Saturday, November 12, 2005

10:00PM -Late

The Gingerbread Warehouse

1275 Connecticut St San Francisco, CA 94107


Whether you rocked to Lorin on Wednesday night, got some Scumfrog on Thursday, joined thousands to see Oakenfold on Friday night, had peak experience with Tiesto and Lee Coombs on Saturday night, chilled in the dome, marvelled at the flames warming your face as they shot out of the DJ booth, or just stopped by a for a sunrise dance, we hope if you went to Burning Man 2005 you enjoyed the beauty that was the Opulent Temple this year!

We worked hard to provide a beautiful camp with something for everyone. Despite our best efforts, we ended in the red, and would love your support one more time to close the books on 2005. This is our night to reunite in Sacred Dance, to breathe in the dust and the memories and make new ones in honor and celebration for what was (and what will be?) Come get some Sacred Dust!

Sound by El Circo; BM best of slide show; performance; art highlights + more. To ensure the safety of the party, absolutely no hanging out in front of the venue. Please use paid parking lot directly across the street and do not park up the hill on Connecticut. There have been multiple car break ins, etc. up there.

We’ll be liquidating our CD’s from 2004 to make room for 2005, so bring some extra cash to get some aweosme music at heavily discounted prices including music from Hybrid, Scumfrog, D:Fuse and more. The first 100 people to arrive will receive a free raffle ticket for music, T-Shirts, and other prizes. After that anyone that pays at least $15 to get in will as well!

Rock on, and thanks!

Only $10-$20 sliding donation

Opulent Temple Burning Man 2005

Burning Man 2005

Psyche – The Conscious, Subconscious & Unconscious

Black Rock City, NV

2:00 & Esplanade

In troubled times we come together as a community in dance, music, and celebration to stir the soul, move the feet, clear the mind and open the heart. Dance can key into the pulse of the Divine, and hanging out in that pulse is the essence of fully living. Touching the face we had before we were born, so that consciousness infused with Spirit inspires action in the world. …And to turn the tide, we must act….

A Burning Man camp is an honor to provide to the Black Rock Community. To get here, we have been blessed with the support of many of you. Thank you. For those going out to Burning Man, we think you’ll see it was an investment worth putting forward. For us, this is not about partying, this is not about big name DJ’s, it is not about being the best or the brightest… It’s about reaching people, and reaching into people, for love, for community, for Spirit.

What else is there?

If you like what you see, please consider making a donation to the Opulent Temple. Despite our best efforts we have ended the year in the red to provide everyone the most amazing experience possible. We could still use your generous support!

A Dance with Bacchus 2005

Saturday, July 23, 2005

10:00PM – 4:15AM

Terra Gallery

511 Harrison St, San Francisco, CA 94105


Opulent Temple presents: A Dance with Bacchus. A playa bound gathering of Dyonisian revelry.

A toga party meets Burning Man camp fundraiser. The last step into the Psyche. The wine will flow in abundance (and cheap) to get you in the spirit, with a carnival atmosphere of performance, dance, ceremony, decadence, and quality freaks. A true gathering of the musical collective conscious, with 2 rooms of music + chill space. To ensure we don’t have sound restrictions or a bust factor- this party has moved to the Terra Gallery. Please tell a friend!

Moving from playa dreams to reality only happens with the support of the community. The Opulent Temple of Venus has a great project this year with something for everyone in Black Rock City. Thanks for your support!

What does go on in that delightfully off base, non-conformist, shiny color sporting, mind adventuring, dance your ass shakin psyche of yours?

The Scumfrog ( His sets blur the lines of big party house, ballsy tribal, and funky progressive, all augmented by his own live percussion and sometimes vocals, for a truly interactive and unique sound experience that is universally known for rocking dance floors the world over.

+ an innner visual journey by On the Fly Films and special decor by the Opulent Temple goddesses.

Pre-sales only $10 ! Available HERE! -OR- @ BPM Records, corner of Hayes and Fillmore!!! -OR- $15 before midnight in playa digs.
