MELT is a grassroots artist collective with a goal of informing the zeitgeist and connecting people through artistic collaborations. It is also the brainchild of a fellow board member and a dear friend. MELT has thrown parties at Coachella and throws monthly events at the Orpheum Theatre in Flagstaff, Arizona.


You can read more about MELT here:

http://www.meltflagstaff.com/#!

You'll notice that the site offers a calendar of events, photos, videos and a plethora of multimedia.

Take a listen to some of the AMAZING sets put forth by MELT artists:

Indulge your eyes as well as your ears with these MELT videos:

I personally will make it to MELT every time I'm logistically able to do so. I've never experienced such an inclusive display of visual and aural masterings. It is, essentially, a grand celebration of creativity, sound and movement.

Heading up to Flag this afternoon. Entertaining the notion of seeing Helmet this evening. Anybody going up early? Any Flagstaff boardies have suggestions for other fun times tonight?

See everyone tomorrow! My wife and I will have extra couch/floor space if anyone needs somewhere to stay. Our place is just outside of town in Kachina Village.

One important factor that has been left out regarding MELT is:

This monthly electronic music and art show was founded by DJs and artists from the Coachella message board.

PS July would be an even better month Jen, because it is our anniversary and everyone from LA will be playing again.

oh. that could be important.

turns out flying to/from flagstaff isn't that much more expensive than phoenix that weekend.

If you fly into Flag, you'll have to connect in PHX and they'll put you on one of those 20 seater propeller planes. If you're squeamish, I don't recommend it.

Gribbz
05-22-2011, 06:17 PM
I had an amazing weekend! The Housewerk crew really threw it down. The Orpheum theater is a fantastic venue... glad you guys made the decision to upgrade.


Can't wait till July.

chairmenmeow47
05-23-2011, 11:38 AM
i am so sorry for crashing out saturday night guys, i was extremely tired. i'm lame.

as far as july, if it's a friday, i will not be coming up, but i can make saturday. i can only do saturday events. keep me posted.

also, apparently the amtrak train from LA to flagstaff runs much more frequently than the one to phoenix. i believe one of the many zack's took it this time around. and you can drink on the train!!! something to consider. the times are usually kinda funky, but it would save you a drive.

lol, I know, I find I am not quite as picky when already drunk so I will drink anything that shows up in a shot glass. I have never liked whiskey so I am not sure why I didn't request something different.

It was still a great time, and surprisingly enough I didn't have too much of a hangover.

Curious, were any other melt guests staying at the rodeway inn on Milton? If so, and you were in room 118 :thu because apparently your world was getting rocked for hours.

Oh yeah - what is the hip/cheap hotel to stay at for Melt?

I believe the Howard Johnson that's near by is like $50 bucks a night. Not sure if there's anything cheaper.

The rodeway inn was $50 and it's also pretty close.

Not cheap, but hip...

We ate at the excellent Thai restaurant which is connected to the lobby of the hotel. They also have a martini/espresso bar and a Reagle Beagle style lounge. Room rates for the summer start at $100.

It's also only two blocks away from the venue.

05-23-2011, 03:10 PM
I would just like to voice my approval for the drink prices in Arizona. They beat LA/Hollywood drinking prices by a mile so expect me to coerce some of you into taking shots with me. You can buy, like, five drinks in Flagstaff for the price of one drink in Hollywood.

NachoCat
05-23-2011, 03:14 PM
Depends where you go. If you are talking about Flag then yeah you can probably find cheap drinks just about anywhere. I can assure you though if you are out in Phoenix or Scottsdale there are plenty of places you you can get raped by $9 drinks.

chairmenmeow47
05-23-2011, 03:18 PM
i've always wanted to stay at the monte vista, but it's always been pricey when i've checked.

the hojo we stayed at had exceptionally comfortable beds, and even had a small table/chairs. i really liked it. amy booked, she can post the info. like matt said, it was like $50 though.

I.F.A.
05-23-2011, 03:31 PM
It's the HoJo on Lucky Lane. I also stayed there the last time I went to Melt, and the room was $80 (still the cheapest room in the city - it was ski season). This time it was $54 with tax.

The Little America is pretty awesome and scary. Long hallways covered in red and gold wallpaper, and old school 70's decorations in the rooms. I kept waiting for a kid to come around the corner on a bigwheel. Not sure how much it is in the summer though.

Some of the hotels (like the one Captn mentioned) looked amazingly awesome in their shabby 1970's decor. I'm guessing they wouldn't love huge groups of people loitering around all night though.

