Re: Simple Shower Evap?

Although it's not an EVAP option, it's SO easy to find old grey water tanks and barrels free or really cheap on craigslist. Just pay $60 to get it pumped out at the end. It saves the headache.

Our objective is to recreate a 16th century drum-crafters' guild, offer tours of our space, send people on guided soundwalks, and to gift drums in the desert! Find us in the Piazza! Thi...

Camp ThumpThump seeks Rhythmic Creatives!

Hi everyone! We're an ART SUPPORT CAMP seeking a few like-minded folks who may need a home base to pitch a tent! Our 2016 Piazza installation, I Tamburisti di FIREnze , will be a recreation of a 16th century drum-making guild at the foot of The Man. You know that phrase, "It takes a village?" Our pr...

Re: Fundraiser: Build a DRUM! With Dr. Thelonious D. RUM!

Bumping this up --- we've got 8 days left of our fundraiser and a lot of money to find under the covers. We'd appreciate the help if you can spare a few wooden nickels! :) SO FAR: We've built you a Romanian Vardo (full size functional gypsy wagon made out of the base of an Amish buggy)! We've got 25...

Re: Fundraiser: Build a DRUM! With Dr. Thelonious D. RUM!

Yes indeed. While you kid, we're working on something equally as cool - a right-on-rhythmic-party-wall, if you will. :) Maybe next year our project will be a giant communal drum installation in deep playa. Would need to figure out how to keep the skin from getting sunburned, though. Poor lil goat. 8...

Re: Fundraiser: Build a DRUM! With Dr. Thelonious D. RUM!

Thanks, trilo! We had such a blast last year - stop by and say hello this time around! We spent all week cutting the top off an Amish wagon and decorating it a la Carnival of Mirrors theme -- really looking forward to our Midway booth and collaborating with our awesome Carny neighbors! :-)

Fundraiser: Build a DRUM! With Dr. Thelonious D. RUM!

BM Photo.JPG Invited back to the celebrations at the foot of the MAN, once AGAIN we're traversing to the playa (this time as part of the MIDWAY) to gift over 100 DJEMBES, ASHIKOS and DOUMBEKS! Walk across our dusty threshold. Perhaps you encounter a bearded lady, a peanut vendor, a ring mistress, t...

Re: Easy sewing for playa wears for the everyday fat girl

Love this thread. I started to create a plus-size festival/event fashion blog a while back but let it fade out because I didn't seem to have much interest - okay maybe I just had ADD and forgot. Anyway... as a super plus size lady burner, I'd also love to be part of the photo project, and I agree th...

Re: Cot, Sleeping bag or air mattress?

My partner and I each have a cot. We place them side by side and use a fitted sheet to kind of bind them together into a full size cot. Then we top them with sleeping bags, and top the sleeping bags with blankets/sheets. When we leave the tent, we cover the cots with a plastic dropcloth to decrease ...

Re: Check out my sweet playa bed

SWEET. If I thought I could make one of these and fit it on top of my crappy Kia Sportage I'd totally follow in your footsteps. We've got folding camp cots we picked up on craigslist, which rock my socks but you TOTALLY win for the DIY & the underneath storage... :D

Hi everyone! My partner and I are heading to BRC for the first time this year. We are part of the "Membranes of Marrakesh," a drum-gifting bit of sonic craziness that was accepted into this year's Souk. SOOOO not only is it our first year at BM, but we're also hyper-participating and VERY excited. W...
