NY Times Article Mentions L.A. Burner Decompression

A friend just sent me a link to an article in the New York Times about Burning Man, the BM regional network and the spreading of the culture.

New York Times article about Burning Man

The article gives nice mention of the Los Angeles BM Decompression Street Fair.

Also mentioned by name is one of L.A.’s newly installed regional director’s Patrick Shearn.

Give it a read if you’re into such things…

L.A. Burning Man Decompression, Vol. 4

So…. when has the threat of rain ever kept you from living a rich, full, extreme life? Bring it on! Wet or dry, I wouldn’t miss the L.A. Burning Man Decompression for anything! Well, maybe if lovely “Miss Burning Man” and her naughty little helpers made some delicious carnal promises that they intended to follow thru on, I might consider missing the event… but that ain’t gonna happen. Bone dry or dripping sky, this is going to be amazing!

WELCOME HOME! The thrill of the Playa rises again, this time on the streets of Los Angeles. This is an annual event to bring the spirit of Burning Man alive in our community.

Curious about Burning Man? Then the L.A. Burning Man Decompression Street Faire is the perfect way to get a taste of radical self expression, without having to drive 12 hours.

THIS IS AN ART FESTIVAL FEATURING:
THEME CAMPS
ART CARS
FIRE SCULPTURES
ART INSTALLATIONS
PAINTINGS
PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITS

7 STAGES PRESENTING:
VISUAL PERFORMERS
SPOKEN WORD POETRY
FIRE TROUPES
LIVE BANDS
DJ’S
PERFORMANCE ART
AERIALISTS
VJ’S

THIS IS A FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT.

THIS YEAR WE WILL HAVE SEVERAL FOOD OPTIONS, INCLUDING VEGETARIAN AND NON VEGETARIAN MEALS FROM MULTIPLE BURNER FRIENDLY VENDORS.

WE NEED YOU! So bring your good energy, costumes, art, music, and performances to the streets of downtown LA. Help us spread the word far and wide, feel free to forward this email to all your lists. Invite your friends that have never been to burning man. Stop telling them about the magic- instead show them the magic!

This year we are adding an extra block to the festival, so we have room for all the new theme camps, artists and art cars. We will be lowering the noise level of sound stages by doing 4 corner sound. We will have far more performer space this year, for diverse acts such as break dancers, stilt shows, fire troupes, and belly dancers.

We will be hosting a “green area” – a place where those interested in sustainability, permaculture and environmentalism will be able to see first hand new technology and listen to speakers in this earth friendly movement.

We will have more food and beverage vendors this year, so you can come early and stay all day.
We’ll make sure there will be food for all tastes – organic to carnivore.

Expect incredible art work, beautiful art cars, and delightful music – with as much diversity as burners can provide.

The L.A. Burning Man Decompression is an opportunity to dust off and share again Playa art, performances, theme camps, photos, videos and stories from Black Rock City; to re-connect with family and friends; and collaborate to create new art. It is, at its simplest, a reunion. But more significantly, it is a thoroughly participatory celebration of Burning Man art and community within our larger communities. And it is one of the more powerful ways many of us bring some of what is so inspiring about Burning Man to our cities and the public eye.

The street fair is also a fund raiser for the Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF) whose mission is to support and promote community-based interactive art through grants and exhibitions.

This year marks the 4th year for the street fair in Los Angeles and expects 5,000+ patrons joining costumed artists and participants with multiple stages, performances, theme camps and art installations.

Added to this year’s event will be an art gallery exhibit: “Burning Man, Awakening Inspiration” that will preview at the Gallery Row Art Walk Oct 12th.

For parking, may we suggest several options:

Radio Station Frequencies at Burning Man

For those of us who are unfortunate enough NOT to be heading out to Black Rock City yet, here is a last second posting of some useful Playa information.

At Burning Man, we have the opportunity to listen to the best FM radio available anywhere. You’ve never heard radio like this before (unless, of course, you have!). Many years ago, there was one radio station at Burning Man, but that has grown over the years. Now there are dozens.

Before you get into your overstuffed vehicle to head out to the Playa, do yourself a favor and visit the following website, which lists most (if not all) of the radio stations and programming. Pirate radio has never been better! Print out a copy and bring it with you:

Have a great Burn!

Colorful Maps of Black Rock City 2006

Here are a couple maps of Black Rock City: Burning Man 2006:

Here’s a lively map that you can bring with you to the Playa This may be the actual map we get when we arrive to the Playa since she designed the printed maps in previous years:

Here is a BRC 2006 map that can be downloaded in PDF format from the Burning man website:

Over the years, this being my 10th consecutive Burn, I always have a couple copies of these maps with me. I have found them to come in quite handy, making notes of where all my friends are located all over the Playa. Carry one with you, and if you find yourself in some far flung corner of the city, far away from your home camp, pull out your handy map and see who happens to be near by.
