ART PROJECTS & BUILDS
Come learn about these amazing regional art and build projects and see how you might jump in our support them on their way towards realizing their visions.
Black Rock City Cosmic Comedy Club
Trish Smart is creating a new comedy club to take to the Black Rock desert this year. Sure, it’s definitely enough to cat-herd a motley array of stand-up comics as is, but that gets even more random if they are Burners, and then you have to build the actual club, and have seats and tables, and have a bar, and bingo cards and prizes, and bring all that to an environment that is literally trying to kill you, and then pack it up and make it disappear like it never happened. Is this a joke? Nope. This is dead serious. Come learn about the project and maybe help with some build or art projects. And be sure to check out Trish’s comedy writing workshop, and the stand-up show at resync!
MUSIC, DANCE & FLOW PERFORMANCES
In addition to our DJ lineup we have a number of live music, dance and flow performances and events.
Gordon Sterling and the People (Live Set)
The Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth: Gordon Sterling and the People are here to bring it to you! Freshly assembled in 2020, Gordon has brought together a team of incredible musicians to bring forth a fresh and exciting pallette of original, dynamic soul/rock tunes. but we’ve got them all to ourselves at resync! Be ready to dance!
Stefan Edward, live set
"Stefan Edward is the latest in the singer/songwriters hailing from the well established music scene in Frederick, MD. Not satisfied with the traditional structure of the entertainment industry, Stefan decided to blaze his own trail, in true DIY fashion.
With a sound that's reminiscent of independent trailblazers like Tim Buckley and Dispatch, Stefan is a thoughtful lyricist. Add to that the catchy melodies and self contained foot-tapping rhythms that drive the lyrics, and you've end up with a solo artist that can keep a room captivated. You can find Stefan's EP, LS Session, on iTunes, released by Legendary Sounds, LLC."
Dad, spiritual and motivational raps
The story of Our hero, Joey Dadass, began beneath the bleachers at a racetrack where he was born with high-octane horsepower running through his veins.
Dad’s arrival on this Earth coincides with a rift in time and space, making determination of his exact age nearly impossible. While details of Dad’s childhood are murky at best, it is known that he spent several years traveling in the back of his father’s semi-truck at a young age, experiencing life in the fast lane. His father eventually settled in the Milwaukee area while his mother laid down roots in Georgia.
While traveling through the Appalachian Mountains, a young Dad became separated from his father.
After wandering for some time, he was adopted by a sleuth of black bears. One fateful day our hero told his family he was going out for a pack of smokes and through a strange series of circumstances, found himself on a spiritual journey to the Grand Canyon.
While on this soul searching, spiritual trek, he came across a hawk in the sky that swooped down and created a tear in the cosmos. It was at this time that the moniker “Dad” was bestowed upon the young man, and he had an epiphany. Immediately he knew his destiny was making big poppa moves for his family.
Sunset & Chill Flow Arts
A regional favorite and returning to resync, the Sunset & Chill crew will be on hand to dazzle and mesmerize us once again. Maybe you’ve caught one of their performances in the DMV before. If you haven’t yet, please don’t miss this opportunity to see them in flow.
CLASSES, SEMINARS & DISCUSSIONS
There’s a lot of moments that seem to turn into ways we connect our knowledge and experience and resync. And there are the ones we plan too.
DIY Music Publishing Discussion
Are you an independent music producer and publisher? Or interested in becoming one? Join us for an informal crowdsourced discussion about creating, producing, publishing and promoting your own music, and maybe even starting your own record label.
Everybody’s got something to share and everyone’s got something to learn. Let’s see what we can all bring together!
How to Get Your Gear to Black Rock City and Back: DC Container & Logistics
Are you a new Burner wondering how all those big art projects and camp set ups get out to BRC and back? Or are you an experienced Burner wondering how you are going to plan for transporting that new crazy idea or art car without all the trouble and cost you think it might take?
For a decade DC Container & Logistics has been a community and volunteer run specialized logistics service that reduces round trip BRC transportation costs by at least half as the next cheapest option (which actually only gets you to Reno, and from there you have to figure out all the rest on your own). Bring your questions and ideas and let’s get you set for 2023!
Laughter yoga is a type of yoga that involves laughing voluntarily for a prolonged period of time. It is the easiest deep breathing exercise. Laughter and crying are two major releases and we focus on the breathing in laughter.
This class will focus on connection. Connecting your breath to your body and connecting with others with this breathing exercise. Laughter yoga is a combination of pranayama breathing practice and asanas (postures) with laughter exercise.
This will be held at 3 PM on Saturday.
KJ’s Ratchet Strap University Class
KJ Donoghue will show you how to not be a ratchet strap idiot in his easy going kinda way. He’ll also tell you that ratchet straps are not that complicated, and that this isn’t a university class. He’s right about the ratchet straps if you know what you are doing.
This is a great opportunity to get a walkthrough of how to think through and use ratchet straps to make sure what you strap down doesn’t go flying around, or end up in some terrible knot you have to cut. We’ve all seen this, or done this. Be that Burner who knows what the hell you are doing with strap and ratchet placement, tension balancing, and storing your ratchet straps in a way that doesn’t look like a crazed rat’s nest.
We are still confirming our Rites of Spring DJ's, so check back soon for updates.
For now, here's who came together at our amazing first resync.art in July, 2022...
Projects and collaborations got you in flow? Good! That’s the whole idea! Hungry? Great! We got you. You can stop be or pre-order from…
Lala Enchilada - Mexican Enchilada Bar
Kyla and Ary will be on hand to serve up another round of their signature enchiladas and fresh Mexican food and treats. It’s a little ridiculous how good their food is. Actually, it’s a lot ridiculous. Give them a try! You won’t be mad. If you are, that’s how you know you have real problems.
