May 24th-28th, 2012
These past two weekends rocked being at the epicenter of this transformational festival movement happening around us. It is so inspiring and heightens our awareness being surrounded by so many creative, conscious people . The Do Lab and their crew continually exceed our expectations of what type of space should be created at a festival.
The plethora of live painting, art, and ear candy like EOTO, Shpongle, Lafa Taylor, Big Gigantic at their events is overwhelming. It was great to see Gary Stadler’s Nexicon Portal again. It was one of our favorite Burning Man installations last year. Check out Michael Heitebrake’s pieces he painted live and other pieces emerging from this outerdimensional party at http://www.doartfoundation.org/initiatives/community-outreach-programs/lightning-paintcan/
After chilling by the pool in Palm Springs we are now driving the 1977 time traveling GMC across the country to Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee. Come find us in Centeroo if you are there! See ya out and about!
Awesome to witness our community bonding together to rebuild stages, structures and spirits after 70 mph winds wrecked havoc on the site early in the week. The dust storm Tuesday prompted us to debut our new intergalactic mobile showroom. Two years ago Mark began working on this concept by reserecting a 1977 GMC Palm Beach motorhome, yes same model as the one in the Bill Murray movie Stripes. It will be fun to watch as his baby evolves and continues getting pimped! We need help coming up with the perfect name, help us with ideas, right now we like Starship MoonWalker.
Big thanks goes out to all the volunteers and staff, especially Cara the vendor coordinator for doing a great job and making the event such a pleasurable, positive experience for us. Being surrounded by amazing friends, the best beats…Little Dragon, Barisone, Gaudi to name a couple favorites, and experiencing the solar eclipse in such a powerful place was by far the best way to kick off our largest Illuminated Summer Tour yet.
<3 Much Love <3
