FLIP YOUR LID!
LET ART GO TO YOUR HEAD! A benefit for the Black Rock Arts Foundation.
That's right, a benefit. We are working hard to raise funds to support both our 2006 Nationwide Grant Cycle, and the installation of Dan Dasmann and Karen Cusolito's piece, 'Passage,' on the San Francisco Waterfront, and you can help!
The supperclub san francisco, one of SOMA's newest and most singular night spots, has graciously donated their incredible space for an unforgettable evening full of fine food, drink, and performance to benefit BRAF. It's gonna be good. A whole host of local artists and designers have offered to create an assortment of 'art hats' for auction at the event -- some names you might recognize? Michael Christian? Dicky of Dicky Box Fame? And you'll have the chance to bed down with the likes of Larry Harvey, Maid Marian Goodell, Ever Heady Harley K DuBois, Actiongrl Andie Grace, Naked Fire Goddess Crimson Rose, Will 'Mr. Klean' Roger, Burning Man Art Curator Lady Bee, Artist David Best, and more!
The ticket prices are tiered. And yes, some of them are expensive, because (cold hard truth) we are trying to raise money!
1) The evening begins with a delightful, intimate, well-heeled cocktail hour in the Bar Rouge.
2) As guests arrive we'll move to the Salle Neige where folks will bed down and get comfortable as a 5 course dinner is served, the duration of which will be peppered with modeled hats on auction and entertainment hosted by $teven Ra$pa, featuring: Janine Fondiller of Xeno, Soprano Marisa Lenhardt, Ouchy the Clown of the Porn Clown Posse, and an extraordinary array of amazing aerialists, thrilling performers and magnificent musicians.
3) Once the auction closes we'll get the dance floor moving at 11:00 p.m. with some of your favorite Black Rock City DJs, including Michael Anthony & The Late Night Sneaky, Laird (Get Yer Freak On!), Alibi (House of Lotus), Smoove (Space Cowboys & News Breaks) and Syd Gris (Opel/Opulent Temple).
Tickets range in price from $250 - $30 and we hope we have found a little something for eveyone in this line up!
So, find a fine frock, put a hat on your head, and join us! April 27th at the supperclub san fancisco at 657 Harrison Street.
Tickets are going like hotcakes! Tickets and venue space are sure to sell out! Get yours now!
