This is a picture from last year’s Burning Girl festival. I dressed up in a cheongsam and shot a man in the head. Is complicated story. Move on.
THIS year’s Burning Girl is now over, and it was a great, hot, dirty, fun time. Our friends from Paper Moon built a MASSIVE shade structure/theme camp called “Hellbusters’ Voodoo Lounge” and it was one of a few social hubs of the whole event (the other being the stage area, and the saloon out in the willows). We had 10 adults and 15 kids in our party, and x2 that to occasionally x5 that hanging around the lounge all weekend. In addition to a blistering first set going VERY well and a second set going completely to shit (mainly because some drunken asshole jumping up on the empty drum set behind us and wrecking our songs), we had a lot of fun hosting Mojitos at 2pm every day, and a Top Hat and Tie Martini party. PLUS I also used our in-camp PA system for jams AND I also ran Action Castle, Action Castle II and Jungle adventure for 20-plus players during the weekend. Don’t know about Action Castle?

Saturday, we went up to Northern California and played a show in Westwood. It was a lot of fun. The fast stuff went down pretty well. It was “Paul Bunyan Days” in Westwood, lots of people in town, the bar was packed. I want to go back as soon as they’ll have us.
Next up, we’re doing a private event called “Pigpocalypse!” where I think there will be a roasted pig in the ground and five other bands… and then there’s more dates in August.
We’ll be in touch.
Meanwhile, listen to some songs while you’re here. CDs are still available at shows (though not online), or you can get digital hard blues goodness at itunes and cdbaby.com
