Coachella Media Wrap-up

Hey all’ya all — I’m back from an amazing showing of the Steampunk Treehouse at Coachella.

Last year at this time, when we were first starting the project, I would have never gussed that I’d be able to watch Roger Waters and Prince preform while swinging my feet from the main balcony on  the treehouse.

We had an amazing time.  Good music, good friends, good food.

We got the Treehouse up in a record two days and then spent a third day dilling in the new lighting which looked great.  From then on we just rocked out and hung out in the treehouse.  I know we disappointed allot of people by not letting them up into the house but that was the rule set down by the producers — not us.

We were worried about the Treehouse getting damaged by drunk idiots or an unruly croud but most of the participants were very respectful.  One fool taged the trunk with some lame graffiti but that came off with a touch of gasoline.

I’ve still got to go through my photos (I’ve some some good ones of the spreader bar in action) but in the mean time enjoy these flickr sets from Benna and CTP:

We also got some great press coverage. Check us out in the New York Times (scroll down past Big Rig Jig for an audio interview with Sean O and David S), The LA Times, Fox News (click the video link), Wired, The Sun-Sentinel and The Desert Sun.

More to come.
