Burning Man 2017
BURNING MAN! Drag your head out from under whatever rock you're living under and that head under the dust. This is undoubtedly the most important event of the season for people who believe not just in a festival but a community. Burning Man is about more than what you do it becomes a part of who you are. We know that for most of us here at Nitevibe it is a part of who we are and a part of what we do all year long. Whether it is the outfits we wear, the music we listen to, the art we support, or the sexual-social beliefs we hold on to, Burning Man becomes a part of who you are. It all starts with the Ten Principles, some guiding ideas that facilitate the festival, Black Rock City (because it is a city), and the city's citizens. From radical self-reliiance to participation to leave no trace to radical inclusion and radical self-expression, it is these ideals that keep Burning Man the experience and culture that we have known and loved since its start on Ocean Beach with 20 participants in 1986 (over 40 years ago!). This year's theme is Radical Ritual and your favorite Bay Area troupes and camps are getting all their thangs out to the desert to make it special for you. You've been hearing about them all year whether it's Airpusher Collective, Pink Mammoth, Dusty Rhino, Flaming Lotus Girls with their Noetica sculpture, Opulent Temple, Disco Knights in their last year on the Playa, Mayan Dragon, Robot Heart, and more. There's performances including an on-Playa ballet performance of Stravinsky's The Rites of Spring as well as performances from Fou Fou Ha, and a return of the 747 art car. Don't make us say more, just get yourself radically prepared and get yourself on the long dusty road. Date: Sunday, August 27 - Tuesday, September 5, Time: gates open at 12:01am, Place: Black Rock City, NV, Cover: Tickets are sold out, More Info (ML)

I'm sure you can find that unique dish or vase that you've been searching for at Velasquez's booth. Feast your eyes on Layla Skramstad's pop art murals, including one very tasty Pop Tart recreation.

Music: techno, house, tech-house
Cover: $15-17 presale
Straight from the Paris underground comes Traumer, an artist who has an innate ability to weave subtle narratives and deeply nuanced rhythms into his mesmerizing music. His dexterity in the studio is evident in his back catalogue with straight up techno released with powerhouse labels like Cocoon and Desolat, with more recent cuts focused on a deeper, more considered house sound. Perfect for hypnotising dance floors, he has cultivated a mature sound that is subtle yet moves the body. Organic sounding percussion and pulsating basslines work in unison at the core of his productions, with deep grooves that lock you in tight and refuse to relent. Be Svendsen produces an organic and nomadic style of techno. After starting his solo project in 2011 releasing a series of EPs and remixes, the ripples spread via live performances and a breakthrough into the international scene came in 2014. While exploring a myriad of styles and musical traditions, Be's live show-downs has developed into a melting pot of hypnotic desert-circus-shaman-cowboy-techno, incorporating elements of vocals, teased field-recordings, nostalgic samples and live instruments, mixed up with the meditative qualities of repetition.
