Sorry for the delay in posting! Things have been insane over here at the Party Babas HQ!
First off....Fractal Cowboys out in Germany in early May, rocking it out for all the Germans.
The promo for the parties out there was amazing!
How amazing is this flyer design? It kind of reminds me of a Star Wars x Wild Wild West x Independence Day.
We also rocked it out hard at Xexify: an amazing Mohave experience brought to us by Dog of Tears, and at the Kindzaza party two weekends after. The two Mohave events were great, and really highlighted the the idea that the music/line should be determined based on location! location! location!!!
Alien Mental started around 3 am, as did KDD.
For Xexify, it was cold, but not "where are my nipples? did they run away?" kind of cold. Alien Mental played fast, but easy to dance to music. It kept the energy up, and the people moving.
KDD also started at 3 am, but the weather was sooo different. It was freezing, and windy. Like playa style winds the whole night. His set was also very good, very methodical and technical, very.....thought inducing over all, I would say. I actually saw KDD the weekend before indoors in SF and I found his outdoor set to be a little more difficult to dance to. I think that it was the combination of the cold, the wind, the music, and the fact that it was 3 am.Or...maybe its just that I am not that tough? and I should toughen up? and BRAVE the cold! and the wind! and the dust! and...and.....well whatever. I'm not doing that.
I am very interested to hear from people that went to both (or either) Mohave parties. How did you all feel about the flow of the line ups, and what are your thoughts about weather affecting the dancefloor/line up?
Anyway...soo all of these parties are fresh in my mind as we try to figure out our How Weird line up.
Things I am thinking about: day time, sunny then shady, lots of diverse people out and about.......The last two years we had a "tag team" theme, where every DJ had to tag team. It was like...super fun.
So....for our possibilities, it looks like :
A Super Special international guest (who we are in the process of getting some plane tickets for so...you know...more on that in a bit)
The wonderful, amazing, and brilliant Amber will be vising from Portland for the HW weekend. She is going to DJ the night before at Mer-Ka-Ba and we are hoping that we can kidnap her! (We will be kidnapping LeoHawk and Sour, already).
Fractal Cowboys , fresh off of their German Adventures, will be playing a WestPsy set, which is really something to look forward to! It will be a phat mix of trance and old school west coast style beats and samples.
An the ever popular Liam Shy will be joining us! We are excited to work with Liam and the Tantra folks. It really has been a while since we had done something all together.
And of course, we will have Parus! I heard a little rumor....that there will be NO red marines festival in 2013. If you go the Red Marines Website , the event listed is Mindshare (May 3-5 bitches!!!), which is a Shady Lady Products event, being supported by the Red Marines crew. So think about that people!!!! YOU NEED to get your fix of Parus this year, so come and geeetttt ittttttt.
On that note....I kind of REALLY REALLY want to hear a Parus vs Liam Shy set!
We are also super excited to feature Bodhi ! Bodhi is like....a force of mother fucking nature!!!!!!! Not only did he orchestrate Kindzaza's entry into the US, he helped organize and inspire individuals to gather and hear KDD play all over the US (as well as the fabulous previously mentioned Mohave party)!
We will also hear from one of my besties, Dog of Tears . If you havent heard his recent tracks, you are in for a mind blowing treat. the perfect mash up sound of experimental, dirty, and psychedelic.
We cant wait to see you all out there!
If you want to help out, just contact me! We will be hustling and bustling on the stage this weekend.

Also....please note now.....
The parking lot is like...less than a mile from the camping area. BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO WALK IT AND HIKE IN YOUR STUFF.
Last year we provided some wheelbarrows/carts/whatever for people...but guess what......
you all would take them and then not return them.
and then it got dark and no one could find them anymore.
SO. We will put some fucking lights on the Transportation Assistance Devices.
Please return them to the FRONT GATE when finished with use. Yes, all the way back to the front gate.
If you dont want to do that you can
1) arrive early. before dark. This is a SAFETY issue. The road into the party from that gate is only wide enough for ONE car. Therefore, if you want to DRIVE YOUR CAR past the gate, get in before dark.
2) buy yourself a car parking pass. These will be $10. and they WILL run out. We have tried, in the past, to have a first come first serve kind of a deal with parking on site, but it really doesnt work. Having all these cars drive on our little dirt road really impacts the land. It creates potholes, and people run over all of our little lights, and smash into nature....and all those things cost time and money to clean up. Note that you will have an ASSIGNED parking location, so if you want to park on site and camp with your friends...maybe drop me an email and let me know.
3) If you have a disability, and need to be close to the dancefloor, PLEASE EMAIL ME EARLY to let me know. Even the on site parking is a short walk from the dancefloor. We will give SPECIAL permission for those individuals who have limited mobility to drive closer in, accompanied by a Party Volunteer. But you have to contact me in advance. I'm serious. I wont be able to do much when I get an email on May 22nd asking about special accommodations.
4) if you have a big ass fucking car, you will have to buy a car parking pass. Like, no matter where you park. By big ass fucking car I guess I mean an RV, or.......a really big truck. you know who I am talking about. the guy with like...the REALLY REALLY big truck. you gotta buy a parking pass pal!
Okay! I am out! More updates this weekend!
