2pir at NIMBY Funraiser: Oct 16th

October 2nd, 2010 Ed Hunsinger Posted in 2πr, 2pir, Appearances, Events 3,062 Comments »

NIMBY is having a funraiser on Saturday, October 16th! We’ll be there, running 2pir fresh from it’s journey back across the sea from Denmark. A number of other sights, sounds, and experiences will be there as well, including Extra Action Marching Band, CoRE, and the Boiler Bar. Also in attendance will be 4pyre2, trying to one-up us with their 3 dimensional equations. I predict a friendly “flame war” between them and us.

The party starts at 9pm and the cover starts at $16 (if you can afford to donate more, please do!) More info can be found at the Facebook event page.

2pir Packed and On The Way To Denmark

Omega Recoil: Denmark container load from oscar champagne on Vimeo.

After almost 6 months of rebuilding 2pir, testing, doing paperwork, and way too much time at NIMBY, 2pir is on it’s way to Denmark for Smukfest 2010! As you can see above, we spent the last Saturday afternoon stuffing everything into a shipping container for the journey across the ocean.

In the container with 2pir is Omega Recoil‘s Tesla Coil, and Therm‘s brand spanking new robot. Last year we put DDI on a boat. This year we’re putting 2pir in the air. The flame effects and the platform are going to be 3 meters in the air with festival goers milling about underneath them. We’re going to take the beach at Denmark and show the Danes more fire and electricity than they’ve seen in a long time.
