Description
Fusebox is once again collaborating with our friends at Blue Genie on the 3rd Annual Danger Derby - the rowdiest closing party of the East Austin Studio Tours.

We're putting together a trackside A-team and could really do with your help. The event is free to attend and run through the community volunteering their time. Please sign up below in your area of interest if you can to join us!

East Austin Studio Tour's most outlandish party, the Blue Genie DANGER DERBY, is back for a third year of destruction at the Blue Genie Headquarters on Saturday, November 22nd! An annual pinewood derby race where ‘art cars’ battle for victory by racing down a two-story hazard course: The track is 20’ tall, 100’ long, and is peppered with a myriad of extreme dangers (fire included!). The first car to make it out ahead after surviving the numerous hazards wins bragging rights on the East Side and one sweet trophy.
