Long time, I know. Things have been crazy busy, and I know a lot of you know that getting married and creating an art car are good reasons ;). At any rate, we have put together a great party this weekend at an excellent west side location that’s open late. Hope you can make it down, shake your booty, toss back some egg nog, and support our paying off the art car! More info on the events page.
Remember that three eyed lanternfish (the Sqysh Fysh) art car on the playa? The wonky beast is finally having it’s first fundraiser after two years on the playa. Help preserve this endangered species from extinction~

Pumpkin (formerly known in the underground DJ world as Nick the Neck) is the producer and music curator behind the Wandering Marionettes and their eclectic monthly event, Kabinet Theatre. While his production style is often dark and cinematic, his DJ style is a melange of dubby tech-house, downtempo, trip-hop, alt-indie remixes and some circusy surprises thrown in for good measure. Tactfully walking the thin line between hip-grinding rhythms and bittersweet lyrical melodies, Pumpkin truly loves every song he shares with the dancefloor.
