The Do Lab Hearts You

When The Do Lab gets behind the producer wheel, amazing things happen. They don’t just put on shows- they put on audio-visual-theatrical onslaughts that immerse you completely. They merge circus and theater with musical performances, and there is an almost Shakespearean quality to their shows, if you can even use that adjective to describe face melting basslines and circus folk. You come away from their shows (which always feature amazing musical talent) feeling like you have just seen A Midsummer Nights Dream, only louder, and with much more dancing.

Their performance resume includes the gigantic flower and venus fly trap at Burning Man ’06, hosting a stage at Coachella for numerous years, the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, and of course, the amazing Simpler Times Camp at Burning Man this past year.

So if you are in Los Angeles this Valentine’s Day weekend, don’t sleep on their latest manifestation, Lucent L’amour. Performances by Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Stanton Warriors, Lazer Sword…. need I say more? Details below:

Here is the quick rundown:

  • 100+ artists, musicians, performers and art installations
  • Two stages of music and dancing with live and electronic acts
  • Live mural and digital painting, art gallery and silent auction
  • Romantic, colorful and whimsical décor all throughout venue
  • Aerialists, acrobats, burlesque dancers and other live performers
  • Unique arts and crafts vendors, full bars & delicious food
  • Downtown LA location in historic venue, plenty of parking
  • 7PM-4AM, 18+ event, VIP passes available presale

MUSIC: The festival is presented by The Do LaB, one of the premier Burner tribes in Los Angeles, known for throwing fat parties with eclectic lineups and colossal bass. This year’s Lucent L’amour festival has two stages and a keen selection of beautiful beats on the lineup. Both big names and critically acclaimed artists will provide a rousing night of fresh beats for the crowd: Bassnectar, N.A.S.A, Stanton Warriors, Yard Dogs Road Show, Lucent Dossier Experience, Beats Antique, Lazer Sword, Lynx & Janover and Patricio.

ART: Visual arts go hand in hand with music at Lucent L’amour, and you will find a stimulating feast for your eyes all throughout the festival. In addition to a huge art gallery curated by Mike Russek and Deborah Vogt featuring the work of dozens and dozens of artists, we will have a live mural painting by The Mac and Retna as well as a silent art auction, with proceeds going towards the purchase of music and art supplies for under-funded schools. Capping it off is the avant-garde electroart of Andrew Jones, whose inspired creations resonate with the West Coast electronic music community like beats rolling out of a bass bin.

SELF-EXPRESSION: Lucent L’amour promises to create a collision of music, art and creative self-expression. The festival is not a series of performances or a show, but rather an interactive art event where everyone becomes part of the experience, immersed together in one fantastic night of revelry. Come as you are, or deck yourself out in colorful and romantic attire: petticoats, corsets, zoot suits, ruffled parasols, purple polka dot knickers, feathered top hats, green corduroys, striped stockings, and sequined boots- or all of the above.

ROMANCE & MORE: In addition to the music and visual art offerings, Lucent L’amour will dish out a sexy serving of playful décor from the fun to the freaky, captivating theatrical performances, unusual craft vendors, hot munchies and full bar service for those 21+ (event is 18+). VIP passes and tickets are available here, and check the Lucent L’amour website for more videos, photos, music from our featured artists and weekly ticket giveaways.

The Do Lab and El Circo are joining forces this year to create what is sure to be an epic sound camp on the Esplanade. They are throwing a fundraiser on July 31st which will be undoubtedly epic. As far as I know The Do Lab has been absent from the Playa since 2006 so I’m really looking forward to a triumphant return for them.

The Do Lab Lineup for Coachella 2009

I got this a while back from the Do Lab Mailing list. With misting tents and the most face melting beats, its sure to be a hot spot on the polo fields this year. If you are there on friday don’t miss Beats Antique! Straight from Oakland, the band consists of two djs and a professional bellydancer! I saw them open up for Bassnectar and it was amazing. Don’t miss it!

“We can’t wait to show you our new Coachella installation!

Many of you know that every year The Do LaB creates a massive art installation inside the Coachella Arts and Music Festival, complete with our favorite underground music, water misting madness, custom Do LaB structures and performances by the Lucent Dossier Experience. This year we’re going bigger than ever with our vision and lineup. Our installation is, by far, our largest creation yet and we’ve put together a collection of music artists from around the country that are sure to make you dance until you drop. This may be your best chance to see The Do LaB in full effect this summer as we unleash everything we’ve got on our Lucent Misting Oasis. You are officially invited so get a ticket or two and come kick it with us!”

Lightning in a Bottle 2009 Postponed, Possibly Cancelled

From the Do Lab team at the lightning in a bottle website:

After many months of searching for a new location we are sad to report that, as of right now, we have been unable to acquire one, therefore LIB will not be happening this Memorial Day Weekend. Unfortunately the beautiful Live Oak Campground where we have been having the event in previous years is no longer interested in hosting our event.

There is nothing more important to us than our community so rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to make this happen. We want all of you to know that this is just the beginning of our search and we will not stop until Lightning in a Bottle finds a new home… it’s just going to take a bit longer than we had hoped. If all goes well we will still be able to host LIB this year on a new date and at a new location. Please sign up for our mailing list to get regular updates.

Much love,

The Do LaB

UPDATE 3-23-09

It now looks like the Do Lab hasn’t paid to host the domain for lightninginabottle.org anymore. I just checked in again to see if they found a venue yet and now the site is one of those stupid ‘we couldn’t find your website’ splash pages.

Coachella 2009 Lineup Announced

It’s here! It’s here! The Coachella 2009 Lineup has just been announced.

An bit of a throwback-centric lineup this year, and I’m trying to figure out the vibe of what each day will be. In Coachella’s of yore, a big headliner can change the vibe of an entire day. Your 2007 Rage Against the Machine, Sunday night headliner crowd is an entirely different and savage beast compared to your morose Hot Topic garbed nihilists that go to see The Cure on Sunday night in 2009. So we’ll see what happens when Paul McCartney fans, Morrissey fans, and Crystal Method degenerates comingle like Harold and Maude in 115 degree heat.

My Friday picks : Black Keyes, Crystal Method, Crystal Castles, Girl Talk, Silversun Pickups, Peanut Butter Wolf, People Under the Stairs, Felix da Housecat, and Paul McCartney as the man is an effin’ Beatle.

Saturday picks include Thievery Corporation, Atmosphere, TV on the Radio, Henry Rollins and MSTRKRFT. Keep finger’s crossed that they put MSTRKRFT in the Sahara tent on Sunday night for face melting electro party time.

Sunday Picks: Brian Jonestown Massacre, Christopher Lawrence, Public Enemy, Groove Armada, Throbbing Gristle, X, and holy effin’ crap… Roni Size and Reprazent!

In the WTF category, we have Shephard Fairey doing… uhh… live screenprinting? Also, DJ AM and Travis Barker of Blink 182 have some sort of act together, which might actually sound good as they are both pretty legit musicians once you wipe off all the anorexic celebutantes.

No word yet if The Do Lab will be present. For my money their stage is the best kept secret at Coachella. I am still patting myself on the back for ditching the Kaiser Chief’s super suck fest on stage to go see David Starfire tear shit up on the fretless bass. I’m not sure who said it– possibly the good Canuck Dr. Lecky– but Coachella is a great place to see NOT your favorite band. Some of my best moments have been wandering into random tents to see bands I had never heard of. I mean… damn. If it wasn’t for Coachella, I wouldn’t have The Teddybears:
