Beautiful Shrine, Coachella 2007
On Wednesday, October 5th at 4:30am, our dear friend, hobo clown, father of Lucent, artist, man of wisdom, our 'ol pal Shrine was admitted to the emergency room after a near fatal accident. He has been in ICU since then battling for his life.

Shrine has touched the hearts and lives of so many people across the world. From his distinctly original American folk art that is the interior of the House Of Blues, his mad capped performing madness and contribution to Lucent Dossier to his BEAUTIFUL and majestic temples that have risen at festivals all over the world, all constructed from found, recycled and trash materials, this man is a treasure to the planet.

As we prepare for The Palace, October 21st and 22nd, our hearts are heavy and filled with wanting to be near him and devoted to his recovery. Like most artists, he has no insurance and so we have decided to dedicate both our shows to him and give all proceeds to his medical bill fund.

Anyone who knows Shrine knows he loves shenanigans, loves to get wild and lives to explore all human heart opening experiences. So in his honor that's exactly what we're gonna do!
We will open the doors at 7:30pm and have raffles, foot massages, games and original Shrine art work for auction. And more then all that, we'll come together and celebrate the man we love.
