Who’s playing? [Updates]

Musicians Banglater and de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk pose at the world premiere of the film "TRON: Legacy" in Hollywood, CaliforniaAnyone got any info? Send it in and we’ll share it with Burners.
Yes, ha ha , daft punk is playing, good one.

Rockstar Librarian is on the case, and will have something for us on the Tuesday before the burn:

Hello lovelies! I am putting the finishing touches on a new data collection tool for this year’s RSL Music Guide and will be sending out notifications about it to all the sound camps and music camps for which I have contact information. Feel free to PM me your camp information if you believe I won’t have it already and you’d like your camp’s musical info included in the guide. Promise it is worth the wait!

In the meantime, please share any information you have. Burners wants to know! Give us some hints, are there surprises in store? Oakey, perhaps? Juno Reactor? Lucent Dossier Experience?

We’re missing 2 major sound camps this year – Opulent Temple and Root Society. Both camps in the past have brought large numbers of big names DJs to the Playa, then made those DJs available to other camps. Without them as anchors, this could be a big blow to the Burning Man music scene. Or, it could be a return to the roots – giving lesser known “Cargo Cult” DJs the chance to play on the equipment left behind for them by the gods. Fertility 2.0 champions Distrikt have moved 1 block further away from the Esplanade, to 9 & G. On the plus side, we have Digital Apex – a new camp spun-out from Dancetronauts; and we get a giant bamboo control tower that shoots lasers and flames, and we get White Ocean, who are bringing some world class talent:

None Dare Call Her Bettie: Previewing the Playa at the Nevada Museum of Art

The Black Rock Arts Foundation has announced that Beth “Bettie June” Scarborough, Burning Man’s Associate Director of Art Management (read: she runs the ARTery and is on the committee that gives out honorarium grants to art projects), is about to give Reno a glimpse of what’s in store for us on the playa this year. Do not call Bettie June ‘Bettie.’

Reno’s Nevada Museum of Art will host the show, entitled DESERT ART PREVIEW: BETH SCARBOROUGH AKA BETTIE JUNE PREVIEWS PLAYA ART FOR BURNING MAN 2013. Yes, it’s a long stroll of a title, about a mouthful and a half, but for vicarious thrillseekers too civilized for the playa this show is a chance to get a handle on the rich and inventive tapestry of artistic endeavor that blooms under the hands of burners each year in the Black Rock Desert, without so much as leaving Reno. . . and who better to present a sneak preview of the Org’s hand-picked art installations than Bettie June (do not call her ‘Bettie’)?

Bettie June (do not call her ‘Bettie’) will be taking the podium at the museum on Thursday, August 8th, 2013, at 6:00 PM. Those who call her ‘Bettie’ will be ground into a fine paste and served to the rest of the attendees on a selection of artisan breads and free-range hors d’oeuvre crackers, accompanied by various wines imported from Atlantis and Brobdingnag.

Tickets are $8.00 for NMA members, or $12.00 for non-members. Museum memberships start at $30 (for students) and go up to $10,000, although I’m sure they’d be happy to take more than ten grand if you’re willing to part with it.

Enjoy the show; do not call her ‘Bettie.’

Tickets are available online at the Nevada Museum of Art’s website.
