Lightning in a Bottle Returns – Exceptional Art and Music Festival

Only a Southern California dance, art, and music festival can feature Daedelus and downward facing dog, but that’s exactly what the fifth annual Do LaB Lightning in a Bottle art and music festival will offer when it takes over 100+ acres of Irvine, California’s Oak Canyon Ranch over Memorial Day weekend.

The four-day, three-night festival bills itself as “equal parts music, art and green workshops.” Accordingly, those drawn to bone-crunching bass and funky rhythms can choose from over 90 artists including Booka Shade, The Album Leaf, The Glitch Mob, The Very Best, Daedelus, Daddy Kev, and Nosaj Thing.

Lightning in a Bottle will also feature a set from Krystee, the winner of the festival’s mix-tape contest that found DJ’s from across America looking for a chance to perform by submitting tapes using only Lightning in a Bottle acts.

Attendees can also explore other options, via green-living workshops that offer “practical, do-it-yourself lessons on creating a healthy, low-cost, sustainable lifestyle.” The workshops included “Small Space Container Gardening,” “How to Make Raw Chocolate” and “Growing & Using Medicinal Herbs.” Those looking to loosen up after three nights in a sleeping bag can increase their elasticity via an array of yoga courses taking place throughout the day.

An Art Festival as Much as a Music Festival

The artistically inclined may find solace in the festival’s art gallery, installation pieces, or its Lightning in a Paintcan Project, during which local artists will transform over-sized mural panels into paintings using recycled paint. The finished pieces will be sold in a silent auction, with proceeds going to Sonic Muze, a nonprofit group that provides underfunded schools with music instruments and art supplies. With three-day passes available for $190 (including camping), the festival figures to bring enough stimulation so that everyone will need to say Savasana by Monday night.

Lucent L’amour presented by The Do LaB

The Do Lab presents the 5th Annual Lucent L'amour on Sat. Feb 13, 1020 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

What Is Lucent L’amour?

Lucent L’amour is a festival that embraces the visual, architectural and performance arts as passionately as it does music and dance.

It is the transformation of one night into a spontaneous combustion of love and mayhem.

It is a creative synthesis of dance and electronic music, vaudeville performance, and street art into one multi-sensory experience.

To create the fifth annual Lucent L’amour, The Do LaB is bringing you two stages of music and performance, a cutting edge art gallery, live painters, larger-than-life interactive sculptures, and elaborate stage and environment designs from the west coasts leading artists.

“Buy the ticket, take the ride.”

Happy Birthday Jimmy Page

ZOSO Jimmy PageThis is a day deserving of special mention. My long-time guitar hero Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin’s inimitable guitar wizard, celebrates his birthday on January 9th.

Jimmy Page magickally helped me to stay connected to the guitar. This is true even through the years that my own guitars sat alone, seemingly forgotten, rarely played… though in recent years they have been getting quite a bit of play. I’ve been intently learning some new tunes (check out Vanderbilly.com), the latest of which are “The Rain Song” and “Bron-yr-Aur“. Both of which are beautiful guitar ditties any guitarist would joy to diddle with!

It was also Jimmy Page that clued me into the Law of Thelema when I was a teenager. And, though he’s long since dead, I still say: Long Live the Great Beast Aleister Crowley! For these things and more, I am grateful that Sir James Patrick Page was born on January 9th, 1944.

Bring the Burning Opera Roadshow to L.A.

Burning Opera - How to Survive the Apocalypse

Burning Opera Roadshow Background: As some of you might know, Twan (former L.A. BM Regional director) used to produce longtime SF artist Pepe Ozan’s Burning Man Opera’s from 1998-2002. The director and co-writer of those operas, Christopher Fulling, is now directing an amazing project called “How to Survive the Apocalypse: A Burning Opera”. Twan was originally offered the producer position for this project, but had to decline due to the fact that he is out of the country and will be until well after Burning Man this year. As such, he would not have been able to perform his duties to the best of his abilities.

“How to Survive the Apocalypse: A Burning Opera” is about the history of Burning Man. It gained such a positive response from the honchos at Burning Man headquarters, that a few of them are actually performing in the show, not the least of which is ActionGrl (Andie Grace) and Michael Mikel (aka: Danger Ranger, one of the principals of Burning Man Org).

The “Apocalypse” team has been pushing hard to get the show on the road, beginning after Burning Man this year. This past January, they did a test run of a scaled-down version of the show in SF, which was supposed to be a one-off, but due to overwhelming demand, 6 shows were added, all of which sold out immediately. Read a review of those shows here.

The “Apocalypse” team has managed to get six shows set up in Teatro ZinZanni???s famed spiegeltent on the San Francisco waterfront Oct 5-7 and 12-14. They are desperately trying to bring the show to L.A., but they have not been able to find a producer-type to help them secure a location and work with logistics. It would be a terrible shame for this show not to come to L.A., especially given the inspiring, awesome, and huge creative community we have here.

Please don’t the this opportunity slip by! The Los Angeles community deserves to be represented in this project. It could turn into a longer-running tour, depending upon the success of these first shows. In other words, it could be a career booster. And a money maker…

Below is a blurb from the show’s technical director, Cookie, who has a rich history working with Cirque du Soleil, and the show’s executive producer Dana Harrison, who had worked in upper management in the Burning Man org for a decade.

The Show (and L.A. wants/needs):

How to Survive the Apocalypse – a burning opera (http://www.burningopera.com) – is a musical freak fable that combines rock opera, vaudeville, and a Dionysian revival show into a Hair for the new millennium. The show will debut in San Francisco in early October, but is considering an LA engagement this fall if the stars align properly. The specific stars needed are a local LA producer(s) to handle production and promotions as well as alternate venue possibilities.

The producer(s) role(s) is some combination of organization, logistics and venue management as well as marketing and promotions. Must be well connected, a total self starter and intimately in tune with the local burning man scene.

The venue needs to be in the range of 400-600 seats and be flexible enough to accommodate a thrust or in the round style of play as well as all the necessary parking, food and beverage etc for a full blown night at the opera temporary autonomous zone extravaganza.

The producer role is key although it could be a combination of the right people if there was one in charge of it all. Promotions wizard might be different from good at managing a venue wizard.
