got the wrong idea

Burning Man is an unorganized group of camps who band together to share their art with the community. There are no stages to book. If you want to come and play, find a group of like minded people already out here or just haul your gear out and set it up and rock your socks off. Radical self reliance and radical self expression are basic values here.

Asking to book a 40 minute show is a little off-putting. It implies that you haven't really got a clue about what Burning Man is about and aren't worth the trouble of a response. Reposting 24 hrs later under other headings is likely to really tick people off. This is not my attitude, this is the attitude you are likely to experience here from many others, so fair warning.

Real quick thought. Maybe he is a burner looking for bookings before the actual event and is looking for a club or two to book him or Burner type events. I could be wrong but asking for more clarification might be easier than going off on someone.


So with that note I will PM details where to send a presspack and see about possibly booking you in the NW.

Also there are several of the larger camps that doo look for folks to play sets. Lush is a good example. I think they required a CD to be submitted and then choices were made later in the year.

Ahh, ya try to be helpful.

My note was meant to be guidance and caution against the fact that people do go off on people asking what are seen as ignorant questions, not going off on the guy myself.

I didn't realize that camps like Lush look for bookings. Didn't occur to me that this might mean offplaya. My gut is still that this person needs to do some homework, but in any case the act sounds pretty cool so I hope it works out.

That in my opinion was not the warmest way to say "I'm here to help".

I sent him a PM asking for his promo pack and let him know I could share some resources if he has never in fact been to the playa. I am not some holier than thou or pius type person but rather I think sometimes we get so used to arguing with each other on here we forget how to act a little kinder when someone could use some guidance.

If you post your request in about five more topic areas you might get an even greater response.

and you could always go over to the BORG2 site and see if they are going to have a big stage - heck, even apply for a grant!
