The Bay Area Derby Girls need your help

The Derby Girls can't compete where they've been competing any longer
because too many people have been coming to watch and the location doesn't
have the correct permits to support that many people.  It seems as if 
another location has been secured but the catch is, the Derby Girls will
need to provide their own floor surface.  And floors aren't cheap.

Therefore, the B.A.D. Girls are holding a fundraiser this Thursday, May 24th 
at DNA to raise money for a sport court.  It's a late night adventure (doors
open at 9pm, show starts at 11pm).  There will be skating by current team
members and great performances such as. Devilettes Paige's Skate Tease 
Bottoms Up Burlesque Bombshell Betty The Indra And photos with the Derby
Girls Check out the flyer

Poleng Lounge
1751 Fulton Ave @ Masonic

Ooah (Glitch Mob, LA)
Danny Corn (Moontribe)
Dr. Toast (False Profit)

Medium Reality
Clay Chollar

San Francisco, CA- Investors of False Profit, LLC - an international consortium of brokers under close scrutiny by the US Treasury for their paradigm-challenging economic theories - plan to collect extensive Dividends this Thursday at the Poleng Lounge. Amping up for FP's nth year in BRC, the night will feature some of the talent that will be contributing to one of False Profit, LLC's signature marks on the playa - The Tuesday Night Party. 

This is the Poleng Lounge's first meeting with False Profit, LLC and the forward-thinking investor base. Officials at the Treasury reacted with a initial plan to send in one or several National Guard companies, but backed down, citing there were none left to mobilize. 

It has been rumored that Dr. Toast, holding a doctorate in Downtempo, has recently been in the lab isolating several new isotopes of Bass.

The Dreamtime Circus presents ~ "Between Worlds"

The Dreamtime Circus is a troupe of fire fairies, clowns, musicians, and all types of other magical and fantastical creatures who travel far and wide to share the uplifting experience of the circus with the peoples of the world. 
From September 2007 to March 2008, the Dreamtime Circus shall bring its dreamtime creations across the globe to India, where we will dazzle and delight children and grown-ups alike.  Orphanages, refugee camps, villages, and cities, wherever a circus need be, a circus shall be. All shows will be free. We seek to use fire and circus arts as mediums for fostering cross-cultural communication and open exchanges of cultural ideas and artistic expressions. We carry with us respect and appreciation for the world's people, cultures, and land; and a positive vision for the planet's future. 
You can help make the Dreamtime Circus a reality!

Mike Daisey @ Berkeley Rep    Wednesday June 6th-Saturday June 9th

We worked out a hefty discount for Burners for these
performances (45%-71%).

Gather together for a pre-Burn celebration when the creator / 
performer of 21 Dog Years: Doing Time at and The
Ugly American, returns to Berkeley Rep with Great Men of Genius.
Mike Daisey applies his trademark wit and unique perspective 
to four fascinating historical figures.  On consecutive nights,
Mike profiles the legendary lives of P.T. Barnum, Bertolt Brecht,
L. Ron Hubbard and Nikola Tesla, exploring the nature of genius
and the pride, insanity and chauvinism that bind these men 
together.  Meet one genius for an insightful and entertaining
evening—or meet all four for a truly epic account of triumph and

Choose from the following performances:
Brecht: Wed, Jun 6 at 8pm
Barnum: Thu, Jun 7 at 8pm
Tesla: Fri, Jun 8 at 8pm
Hubbard, Sat June 9 at 8pm

The more geniuses you see, the more money you save—and as a
Burner, you save from the very beginning!  See any of the
above performances, pay just $25 for one genius / $40 for 2 
/ $60 for all 4 — brilliant!

Want to buy just one genius? Want to read more about the show?
For multiple geniuses, call 510.647.2949 and mention Burning Man

This Flambé is especially geared to showcase YOUR art, costume, theme camp and performance ideas for Burning Man 2007. Special emphasis on Green Man theme, Earth-friendly art and info, and radically interactive performance art! 
This will be an indoor night event and festival of light – we're seeking light performers, light art, and visual projection art. If you have green-themed décor, lights, or art projects highlighting the use of light and color, we encourage you to join us in making the night bright. Contact us immediately! 
NOTE: We originally planned to do this event June 2nd on Utah St and inside our beloved Mighty (host of many theme camp fundraisers and our Burnal Equinox). However, the street closure permit times and conditions were too restrictive for us to do this event and safely accommodate everyone wishing to attend. Knowing that many of you wish to attend this Pre-Com we were forced to move to a larger, mostly indoor venue and the June 9th date. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We love Mighty and hope to return there in the future.
