Gertrude took a beating after last years festival run. She's dying to make it back to Electric Forest and needs your support to do it!
What is Gertrude the Jellyfish? She is a music festival rage-staff to say the least. Built out of love for the String Cheese Incident when they headlined Electric Forest Festival 2011, she became a staple beacon at many other festivals last year. She is a 10ft glowing jellyfish that floats where she pleases.
Gertrude turned faces and saw smiles everywhere she went last summer. After her 9th fest at The Get Down in NC, she ironically went down. She became too damaged and frail to even look presentable. You don't want a sad looking jelly do you? Since then she's been sad and alone in the corner of our studio.
A last minute decision and also my instinct, has brought me to my calling -Electric Forest. It's going to take everything I have (and possibly max my credit card) to make it there this year. I'm reaching out to everyone that Gertrude has brought joy and happiness to - I'd love to be floating with all you beautiful faces this summer. Whether it's $1 or more - every little bit is going to help get these tentacles glowing and bouncing again.
By raising the $160, this will help me repair the 90ish feet of elwire, buy more inverters, rebuild the frame, as well as a have couple replacement tentacles. Anything over this will go to buying replacement tentacles, they burn out pretty quick due to all the movement.
Thank you so much - I love all of you! I hope to float with you this summer!
