Come join the Thunder Gumbo arts collective for an 8-bit celebration of the Pioneer Spirit- a bold, dangerous, hedonistic, and sexy six month long expedition that takes place IN ONE NIGHT across four stages of explosive music, impromptu art, mind-bending performance, dark theater, brass bands, massive bass music, sexy techno, aerialists, a real arcade, fire performers, a covered wagon, and minor dysentery at the House of Yes!
Come ford our river, marvel at our fire archery, shake off the typhoid fever, provision yourself at our general store, while square dancing until 5am to DJ’s and live music at the #bestvenueever.
This is a volunteer produced, non-profit fundraiser for modifications to our legendary art car, Thunderius Gumbonium Lahontanii, a meticulous reconstruction of a Pleistocene whale-beast which inhabited ancient Lake Lahontan.
The player assumes the role of a wagon leader guiding his or her party of settlers from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon’s Willamette Valley on the Oregon Trail via a covered wagon in 1848, living life free and clear, under the stars, howling at the moon, substisting on hardtack and moonshine, surrounded by danger, getting lost on the trail, and living life free and open in the wild, wild, wild West.

***PLEASE ALSO NOTE****
A costume requires more effort than buying a Chinese made cowboy hat. You should dress in a way that would embarrass you if you were arrested in it to qualify for the discount at the door.
There will be filming and photography at this event. Your image may appear anywhere after attending. Individuals wishing to hide from the main camera crew are encouraged to visit the Onyx Lounge (aka #worstvenueever) between 2 and 3 am to enjoy an undocumented and unique blackout experience.
****WE LOVE YOU****
Thunder Gumbo events are non-profit and volunteer-run. Proceeds will go towards new art and maintenence costs for Thunderius Gumbonium Lahontanii, our legendary art car.
The magic of Thunder Gumbo comes from being able to work with absurd numbers of artists who contribute their efforts as members of our collective and extended community. Sincere thanks go out to all our artists & organizers for contributing their efforts for free or the barest of stipends for the cause– we are all contributing freely from our resources and abilities to making something bigger than ourselves.
