Put on your Red Light!!!

This is an age 21 & older event.

It's Wes Smith Yo! Trusts Unicorns? Next stop - Santa Monica, CA

The magic fugu tour keep breathing new life to the US and beyond packing venues to the gills and rocking the electric funkalicious. This time I catch up with Dave Loomstein, aka Dave Loomer, of The Cruz Coalition. Cruz Coalition (in conjunction with Camp Charlie) is present the 4th annual “In Unicorns We Trust”. This is a fundraiser for a famous Burning Man camp, Camp Charlie, this Friday in Santa Monica. Loomer - In Unicorns We Trust

Tell me of your first Burning Man experience:

A friend convinced me to go and I had an amazing life changing experience. I was a music aficionado forever but I was not into making music at the time other than mix tapes. When i returned from my first burn I started DJing and producing music immediately and have been doing it ever since. This year’s Burning Man will be my tenth in a row.

Camp Charlie is a theme camp and art car at Burning Man. Tell me a short history of this camp:

Camp Charlie was developed around Charlie the unicorn cartoon. The art car is a mainstay, it’s a huge car with great sound. It’s super fun and it is both a labor of love and of patience.

Loomer- Unicorn day

How did you become a Camp Charlie camper & enthusiast aka a Unicorn?

Charlie is my third camp so far. You could call me “polycamperous" with another camp called Nutz. It started as a no expectations journey, but it became about music so I go to the camp I am most closely aligned with musically. Also to get different flavors of the burn you truly need exposure to different people and experiences.

Loomer- Unicorn Night

Tell us about the Cruz Coalition:

This is my company and we manage events including local event production located in Santa Monica.

You just got back from EDC. Tell us what you did there:

Cruz Coalition has worked the last seven EDC’s in Los Angeles and five in Vegas doing the production aspect for EDC. From acquiring the entertainers to building the stages. It can be anything from building, staffing, biz management, booking, schedules, artist relations, etc.

Let’s talk about “In Unicorns We Trust”, the event this weekend:

This is Cruz Coalition’s 3rd co production of “IUWT” with Camp Charlie and we are really excited- the event is in an underground art and event space that only has rare and special events there. You have to work a lot of connections and relationships to even be able to throw an event here. The whole lineup is made up of a combination of resident djs, local headliners and guest djs. You will see that Wes is coming into his own as a headliner and we are really happy to see him join us for this one. He has been such an advocate for Camp Charlie since his first time last year.

We add a LOT of variety to offer the people a lot of possibilities throughout the night. It’s a really sweet event that brings a lot of community energy… we as unicorns bring a lot of energy and thunder to everything we do, it’s going to be one to remember.

Loomer- unicorn so hard

Any advice to me as a first time Unicorn this year at Burning Man?

Get there early and see it grow, a complete metamorphosis. It’s a pleasure to be a part of it and the community keeps expanding. Get into the spirit, enjoy and participate. It’s about the experience and while you are part of an ensemble, you still have to go and make your own great experience. When it’s like that - you need to be about you. If it’s not an experience you cannot immerse yourself 100% with then it’s not your experience.

Peace Out...

Thank you, Dave. We really appreciate your time and wish you the best of luck with the event. You can catch Dave aka DJ Loomer at "In Unicorns We Trust" and for those of you outside of Cali, here is his Stanton Warriors Rebel Bass Tour mix for your listening pleasure.
