Glitch Slap Lays Smack Down with Sugarpill and jOBOT

Saying that Burning Man will change your life forever in ways you could never possibly imagine is about as cliché as harping on how poorly San Diegans handle rainy-ish weather like today's.

Incidentally, it’s also just as true (these Uptown tanning salons have “hypochondriac hipsters with 'seasonal affective disorder'” written all over them), at least for Ninja Bunniez Entertainment promoter Hopper.

“In 2010, my first year at Burning Man, I danced myself to the medic's tent,” says Hopper, who partially credits sporadic alcohol consumption for her crippling dehydration after seven days in the Black Rock desert.

“Pinch my skin and there was just nothing in there. My heart was beating hard and irregularly because of the severe dehydration and it hurt really bad. It could have been worse had I not been picked up by the medics when I was. I was in and out of consciousness and was losing strength and cramping. They gave me four bags of IV and I barely came to. I was in the medical tent for a whole day and refused to go home. I could barely walk, but I saw the Man burn.”

The following year, a sober Hopper stayed at the Anonymous Village camp along with Ninja Bunniez partner John Boyd, who has been dry for the past two-and-a-half years.

“Besides the sober camps, there’s no other place for people to go to feel comfortable getting help,” Hopper says. “It was strange. I didn’t think anyone would show up. People just show up out of the blue and say, I’m done.”

Now, anticipating her third year at the festival, Hopper is bringing Burning Man to San Diego with Ninja Bunniez’ monthly Glitch Slap night at the Kava Lounge, which has a number of options for booze-free bunniez including herbal tea, organic juices, ginger shots, kombucha, and of course, the chillaxtastical kava root tea.

“The idea is to bring people I meet at the Burn and surround them with local friends,” says Hopper, who warmed the loving backhand of her first Slap in November with San Francisco glitch producer Wala (Amy Buggy).

On Saturday, January 28, Glitch Slap winds up a mean wallop for the other cheek with Los Angeles bouncy bass producer Sugarpill and fellow LA-la-lander jOBOT.

Local basstronauts Puppy Kicker, Starfoxx RSM, and Kurly Burrito will be on hand to help slap your glitch up.

Arrive early, as the show caps at 100.

$8 before 10, $10 after.
