Burning Man 2009 – Big Sound Camp Lineups part 3 – Basscamp, Bootie, False Profit, Rock Bottom, Space Cowboys

On with the lineups! In this post are Basscamp 50Hz Healers, Bootie, False Profit, The Deep End / Rock Bottom, and the Space Cowboys.

Basscamp 50hz Healers – 2:00 & Biology

I don’t know much about this camp but they have an art car called Ganesh, which I’m guessing is some sort of elephant. Picks: Rabbit in the Moon, Marty Party, An-ten-nae, Knowa Knowone, Bassnectar, and I’m definitely interested in seeing this huge Salt Lake contingent throw drown. Salt Lake burners know what the eff is up.



Adrian and the Mysterious D’s party Bootie, the best mashup party on the planet, will be 2 nights this year, and offers a nice change of pace from nonstop electronic music. Here’s a fun fact: from 1995-2007 Adrian was the editor and publisher of the Piss Clear, Black Rock City’s daily paper.


False Profit – Esplanade & 4:00

No details yet on artists but their big night is Tuesday. Check this link for details in a few days.


Rock Bottom (The Deep End?) – 9:00 & Fossil

The word on the street is that the legendary Deep End is no more. But, rumor has it that some Deep End DJs are doing a smaller scale camp called “Rock Bottom.” (Source)

Sometimes you have to hit Rock Bottom and begin again. 8 years ago Rock Bottom was one of 3 camps who formed The Deep End. Though the Deep End is now playa legend, some AARP members will gather for a more intimate celebration of high spirits and deep grooves. Stop in, bring a bottle, and dance.

*** Update  8/23 – Just posted to Facebook, courtesy of @burncast (source). Meat Katie is doing a daytime set on Thursday. Get ‘yer breaks on!


Space Cowboys


I effin love these guys. They took last year off and the playa just didn’t feel right without the Unimog. Here’s the word: (source:

We here at the Space Cowboys are very, very excited for our return to the playa. After our much needed break last year (twelve years in a row ain’t bad) we’re re-charged and ready to rock. We’ve got a great bunch of events planned, a great bunch of other camps we’re stoked to collaborate with; and of course we’ve got an incredible line-up of djs, from our own amazing crew, to our international “celebrity” friends, all excited to rock your world (or at least shake the dust off your ass!). We never like to ruin the surprise of great music, so you won’t find any line-up cheatsheets here (that just takes the fun out of it). but its gonna go a little something like this:

Monday night – The UNIMOG, SC djs & special guests go BLUE (Happy Birthday Chrissy!) at the Braindrop (11pm – 4am)

Tuesday afternoon The UNIMOG, SC djs and friends rock out the greeters! Just our way of giving back, and saying hello.

Tuesday night – The UNIMOG shows its dark side at False Profit.

Thursday sunrise – The UNIMOG & SC djs say arrrgh at Swashbuckler Sunrise (the saloon out by the fence).

Thursday afternoon – The UNIMOG strips with the SC djs at the Chinchilla Lingerie Show (3pm-6pm), somewhere behind our camp, listen for the Mog, or ask us before.

Thursday night /Frday early AM – The UNIMOG, SC djs, guests & a massive laser show rock the Flaming Lotus Girls’ SOMA. (1am- 4am)

Friday afternoon – The UNIMOG & SC djs Shissla & ShOOey rock out Rock Bottom (formerly known as the Deep End)!

Friday night – The Space Cowboys 12th Annual Black Rock Hoe Down at the Raygun Gothic RocketShip. With the UNIMOG (and a massive amount of additional sound) Martha, Jimmy the Wagon, Mr. Janky, Ganesh and a flotilla of other art cars. We’ll have a BYO cup bar for your drinking pleasure, grilled cheese and bacon at sunrise. This IS the one not to miss folks, why do you think we’ve been doing it so long?

Saturday afternoon – The UNIMOG, SC djs and those Rock Bottom Deep Enders, get the dust off all afternoon at Disorient’s ArtCar Wash

There’s more to come…. but we know how everyone likes to plan everything out with the best intentions, if only to be distracted by cool beats and blinking lights!

Swing by our camp, the ol’ RIPE Ranch at 3:30 & Esplanade!

See you out there!


Space Cowboys “Shipshape: A Sporty Affair with a Nautical Flair” – Sunday 8/2/09

Yeah! The Space Cowboys will be back on the Playa this year! They are hosting a nautical-themed fundraiser on Sunday, August 2nd. Ahh, taste the multi-layered irony as burners and breakbeat heads rock a yacht club while wearing sweaters around their necks. So put your dancing pants on and support the crew with the coolest art car around, the Unimog!



Theme Camps Unite Like Voltron for ‘Sand by the Ton’ – Sat 7/11/09

******************************UPDATE 7/11/09 – 11:30AM ***********

False Profit gave a sneak peek at some of the fire art and one of the stages. (Via False Profit Twitter)


Wow. It seems like every big sound camp and art car in the Bay Area is involved with this event: Opel/Opulent Temple, the Space Cowboys, False Profit, Nuero Weapon, Symbiosis, Gravity Point, and Big Art Studios.

Supposedly there is sand, swimming pools, circus shenanigans, a 50 foot long boat suspended off of cranes, djs, bands, and probably flame throwers, as it wouldn’t be a burner party without some form of conflagration. Don’t miss the chance to see Beats Antique drop cuts from their new album, and the Mermen rock out on the surfin’ safari tip. It should be the Burning Man fundraiser of the friggin’ summer or so don’t sleep on it or you will be one sad panda. More info can be found over here.