When is a good time of year to visit the Grand Canyon? Maybe early October, or March/April?

westcoastpirate
06-14-2011, 07:59 PM
FYI, there's a hostel in downtown Flagstaff walking distance to MELT that is pretty nice and has cheap private rooms with your own bathroom/shower. They also have dorm style rooms for up to like 8 people with a bathroom/shower in the room you can reserve, so depending on the amount of people going that might work.

It is much cooler up there so November through February there is chances of snow on the ground, which would be cool to see, but if you don't like to be cold I would hit it up in the summer. At nights it is even cold in the summer.

Yeah, I read about that skywalk thing on travel blogs when it was first opened, and even though I have never been there, I already sort of hate it in concept. The idea of taking one of our nation's great natural wonders and building a tacky commercial carnival ride over the side of it doesn't really sit well with me.

Not to mention that they don't allow visitors to bring their own cameras, which is just lame.

Gribbz
06-15-2011, 11:17 AM
I honestly have very little interest in visiting anyway. Havasupai is the way to go.

Courtney
06-15-2011, 11:32 AM
They have staff who will take your photograph and then sell you the images at hugely inflated prices. They probably don't allow you to take your own cameras so that more people will buy the staff-taken pictures.

chiapet
06-15-2011, 12:03 PM
That's weird. You mean at the skywalk specifically, right?

I agree it's a shame to throw an ugly man made structure on top of the canyon... I'd still be tempted to check it out though if I were already there. I mean, otherwise, I probably could not be convinced to get within 10' of the edge...

The skywalk is not located in Grand Canyon National Park, it's located on private land outside the park boundary. You can bring your own camera into Grand Canyon National Park and take as many pictures as you want with no fees.

M Sparks
06-20-2011, 10:26 AM
Yes, that thing is not at "The Grand Canyon" that people picture. The south rim is where the majority of tourists visit...they have a hotel and restaurant there and the train comes to within a few hundred feet of the rim. The north rim is the more rugged area, more for camping, and it closes in the winter.

That skywalk thing is at what they call the "west rim". It's what the Hualapai tribe has instead of a casino. This will give you an idea of how much less majestic it is...

I will be driving up on Saturday afternoon, Amyzzz will be riding with me, if anyone else is looking for a ride from Phoenix to Flagstaff on Saturday let me know. I have room for 2 more if needed.

I'm might have to take you up on this, I'm looking up my flight this week...

Have you done that before? I would be entirely too paranoid. Just know, if you make it out I got you covered for smoke. :)

Nope... Just got two new tires for my car but my clutch is going out too (driving is out of the question) and tickets for flights were outrageous... Looks like I will be in spirit.

It would take a miracle for me to go but I really wish I could...

Good point, although I was thinking more bar/restaraunt type drinking closer to the venue, but a hotel parking lot drink fest sounds better/cheaper. :)

I just need to make sure to put food in my stomach prior to too much booze. Responsible drinking, so lame.

loca, I assume (at least some) people will be going for dinner sometime between check-in and MELT. I definitely will, even if it's for something light.

I will definitely be going to dinner somewhere after the DJs do soundcheck. I believe there are a lot of places within walking distance of the Orpheum.

Amy - the best thing about the Dirty Epic DJs is that the style is all over the board. We're going to be hearing some sweet tech-house from Moo, Andrew usually plays progressive house, HEADSTRUCK is going to make the dance floor bloody with breakbeats...it's going to be awesome.

Booo. :( I told you guys I wouldn't be there before 10... My flight ended up being late, so I didn't get there until almost 10:30. Glad you were still there, Mark. (And sorry I missed you, Marc).



This weekend was wonderful. Kudos to AJ (and of course all the DJs and artists). I will definitely make the trek from SF again some time. For now, I feel pretty properly melted. :)

Apologies regarding getting to Casey Moore's so late...coordinating dinner and travel and meet up for how many of us there were pushed things quite back.

Hehe, regarding MELT: Sebastian's dad, stepmom, and Spanish speaking step-grandparents actually spent the weekend vacationing in Flagstaff as well. We had dinner with them last night and Grandpa asked if we had gone to "The Melting Party" downtown. Apparently they walked by the venue as we were all gathered outside waiting for the doors to open. We tried to convince them to go again next month :)

amyzzz
07-26-2011, 10:11 AM
Is Sebastian originally from Chandler (AZ)? He sat down net to me at some point, and I think he said that, and I was confused. I thought he was from California like everyone else. :)

He's living in Chandler for the next month with his dad and new baby sister.
