Jerk Church Cathedral in Black Rock City

Jerk Church is built upon the rock of communal comfort from singing our worries away as we pass a cup and share a laugh with friends.

The Jerk Church Cathedral is built on the shifting dust of the Black Rock Desert; a quick-build, low cost, fun-sized country church with weddings, bars, and sustainable jackassery all week long. 

What we need:

Your contributions allow us to purchase our raw materials and the transportation to bring the pre-built Cathedral to playa. In turn, you get your ass down to the cathedral and come have a great time with us. For those with the means to give generously, we have a set of valuable perks, listed below.

The Cathedral is designed by Phil Mitchell (aka Boyfriend). Click here to watch his one-minute design synopsis, without pants

We estimate our material, transport, and storage costs will be around $12,000. We've already raised some of it but could really use your help!

This had better be a good story, or you're not getting a dime. 

Yeah, so we're having a couple of weddings. And Jerk Church is kinda famous because we're so awesome. It definitely rubs off - every week we gather to break bread and share whiskey, and our following has grown after our show at DNA Lounge and recent profile in the SF Chronicle. 

Jerk Cathedral will be located at 5:45 and F in Black Rock City, but only with your help. 

Why? Is this an art project?

We love to make music. We love to sing. We especially love it when others join in, hoisting drinks and lifting voices. Everyone is welcome, all are encouraged to tithe. If art is living out loud, sure - it's an art project.

Get the word out on the street.

Blues Brothers style. With this favor from you, we'll put on a hell of a show in kind. Tweet this link, tell your friends, and come visit us in Black Rock City and enjoy the perks we have for various donation levels.
