Greetings from the Box Shop, where FLG has spent the last few months paying the proverbial dues of building large art. The aftermath of any amazing party involves cleaning, organizing, repairing, storing. Never glamorous, always necessary. But meanwhile, we’re up to some really good stuff too, like satisfying and productive meetings (no joke!).
Last night we were fiddling with the design behind some of our Kickstarter thank-you gifts, so they would cut out more cleanly.

(Not gonna give the surprise away though.)
Slag-tites build up over time on the CNC plasma cutter bed.
Stay tuned. Ideas are brewing, events are shaping up…

On Saturday morning, Merope passed her first fire inspection with the new tricked out fire effects, and with the blessings of the SF Fire Marshal, we ran her through the night at the Treasure Island Music Festival.
Merope ready for the show, before the gates opened. Sitting on a circle of dry wood chips, situated beneath a cable of electrical lights and flags made of synthetic fabric. Perfectly safe.
Chilly concert-goers huddle around the hot star for warmth.
… and we got a little nod on SFGate: Meike, sharing the gift of poofing with a TIMF-goer.

Putting the final touches on Merope tonight at the shop, before her next big public showing: this weekend’s Treasure Island Music Festival!
RosaAnna crimpin’ hose.
We seeded Pandora with Saturday night headliner Major Lazer to get in the right state of mind. The working hard state of mind, of course.
John’s up in the heart of the star, attaching the “heart” which shoots sparkles into the fire when we poof…
Anthony lights up for a quick fire test with the latest plumbing changes
We’re all staged to load up the truck and head over tomorrow morning…
work light, leak-test spray, can o’ sparkles… check.
Come find us on the lawn just beyond Bliss Dance. Look for sparkly fire.

We’re really excited to be bringing Merope out for the Treasure Island Music Festival! The performer line-up looks outstanding, and we’re looking forward to a local show where we can show off to a whole new crowd. We’ll be located on a round grassy spot in the middle of the cove area. Come enjoy some fantastic music and shoot fire at the night sky — we’ll run from 6p til 10p.
