So this will be my first Burning Man this year, and I am excited as hell about it! I was thinking about how I can contribute, rather than just be a bystander. I'm not big on building, sculpting or painting, but I am a singer/songwriter, so I had this idea...
I just had this idea earlier today, and I have not thought it out a whole lot, but I just got really excited about it, and I'd love to know what other experienced or newbie Burners think...
For any musician or music lover who is going to Burning Man this year, I was thinking about putting together some kinda rag-tag Burning Man band that only exists and plays on the Playa. If there are any guitarists, bass players, drummers, singers, or whatever else out there who would like to, I was thinking we could come up with a big list of songs we could practice individually on our own and then play when we're all on the playa! The idea isn't to sound polished or anything, it's just another way for us to express ourselves, since it seems to me, that's the whole idea behind BM.
I'm located in Corte Madera, CA (it's like 10 miles north of SF), so if anyone's in the area and would wanna talk in person or just jam, that'd be cool. But, if anyone across the globe is interested, send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or drop me a line on AOL instant messenger (BlackJaxx316), I'm on it all the time.
I don't have any idea of what we'd call ourselves, how many songs we'd learn, or anything, this is just an idea for now, so I'm just putting it out there to see who might be interested.
Oh, and any and all advice about anything BM related is greatly appreciated, since this will be my first time and all. Thanks everyone!
