last i heard he was all high on peyote and howling with the wolves wandering off into the moonlight


I would love to regale you with tales of my post listening party desert wanderings... the peyote vision quest, the saucers that appeared from behind a red moon, losing my iPad somewhere along the jacquard causeway, the secret "hooper bay" tape I discovered inside the airstream trailer...

But actually I drove home to LA at lightning speed, ate some tacos and passed out.

I didn't expect to be the first to arrive. I had thought I'd leave LA around noon, but when I woke up the anticipation was too much and I felt like getting my show on the road.

The desert is beautiful and the drive is great once you're on the 15... the landscape really lights up your brain. I stopped in Yermo and took some pics at the RFTD gas station, just a few miles ahead of the waterpark. Why don't I drive out this way more often?

When I got to the waterpark there was only 1 car in the lot and a white truck drove out to meet me... security or a caretaker. He asked what I was doing there. I meekly said something confusing along the lines of "supposed to meet some friends here", which I realized does nothing to allay suspicion that I'm trafficking in drugs or white slaves. He asked what friends and I continued "some are coming in from Vegas and others from LA… sort of an event… some record company folks." Bingo. He assumed I was with the record company guys and had me follow him out to the side where the trailer had just arrived and one of the gentlemen from Warp was coordinating.

I parked just far enough away from the people that I could buy some time, pretended to be on the phone and waved off my caretaker with a sort of thanks. The 3 folks near the trailer were examining me and I fiddled around a bit before exiting the car, nonchalantly heading into the park with camera in hand.

After a few minutes, one of the gents from Warp came over, confirmed that I was the first to arrive, and asked if I would avoid any major spoilers by tweeting what I was seeing in the set up. He wouldn't spill exactly what they were up to beyond an "event" and how they came to choose the spot and I was kind of happy to maintain my own element of surprise too. Wasn't quite sure what to say about the matter as almost anything I tweeted was going to sound cryptic, so rather than say "at least two Warp folks, light security and an airstream trailer" I just said "I've been asked to be discrete…"

I had the feeling I might be trespassing to a degree and that others arriving might not be able to get in, but that turned out to be a non issue. So yeah… I tried to lay low and avoid being hustled out ahead of any larger set-up that might be happening.

I was torn between a desire to unplug and explore a bit and the growing chorus of voices from the internet desiring updates. Arriving early I felt a de facto obligation to provide some kind of a signal. At some point I set up a google hangout which only kind of sorta worked and was clearly going to chew through my iPad mini's battery. Later installing ustream worked a lot better. I felt a bit like a cyborg, uncomfortably juggling my iDevices, so I'm a little bummed at not being fully present to meet more of the peoples who showed up. My impression of our little crowd is that BoC fans are quality folks all around, which comes as no surprise.

As for the listening… the record is awesome. As darkly sublime as one could hope.

I hope I didn't cross any lines or piss off anyone at Warp or the brothers with my broadcast. I was startled to see after the fact that A) ustream saves that stuff and B) the image and audio quality are waaay better than I would've guessed. I've avoided listing to too much spoiler-ing of the record and even RFTD isn't in rotation for my listening yet till I can lay down with the full album in the right frame of mind and with my good headphones -- so I hope my broadcast doesn't diminish the impact for anyone's first listen of the LP.

Big thanks to everyone that poked me here and on twitter (and a few of you who subscribed to my coffee!). Big thanks to the absurdly good battery life of the iPad mini. Big thanks to Warp and Boards of Canada for showing their love of the fans. I'm really looking forward to that giant "BoC Set" of old unreleased tapes that the saucer people told me about.

Seriously you guys gotta hand it to Tonx!!! This cat clued almost everyone in on what was going on at this event. Im telling you this took a lot of self motivation on his part because the last thing I would want to do is live tweet, video, and be constantly taking pictures of an event I so dearly wanted to get lost in. I wanted to come up to you but you looked like you were in the zone and I didn't wanna mess up your flow. Tonx you worked hard!! The biggest thing is that it seemed that you had the entire BOC community on your shoulders... Good job..Talk about self sacrifice, he nailed it!! He did this so others online could enjoy this event through him. PROPS!

Edit**Damn I didn't realized I quoted...sorry for the long quote

Agreed. Thanks a lot Tonx, you really made the event extend to a hell of a lot more people than it otherwise would. I felt a part of it thanks to you. Cheers.

Are you kidding? You sir are a LEGEND. You allowed almost 1300 other deliriously happy BOC fans take part in a magical moment, live, even though we couldn't be there in person.

Stellar work. Kudos.

As for diminishing anyone's first listen, heck we all had the option of the "off" button any time we wanted it.

the only thing you did for me tonx is make my raging boner even harder

besides the wind really dickered with the sound which is not a complaint by any means. you'd need a real good camera with a pop shield to break through the desert winds yesterday

Can someone tell me what was the trailer for?

Did the brothers pop out at the end, with candy and vinyl records for everyone?

Tonx, thanks so much for your work. I haven't gotten to do anything this big, but juggling the needs of the masses with your own fun is not easy.

You've done a man's job, sir. I hope you get at least $200 for your Warp water. I don't even want to think about what the Warp ice would have been worth. :)

The trailer hid the sound crew and equipment so that all you saw was the truck/trailer and speakers, the people listening and the desolation. The Warp guy did bring out posters and stickers for everyone after. They also provided water for the silly folks who come out to the desert without any. There were no concessions. Your money's no good at a BOC listening party. Heheheh
