Puddles, the sad clown with the golden voice, will be one of the many, incredible performers making this year's Beyond Brookledge more fun than ever.
Beyond Brookledge is an amazing collection of performances, in a spectacular place, put on by a community of artists who are just a ton of fun to hang out with. Every act is wonderful, the entire weekend is an experience. This year Beyond Brookledge will be held May 20-22nd at the Mission Inn, in Riverside, California. I can not wait. I hope my motorcycle makes it this time.
Bob Self, of Baby Tattoo, co-produces this event along with Erika Larsen, and had this to say about Puddles, and the event in general:
A (nearly) 7 foot tall (unfathomably) sad clown with an (unexpectedly) inspiring voice will be serenading attendees of this year’s Beyond Brookledge with a special presentation of Puddles Pity Party during the annual weekend-long magic and vaudeville gathering at the (eerily) gorgeous Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, California May 20th through 22nd. The shadowed corridors and windswept turrets of the castle-like venue will be echoing with melodies and awash with teardrops as Puddles performs the songs that made him famous along with some new surprises that are sure to become infamous. If that sounds like hyperbole, it’s not… the combination of the Mission Inn, Puddles, and all the other Fellini-esque denizens of the ‘round-the-clock theatrical whirlwind is sure to result in something so grand that it will be as hard to describe as it will be impossible to forget. All that plus yummy pie! The ticket price is all-inclusive so the entertainment, the food, the partying, and a bed to dream in are all paid for with the price of admission."

Erika Larsen curates the best live shows I have ever seen. Bob Self puts on the most amazing events. Once a year the two of them throw Beyond Brookledge, an amazing private weekend of magic and mayhem.
There are a lot of high-tech drones and RC planes flooding the market lately, and the innovations are coming so fast on each new iteration, most of them forget one crucial thing: Flying these is supposed to be fun. Here’s an alternative that keeps that ethic firmly in mind: The Moskito Smartphone-Controlled Plane. This thing […]
There are few intellectual exercises better than a good game of chess against a capable opponent, which is why a lot of old hands at the gameplay it online. But there’s still nothing like the tactile thrill of moving a knight into checkmate. (Or sweeping the pieces off dramatically when you lose.) That’s why we’re […]
Got a real music junkie on your list this year? It’s a good bet that they already have a solid pair of earbuds, but probably nothing quite like these Seeds Earphones. Here’s the thing: Wireless earbuds are all the rage right now, and there are a lot of good reasons for that. But for true […]
