The Rock Star Librarian (RSL) Music Guide connects you to Black Rock City's booty shaking beats in minutes. Every listing that has appeared in this guide has been no easy feat, but it's all been worth it when I see your happy smiles and dusty dancing out on the playa.

This is my tenth year curating Burner music in one central place.The good news: the music guide as grown exponentially with the music explosion in the city.  The hard part is keeping up with the growth. I’m dedicated to continuing this effort because it’s so much fun for us all.

  • $2000 graphic design (with a Burner!) 
  • $2000 printing
  • $500 incentives
  • $500 video production, Kickstarter consultation, promotion and marketing fees (with a Burner!)

Stretch Goals

Any donations raised over our goal will go directly to printing more guides to bring to the playa. 

Risks and challenges

Over the past ten years, the production of the guide has changed dramatically. What once was a one-page spreadsheet shared among camp mates has now turned into a database-supported 32-page booklet and growing! Wow!

The challenges: The fast turn-around time from deadline to print product is an adrenaline rush of epic proportions. There are no simple, hourly grid schedules there and music pumps throughout our city 24 hours a day the entire week.

By the time the submission deadline hits, I spend all days and nights leading up to Burning Man sleep deprived into the wee hours, along with my graphic designer, reviewing the unique scheduling, all while continuing my day job as a mild mannered librarian and a devoted mother and wife.
