Garage Mahal Art Car Resurrection

A piercing siren wails across the playa… a poofer shoots flames high into the desert night… as it approaches, you make out a bright red triangle, then a Ganesh, and then the Indian-themed double-decker bursts forth - laden with beautifully-clad Burners, getting DOWN to the fiercest, funnest, funkiest beats that you’ve heard in a week full of fierce, fun, funky-ass beats.

If this sounds familiar, you’ve had the pleasure of partying on the Garage Mahal Art Car. Maybe you’ve been on a Freaky Friday Art Tour. Or maybe you’ve enjoyed our classic Tuesday Day Party in camp. Or one of our FUN-draisers here in San Francisco. If so, please consider making a donation to the Garage Mahal Art Car Resurrection Fund in honor of the good times you’ve had.

Last year, after 16 years of hauling dusty LOVE JUNKIES to spread good will and good fun around the playa, her engine finally gave out. But with your help, we can revive her! She’ll need a new heart and some other major mechanical updates, but we’ve got the enthusiasm and Mahalpower to make it happen. We just need funds.

And for the next two weeks, we have not one, but TWO, generous donors who will match your donation! If you donate $10, it’ll become $30. If you donate $100, it’ll become $300. Think of the times you’ve had your soul shined, your mind blown and your heart opened on that car. If every person who ever had a positive experience on that car gave $5, we’d have million$ in a hot desert heartbeat!
