What's evil? What's dangerous? Two questions that are subjective and steeped in adversarial denial and angst. Join BUS for an exercise in the dangerous and evil. In the vein of the COUM exhibitions, and in honor of people like Genesis Breye P Orridge, Grant Morrison, William Burroughs, Kenneth Anger, and Austin Osman Spare.

We spent the entire day yesterday at Outside Lands, watching all the artists come in and prepare their installations for the weekend music festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. We had one reporter embedded all day with Monica Canilao and her team as they began transforming the woods into a full interactive installation.
