Know Your Rights! Law Enforcement & BRC

Know Your Rights! Law Enforcement & BRC

The most important thing is to know your rights in interactions with LEO, know the right questions to ask to give you back control, while being polite, and lessen their intimidation on you and/or your party. This is so important that I include the ACLU Know Your Rights information in the RSL Music Guide. And read this year’s Jackrabbit Speaks Law Enforcement issue. PLEASE share this card with campmates, friends and others in your community so they can be best prepared to be calm and informed of their rights should LEO stop and question them. This is not legal advice. This is information discussing the general state of the law. We urge you to consult a lawyer for legal advice about a particular legal question or issue you may have. If you believe you are coerced into giving consent for a search, or that you are searched without probable cause, you may wish to contact the ACLU of Nevada at...

2016 Music Guide Kickstarter is Live!

2016 Music Guide Kickstarter is Live!

Donate to my Kickstarter! It’s time to create this year’s music guide for the playa, and I need your help getting it there. Every donation gets the guide closer to the playa. Why Kickstarter? Simply, the guide has grown from a one page spreadsheet to more than a 32 page booklet. And I believe in paying artists for their work, so I am paying my graphic designer. It’s also a short turn around time from submission deadline to driving the final product out to the playa for you to pick up at BMIR near Center Camp and printing with fast turn around time costs. Please donate to my Kickstarter this year to help bring the the 2016 music guide to Black Rock City and share this with your friends and campmates! See you out on the playa! And do sign up for my newsletter (at the top of the page) to receive the finished digital guide first! Donate to my...

Where’s the RSL Music Guide?

Where’s the RSL Music Guide?

Panic not! Sit tight! The guide, as is tradition, is posted for download here on my blog the Tuesday before Burning Man’s gate opens. Why on Tuesday? Back when I began the guide, the first day of early arrival was the Wednesday before gate opened. So, I posted the guide on Tuesday for those leaving for the playa. To be the first to notified when the guide is ready for download, sign up for my free Rock Star Librarian Newsletter! You may also pick up a print copy, while supplies last, on playa at BMIR radio station’s camp on Esplanade and 545 near the DMV, starting Saturday pre-gate. (aka after I arrive with them on playa and deliver them to BMIR!) Listen to BMIR live on the playa now! And don’t forget to download or update the 2016 version of the Time to Burn iOS / Android app. It includes all of the submitted playa events online, the music guide and...
