This weekend I am going to be part of another David Wilson production (remember him from Angel Island and the Fort Show? please take a look at his blog if you are not familiar with the wonderfulness that is DW).
A troupe of us will be performing this weekend at The Treasure Island Music Festival during the headlining MGMT set, doing live light manipulations. The excellent Jeffrey Manson and DW have masterminded a magical show that includes light projected from within (and onto) pyramids built by Mr. Elias Reitz, a live video feed onto a JUMBO TRON, and yours truely dancing on-stage with light projecting onto mylar ‘wings.’ Difficult to describe but if any of you are familiar with Manson’s work at Invisible Oceans or Angel Island, you’ll know it’s going to be magical. I took some photos of a practice we had last night and made a little stop-motion vid for you to check out (That’s DW dancing in front of Jupiter there at the end).
But first, a video from the band MGMT (a song that I’m sure you will recognize):
and here’s practice last nite:
If you’re coming out, I’ll hope to see you there. I’ll post a vid of what we end up doing after this weekend. YES! Friend collaboration is the BEST! Have an excellent weekend, friends!
***P.S.>>> MGMT is playing a secret show tonight at The Independent in SF, try to get tickets! A smaller group of us will be trying out some of the projections there>>>GO!

hey ya’ll ,
HOW”S IT GOOON? I was gone up to the wooly noodly wild woods of Mendocino for the weekend, for the Invisible Ocean Festival , organized by Mr. Elias Reitz of Painted Cakes and Gojogo (amongst many other things). There were somewhere around 30 BANDS that played well into the early morning hours each night and a few pretty rad 4am dance parties. Highlights included swings, glow-in-the dark frisbee-ing, homemade beers, pizzas, rad movie night (nice job MVJ), projections (by?? who?? someone please inform!), facepainting, lots of performances and a screening of the lovely KC Bull’s movie she made about her dad Sandy Bull. Plus delicious food, record sharing, blanket dancing, ribbon braiding, and lots of new friends. AWESOME> > >
