2014_stageThis year is the “Rez-Erection” of Lord. Our beloved founder Lord Huckleberry passed last fall. He believed in a tribe based on the Power, Glory and Beauty of Love. This year “Rez-Erection” is about still laughing with that man, each other and creating magic and mayhem. DUSTFISH is part of Lordz living legend and has always been about inclusion. We love when new people are drawn to us, whether you knew the lovely motherfucker or not. He’d originated this tribe as PHEY: Pleasure Hogs Enjoying You. We’re your crazy bad ass friends at your tripped out corner dive bar with Fanfuckingtastic live stage offerings. We are the missing tooth in the smile that is Burning Man.

Lord always dreamed and schemed of using hot air balloons as a means to travel. This year of Caravansary we take our live stage and it’s accompanying performers aloft in search of travelers to touch down and entertain. Our stage will be a 45′ long airship (with upper decks both fore and aft as performance/observatory decks). Tethered above are three giant balloons (visual, not actual hot air balloons). Traveling along side is a pink elephant (sound/audio booth) under it’s own balloon. Three flying monkeys are our scouts going out over two “dunes” (interlocked 24′ chill and bar domes) in search of travelers to touch down and entertain. Décor will include fantastical items and animals from our travels.

YUP, plans are ambitious, if you don’t have carpenter skills, fluffers and food always welcome. Beer welcome, you know the drill. Creating it’s half the fun and eza BIG project. Email dustfishbuild@gmail.com to get hooked up. Build locations happen in both Benicia and Oakland.

Parties are fun and we like ‘em but they’re more about gathering/fun than actual fundraising. We fly this caravan on camp fees. Saves you bread and gets us much needed early build dough if you can do it sooner than later! See column to right. If you simply cannot make full camp fees, be a build slave. Some will happen in June but JULY/August will be the major mayhem build times. Leads will know who showed, or not, and that will help your cause. Because really: Everybody pays camp fees, no matter how much they contribute in addition. The process of creating this is its own labor of loves.
