First: playa dust and electronic equipment are adversaries. Never forget that. Along with all your other supplies that you have to clean upon return to the default world, do you want to disassemble your gear to blow, suck, and scrape playa dust out of it? Is your PA disposable? How about that Marshall double stack? How do you get powdered fossilfishshit out of the Floyd Rose or out of the coilwire in your Duncan hotrails pickup? The sweat from your hands turns your fretboard and neck into a clay coated monstrosity, and you can watch as the caustic dust erodes your strings and tuners. How do you plan to protect the stuff when you're not using it? How many trucks do you need to bring your own stage and lighting?
Second: Burning Man is what it is, a mindswelling experience, a conscious force that replaces plan with spontaniety. Plan a set to start at 7, and your drummer and bassist are nowhere in sight, and the keyboard player is chemically enhanced enough that he's already putting on a psychedelic solo show. The tunes you've planned to play, even when you can actually find the bandmembers, are lost to oblivion. Also, a band is like a polygamous marriage. Many marriages have dissolved at Burning Man. Get the picture? Might be best to ride the tide, meet burners who are musicians, and form a separate project starting on common ground. Seems to me that playa-born bands are more valid anyway.
Listen to the advice from seasoned participants, don't rely on your bandmates to help you pull this thing off. If you want to perform, there are many many stages and venues. Radical self-reliance, the name of the game. Keep it simple.
ANY kind of live music has an appreciative audience in BRC. Just don't plan too big, and don't bring your best equipment. Take baby steps until you know where you're going. Good luck, I'll be listening for you.
Off subject: on first posting I looked at the date and time posted... according to my time instrumentation and the local electronic media, today is Friday, January 18. Can anyone tell me how I posted this tomorrow? It's happening again... just when I was getting used to this dimension... the Trickster's never gonna leave me alone.
Infinity = 1; since 1 / infinity = 1, zero is an absolute impossibility. The reason triangles are so unlike other polygons is that a triangle is part of a polygon bridging two dimensions.
