Somebody yelled out for Strung bean Jean but they didn’t play it.

Definitely a top five B & S song for me.

No way, did you look at the encore for Michigan? DC is the worst so far.

Philly got Photo Jenny, that's super rare.

Going to a B&S gig these days is like going to a Tori Amos show - you either will have a great setlist, or a bad one.

Ok so the show I saw was the absolute worst? Got it. Thanks.

Do you know how ridiculous you sound and also how socially tone deaf?

Like bro are you on a crusade to tear down a show you weren’t even at that someone else enjoyed?

What the fuck is wrong with you?

Extraordinary Cinema: Scream of My Blood: A Gogol Bordello Story

 JUSTICE FORUM (GENERAL ADMISSION)

Join us for FREE film screenings in the Justice Forum at the REACH. Scream of My Blood: A Gogol Bordello Story is an intimate, career-spanning portrait of Ukrainian immigrant and punk legend Eugene Hütz. Featuring a post-show film Q&A with directors Nate Pommer and Eric Weinrib, producer Beverly Chase, and Eugene Hütz.

Online advance reservations for a given performance date will open on a rolling basis, opening every Wednesday two weeks out from the date.



So we arrived a half hour in advance and a small line was forming for this. It was obvious that it wasn't going to "sell out," so we just waited on benches rather than standing in line. While waiting, I was secretly hoping that my favorite Ukranian Sweetcell had flown in for this viewing, but it appeared that was not the case. About five minutes prior to doors, we went to the bathroom and proceeded to join the end of the line.

As I came out of the bathroom, I spotted a bald old guy in a beanie hat arriving. Obviously not as exciting as if it were Sweetcell, who is much more handsome and has much better hair, but still sort of exciting to see local hardcore legend Ian. He proceed to go to the box office and pick up his tickets. I quickly started planning what kind of small talk I could make with him (he'd probably want to talk about Belle and Sebastian setlists and what kind of scooter Stuart rides around on, right?) because it was obvious he'd be joining the end of the line at the same time we would.

But alas, he cut into the middle of the line, presumably in front of some punk rock kiss ass. Whatever happened to punks use the back door? A couple minutes later, Eugene Hutz arrived and proceeded to start chatting with Ian.

And then the doors opened and the movie commenced. I'm not a huge Gogol Bordello fan (I'm the kind of fan who would shout "Start Wearing Purple" if requested were solicited.), but I did see them at the Bumbershoot festival in the early 2000's, so I'm aware of what an awesome live force they are. Anyway, the film was excellent. Check it out when and if you can. I think they're still in the film festival stage, and hopefully then the distribution happens. At least that's what the director said.

After the film and Q&A will the director. Eugene and Sergey took the stage and played 6-8 (I didn't count) songs, for a mini acoustic set. (My wife liked the film much more than the live set, I enjoyed both very much.) I was hoping Ian would hop onstage when they did a Fugazi cover, but alas he didn't. Eugene took requests from the crowd. Several requests for "Start Wearing Purple" were shouted out (not me), but he said he didn't want to play that because you can hear that on any jukebox in the world. But he did play other requests. Then, like that, it was over, and I headed home for some birthday cake and ice cream and a bottle of Rusty Nail from Fremont Brewing.

Thanks, I'm betting it will be right up your alley.

And thanks, BD is actually tomorrow, but too much going on to celebrate on a Tuesday.

t’s been awhile since I’ve walked through a long dark hallway into a basement rock club, but when by total happenstance a band touring one of your favorite new albums is playing mere minutes from where you are staying you make the effort to check out a new venue.

Elephant Stone
The Flying Duck
Glasgow 

I’ve been really enjoying the bands new Beatlesque psychedelic pop album and was eager to see the band live.

Show started with Rishi doing a sitar intro and over a little over a 90 minute set they performed songs from several of their albums, highlighting the new album “Back Into The Dream”.  The band was just great live, with just the right amount of sitar as Rishi's primary instrument live is bass. Got some extended jamming out, but for the most part marvelous psychedelic pop songs.  I would say the venue was about the size and feel of the old Red Room at the Black Cat. 

One think I've notice ids how many UK venues have strict curfews so Elephant Stone was done promptly at 10pm

and yes I had been roaming around Scotland which meant of course two of my favorite Scottish bands were touring the US,,,

While not seeing a show there, a manager at the much better know Glasgow club King Tut's let us peek inside to check it out.  Was surprised to find out how small it was and they have over the years managed to book many acts that went on to much bigger venues.  It's on par with Atlantis is terms of size.

Went into a couple record stores and yikes is vinyl expensive over there and the much cheaper CDs appear mainly available at the chains like HMV. If I really wanted to spend the time looking, could have found some real bargains on slightly older CDs which get marked down in price.

and the weather was just great most of the time, only one really rainy day...
