YES, it’s time for another CROSSFIRE!!

RIGHT on the heels of our wildly successful Steampunk Masquerade fundraiser party this past weekend, we’re already pulling together our next raucous party!


Saturday, May 16, from 9:30pm – 3:30am. Come get tremendous with the irresistibly dance-able sounds from our friends at Opulent Temple, Dusty Rhino and Pink Mammoth! As ever, the DJ lineup from each of these crews is absurd:

OPULENT TEMPLE: Syd Gris, Dulce Vita, Brian Williams, MetaTek

PINK MAMMOTH: Moe Moe, RawC, Zach Waller

DUSY RHINO: Clarkie, DJ Dane, Alvaro, Nugz

Public Works SF, 161 Erie St (off Mission Between Duboce and 14th) in San Francisco. More info here.

Discount pre-sale tickets are still available, but move quick cause these are gonna sell out! The past two Crossfire events have been properly rammed, so pre-sales are highly recommended.

Steampunk Masquerade was a BLAST!

Pun intended. Here’s a panorama shot from near the DJ booth.

And here’s how good the Serpent looked, shoot colored methanol out of her egg!

Damn right, pink fire.

The Serpent Mother hasn’t made a local appearance since the Fire Arts Festival in 2007. We had her out of her box this past weekend, to celebrate the marriage of ultra rockstar FLG members Ray and Diane.

We fired up her methanol-shooting egg for two gorgeous performances. It was loud, hot, and spectacular.

Marco Cochrane, live-sculpting at our fundraiser!

We have a VERY special opportunity happening at our fundraiser! Marco Cochrane, creator of the jaw-dropping sculptures “Bliss Dance” and “Truth Is Beauty,” will be there to exhibit his masterful skills!

Marco is doing a live-sculpting during our Interactive Arts Happy Hour. This is an amazing opportunity to see a 2 hour version of Marco’s creative process, and YOU could be his subject!
Here’s how it works: enter our donation drawing for a chance to model for Marco at our fundraiser. If you win, you’ll be sculpted during the Happy Hour! After the event, you’ll receive a plaster cast of the portrait bust! (If you’re not interested in modeling, or cannot attend the event, you can select someone else to pose, or we can choose for you.)
We are offering 500 tickets and are accepting voluntary donations of $12 each for an opportunity of a lifetime — get your tickets here while they last:
