Burning Man Bummer: Ticket Lottery Won't Fill Demand 

Wednesday, Feb 8 2012

Burning Man's first-ever ticket lottery has had far more requests for tickets than the 40,000 made available. What does this mean?

• Princess GlitterSparkle is bummed

• No one will ever get to go to Burning Man again, ever

• San Franciscans finally have something other than Ross Mirkarimi to talk about

• This empirical evidence that not every entrant wins a lottery shakes the scientific world

• So many people want to go to Burning Man that it has clearly failed as a social movement

• For the next eight months, everybody who knows anybody who works for Burning Man will be bombarded with requests to hook them up

• One of four bacon-themed camps may not make it out this year

• By July there will be a tidal wave of surplus tickets as people decide not to go ... just like every year

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
