SAT OCT 4: 6th Annual LA Burning Man Decompression Music & Arts FestivalHello everyone, Happy October!
What a week – how about spending the weekend immersing yourself in art, music, culture and transformation? This first Saturday in October, downtown Los Angeles is hosting a truly unique, memorable event, in the first year at this beautiful new (GREEN) location! Come check out what Burning Man is all about ( 2009 theme: EVOLUTION – A TANGLED BANK )
My partner, DJ a)ex O. will be spinning an early funky house set at 2PM, and then I will be performing a hybrid acoustic/electronic set on the band stage at 4PM – featuring experimental arrangements and new music written after attending the 50,000 BM Festival in the Nevada desert at the end of August.
This event runs all day from NOON until MIDNIGHT . . .ENJOY!

VOLUNTEER! We need you! Email volunteers@...
Have time Friday, the day of the event or Sunday? Let us know!
We are a No Glow Stick event. In keeping with our green initiatives, we ask that you leave the glow sticks at home.
They only fill up our landfills with materials that never decompose. Instead, bring reusable lights, like LEDs or EL Wire.
We are very grateful to the State Park Rangers for allowing us to use their wonderful location.
When you see them around, tell them thanks! They have been truly great to work with.
