Once more into the fantastic go we! Once more into the glistening mouth of wonderment, and then aloft among cellophane flowers and cackling birds, go we! Once more the clock strikes eleventeen! Once more the pretty lady in the moon beckons and smiles! Once again into the Lucent Dossier Experience go we! Go we! Oh for heavens’ sake, go “weeeeeeeeeee!!”

If you’ve ever taken shelter under a stack of novels by Lewis Carroll, M.C. Escher, Edward Gorey, Robert Heinlein, and Shel Silverstein, and then rested your head upon a two foot clown nose, and fallen asleep there for a thousand years, and THEN (and this part is key) let yourself dream, you’ve totally been here before.

I spent much of Coachella camping, hanging out, dancing, eating and playing at The Do Lab stage & misting oasis with the beautiful cast of characters from Lucent Dossier, a theatrical performance troupe unique in this universe- and probably another few dimensions as well.

What impressed me the most was how very, very hard this group works day and night to bring elements of play into your life and to give you a taste of the absurd. It may look like all fun and games, and much of it is, but these ladies and gentlemen work their behinds off to create what was for many the highlight of Coachella 2010. Continue reading

Check out Jamie Kelly’s List on Metrowise right here.

It is called “the complete guide” so you know it is missing a few shows, but apparently festival seasons starts this very weekend with the Valentine’s Day street party Lucent L’Amour, featuring Z Trip, Adam Freeland, Lucent Dossier, the art of Andrew Jones and more! 

My top pick? Lightning In A Bottle in Santa Barbara. No lineup yet, but just wait- should be super fatty.
