TAP card is a good call, as is bringing cash to help settle up tabs at the various establishments we’ll be hitting.

Invite your friends! Post pictures of past years here! And remember, it’s BYOB… Bring Your Own Bouquet!!!

>>>>~~~~BIL LA 2016 - THE UNCONFERENCE FOR THE REST OF US~~~~<<<<

10am-5pm: Friday set up at Cross Campus

8pm: Friday night meet and greet

(location TBD)

800 Wilshire Blvd,

Los Angeles, California 90017

 

Welcome to BIL LA 2016: BILding a Better Future!

 

BIL is a crowdsourced unconference that has been around since 2008. We have grown, we have expanded, we have made lifetime friends and look forward to making more. Each BIL is uniquely compiled by those who participate!

 

Unlike an event in which a small group curates and disseminates content to give to you, BIL exists "asking YOU" to come create what we are as well as what you believe is worth sharing with each other and with the world.

 

It exists so that each of us experience having a "say" in what gets created. We invite you to come!! Visit our event website to partake in BILding a Better Future!

Buy your tickets, Sign up to speak, Volunteer, Sponsor, Etc...

BIL:Los Angeles 2016

 

While everyone can post to this "event" page, we are doing most of our crowdsourcing and BILding on the FB Group page called BIL L.A. Group.

 

Please join us there! https://www.facebook.com/groups/BILLAgroup/
