Know Your Rights! Law Enforcement & BRC

Know Your Rights! Law Enforcement & BRC

By on Aug 19, 2016 in Burning Man, Featured, Music, Rock Star Librarian, Rock Star Librarian Music Guide | 0 comments

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...

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...

The Music of Burning Man Documentary

The Music of Burning Man Documentary

In 2013 I had the lovely opportunity to sit down for an interview with Liz Margerum, videographer for the Reno Gazette Journal, to talk about music on the playa. And so did several other familiar to you faces and camps that work hard to bring you dust beats to make you shake it. Thank you, Liz, for capturing the beauty of the music and the people behind. If you missed it last Fall, Liz and the Reno Gazette have graciously re-posted the documentary for your enjoyment....
