Free Ride in a Burning Man Art Car

Vegas: Take a Free Ride in a Burning Man Art Car

Lyft and Zappos have teamed up to bring a Burning Man experience to life for anyone in Las Vegas. At Burning Man, one of the hallmark experiences is touring art erected across miles and miles of desert. This activity gave birth to the modern art car movement. Selecting how you ride to the art — be it a ducky, rhino, or Star Wars spacecraft — is a joyful representation of what you love.

Starting on July 7 and running through the entire month, Las Vegans and tourists alike are invited to head downtown to take a free ride on a 20-foot dragon Burning Man art car. The Dragon Art Car will be on a fixed route and will feature a showcase of many of DTLV’s unique art installations, including Big Rig Jig, The Mantis, and a mural by Shepard Fairey.

How To Take A Ride

1. Head to the Fremont East area in Downtown Las Vegas on the following weekends: July 7-8; July 14-15; July 21-22; July 28-29.

2. Open the Lyft app to find “Dragon Mode.”

5. Check in with your Lyft team member to sign your waiver and grab a wristband to reserve your spot in the queue. Passengers will be called on a first-come, first-served basis.

About the band:

Xeb brings together former and original members of Third Eye Blind. Kevin Cadogan, Tony Fredianelli and Arion Salazar’s contributions span 17 years of the band’s history.

Cadogan, who was a signatory to Third Eye Blind’s Elektra record deal, performed lead guitar and composed the music to 10 of the 14 songs on 3eb’s 1997 Self Titled debut album which sold 6x platinum. Cadogan also composed 6 songs on 3eb’s 2x platinum selling sophomore album ‘Blue’ including the fan favorite “Wounded”. Cadogan has been hailed as a Master Innovator by Guitar Player Magazine and toured from ’96-’99 performing his co-authored radio hits “How’s It Going To Be”, “Graduate”, and “Losing A Whole Year”.

In San Francisco 1993/94, they wrote and performed under the name Third Eye Blind until Fredianelli exited the band that same year, but not before contributing musical production elements to songs on the debut such as “Motorcycle Drive By” and the hit “Semi Charmed Life”. Fredianelli later contributed his signature backing vocals and guitar, ushering in a new sound for Third Eye Blind that carried through the fourth album. Fredianelli composed the music to many songs on the certified gold album ‘Out Of The Vain’. His co-authored radio hits include “Blinded”, “Non-Dairy Creamer” and 2009’s “Bonfire” from the #1 selling album ‘Ursa Major’.

Grammy nominated Bassist and composer Arion Salazar co-wrote many songs (credited and un-credited) throughout the band’s career including the hit “Never Let You Go” along with other fan favorites spanning the bands career. Salazar is credited as a producer on Third Eye Blind’s ‘Blue’ and ‘Out Of The Vein’ albums and is known for his signature use of double/effected bass tracking and vintage keyboards.
