New Year’s Eve: Fire & Ice & other delights

December 30, 2008


Looking for something unusual for New Year’s Eve instead of the same old same old run of the mill yada yada yada? Consider one of the following “Burning Man” esque adventures! These events are organized in large part by Burners and people who have been inspired by the Burning Man aesthetic.

96a8e955-e16f-4168-ac0e-d353b2905507If we weren’t heading for Joshua Tree to camp and climb and hike and star gaze and dance beside the fire and under the smiling moon and winking Venus, I’d be tempted to head to San Francisco to see one of my favorite bands, Thievery Corporation perform at Sea Change/Sea of Dreams.

In Santa Barbara, Fishbon presents “Fire & Ice.” Fellow Burning Mom and friend Jenessa has performed and starred in numerous Fishbon extravaganzas; this time she’s been feverishly constructing marvelous, sexy costumes galore using fabulous fabrics and will be a “Tray Girl.”3131808524_4ee11300a3_o

Since Dr. Megavolt decided to take a break from his bigBurning Manshow a couple of years ago, he’s been sighted often a thePescadrome and performed with his table top setup this year. But, it’s been several years since he’s done his major show for any audience. Well, hang on to your headgear, because he’ll be breaking out the big coil, an 8 foot mega tesla coil forFIRE + ICE, Fishbon’s New Year’s Eve event. Performing with his wfe Victoria for one show only, Dr. Megavolt will bring in the New Year with his own special brand of man-made lightning craziness.Be There!

Tickets for Fishbon New Year’s Eve are available on the Fishbon Ticket website: TICKETS ARE LIMITED AND THERE WILL BE NO TICKETS SOLD AT THE DOOR. BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW. This event always sells out, so don’t wait until the last minute on this one. TICKETS $50, such a deal.

In LA, the Do Lab and Lucent Dossier are organizing parties in two performance spaces: at the incredible Edison Hotel in downtown, and in Beverly Hills. See below.

Be sure to get tickets as soon as possible so you won’t be disappointed like we were last year when we left Montana de Oro State Beach for Santa Barbara–only to discover the event was completely sold out. (So figuring we were going to drop some dough on tickets, we bought $100 worth of  Chandon champagne and crab legs and went back to the beach to join our friends!)

Where ever you are, when ever you are, what ever you are–I toast to you!

    Wow! The Sea of Dreams line-up is amazing. Still, star gazing and hiking and camping is pretty cool too. Ahhhhhhh…….
