The Burnal Equinox has come and passed. Jack Rabbit is speaking on an increasingly regular basis. The snow is slowly peeling off of Nevada’s mountains. The Department of Public Works (DPW) are out in Gerlach. Every day brings us all that much closer to Burning Man.
Imagine a few thousand people bustle through the heart of the South of Market (SoMa) district of San Francisco on a spring day when you can actually wear short sleeves. People dance between stages blasting electronic music from 6 foot tall speakers set up in the middle of what would otherwise be intersections choked with midday car traffic. Some have taken advantage of the warm weather to dress scantily in elaborate and colorful costumes...

On April 19, I walked into 1015 Folsom and walked through air that was thick with art, mystery, festival, and a celebration of peak experiences. That night all the floors were open, with the main stage featuring luminaries like Kaminanda, Shpongle, and Random Rab.
Tropics. Art. Transformation. Bass. Yoga. Magic. Wonder. Mud. These were all aspects of the wonderful Envision Festival in Costa Rica, held from February 27 to March 4th in Uvita, Costa Rica...
This is a great place to prepare for the Playa, but there’s one essential item not sold here that every Burner needs. It’s the night after the general sale of tickets for Burning Man, and I feel familiar pangs of anxiety today; it’s more than the fear of being excluded from Black Rock City in 2013.

Last week on Friday January 25, I had the pleasure of attending Iluminación, the pre party in San Francisco for the Envision Festival...
On New Year's Day, the Space Cowboys hosted their 13th annual Breakfast of Champions event, a six-to-six rager of pure, bass-thumping afterburn. There were four simultaneous decks spinning this year, with two stages sweating inside Mighty and a giant, tent-shrouded outdoor stage flanked by stacks of high-quality European loudspeakers.
On New Years Eve, I ventured for another AnonEvents & Sunset SF Party, Sea of Dreams. I had never been to this before, let alone been in San Francisco, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I figured it'd be similar to Ghost Ship given it is organized by the same people but I wasn't sure. It turned out to be just as awesome
On Saturday December 1, I went to the Black Rock Arts Foundation's 'Artumnal' fundraiser at the Bently Reserve in San Francisco. It's the only fundraiser that BRAF has all year round so it was definitely cool to get a chance to give to the org while enjoying an awesome party.

Saturday October 27th, one of the most magical events happened: Ghost Ship. This is thrown by the Space Cowboys and Sunset Promotions, who also bring the wonderful Sunset Parties, Sunset Boat, and Sea of Dreams.
