Stages Seeking Artists

Postby admin » Tue Jun 20, 2006 11:47 am

Greetings!

This is a thread to help camps that have performance stages at Burning Man find artists to perform on them. This is sorta the flip side of the Artists Seeking Stages thread.

So, if you've got a camp with a stage or turntables, and you're seeking talented folks to perform, you've come to the right place! Post a reply in here and see what happens...

(Because of some strange reason I can't edit the post above so I had to make a new one, sorry for that)

Some information about the work-of-art the Burning Experience Team is going to build:

“Utopia as a radical framework measuring a floor span of 60 meters, 15 meters high with a circle of 30 meters in radiation. in the middle its extreme dimensions also display some
fears. Being without limits it will never be captured completely. But hey, we can't give it all away!”

“Utopia constructed from beams with different lengths nailed beam by beam and lid out from the floor inside the 3 tree-trunk elements. Sun light will drop shadows inside of the structure as at night the light comes from the structure itself, dropping its shadows in the surrounding area.”

“We chose beams as symbols of human race like each individual on our planet all dispose their unique trades. It will be the Earthly expression of our inner sense of being the immense form, being inviting to others. it will be the core, the centre to all others that seek warmth, it will serve as a potential to grow, opening all chakra's it will stimulate the purest form of inner sense.”

Below is a little picture we have made to show you all where we will be located at the Playa:

European Dj seeking to play at the Burning man

Postby Lenstar » Tue Jul 25, 2006 4:03 am

Hi, this is my second time going to the burning man. I was there in 2005 and i am going again in 2006. I am bringing some equipment with me and i am seeking to play at a camp this year.

I'm a 24 year old electro/tech-house/techno Dj from travelling from Ireland. I know i can bring something good to this years event so i am asking if anyone has a rig i would love to help and add my part to what i believe is a wonderfull event.

I will be bringing enough equipment to play a wider varity of music than just electro, tech-house or techno.

If you are interested please send me an email with the style of music you like to hear, even a list of records that would suit your camp and i will forward a mix of mine to suit that style.

This will be my last time visiting the Burning man for a few years so i would really like to make it the best i can so please email me.

Thank you for your time,

Lenny
All i want is to play at the burning man

Comfort & Joy is a queer burning man theme camp that hosts restorative, relaxing, and celebratory social events + workshops.

This year we're hosting a slow-dance event called Sway on Wednesday evening, from 8:pm until midnight. Optional dancecards will be provided, along with an instruction session on basic dance steps from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

We're now looking for guest musicians or bands who would like to provide the sweet tunes and romantic melodies that will keep our guests dancing through the night. Acoustic instruments are encouraged, but if you can provide your own amplification we can provide power. If your repertoire includes a range of jazz or swing songs from the 30s & 40s, on through to contemporary lounge, this could be your chance to bring a rare playa performance to a very appreciative audience.

If interested, send me a PM or email me at v at vness dot net

Hello, fellow burners!

We're Camp101, from Boston, MA. We'll be hosting downtempo electronic music events throughout the week in a chill-out atmosphere, and are currently looking for additional DJs to fill our schedule.

If you're a DJ who likes to play chillout/downtempo/dub/ambient - we'd love to have you perform at our camp! We have the PA + CD players; can also accommodate laptop DJs, if that's your thing (you bring the laptop - we'll plug you in :).

if you'd like to do it - grrrreat!! We do ask for at least a 1-hour set (and if you wanna go longer - hey, why not :). If you'd like to do couple sets throughout the week - we can probably make it happen as well :)

So, if interested (and we do hope you are), please send your replies to: illdub(at)gmail.com. In your e-mail, please include:

- what kind of music you're planning to play;
- media of choice (CDs/laptop);
- if you have a sample mix out there in the Webbed sea - include a link;
- if no mix, drop some names of artists you usually include when playing a set;
- when you'd like to play: day of week/time of day.

Thank you, and we hope to see you at our Camp101!

Penguins wanna have fun

Postby KitchenGodDave » Wed Aug 16, 2006 5:53 pm

The Lost Penguin Cafe is looking for acts for our stage.

We have a wonderful cafe on the Esplanade at 4:45. We have comfortable couches and server wine and chocolate to our patrons. If your entertainment is suited to soothe the masses or rip them out of their complacency then we are looking for you!

Bands, performance art, comedy, burlesque, musicals - anything that will wow them is fine by us. We are booking spots from Tuesday through Saturday from 9-11pm. After that is asshole theatre where the general public rules the microphone for spoken word, song, dance, seltzer in your pants – whatever.

The tech low-down. We have an 8 channel PA, two SM52 mikes w/stands and a nice weighted keyboard (repaired since last year) we will also have a CD player. If you bring your own XLR, RCA or ¼ inch cable you can connect anything into our PA and lay down your entertainment.

Contact KGD and tell him the night you want, the time and what your act is all about. Book your spot now info@torontoclown.com.

Golden Cafe Seeks Musicians and other Performers

Postby Lucifer » Wed Aug 16, 2006 9:37 pm

The Golden Cafe is a cocktail lounge and supper club featuring live original music. We have a house band, Holy Cow, that performs throughout the day, but we frequently invite other performers to jam with them or to do a few sets on their own. Most of our performers lean towards psychedelic rock, jazz, bluegrass, and other genres that deviate from the trance that is so ubiquitous in BRC. We're constantly seeking musicians to sit in with our house band, other groups that can expand our horizons (barbershop quartet? gospel? russian folk music? triphop? bossatronica?), and other performance artists with something unique to contribute. If this sounds like your scene, please send us a message or contact me through www.goldencafe.org!

BTW, here are some pictures from previous years, to give you a sense of what its all about:
