July Part 2 -- GOGOL BORDELLO!!!!!!

Last week Michael and I went to see one of our favorite bands, Gogol Bordello. Our band played at a bulgarian bar in Manhattan this spring and we made some contacts with a few of the GB people. So we decided we wanted to make up a bunch of yummy food ( okay Michael made a bunch of food...) and feed the band before the show. I few emails and a phone call from Pedro ( the percussionist) later and we have the okay. we were just hoping to get on the guest list, but after a few of them tasted the food, we were slipped five all access back stage passes and spent quite a bit a time with each of the members, with the exception of eugene who hid out most of the time, but thanked us profusely at the end of the night and closed with an excited "fuck yeah!!!" in reference to michael's cooking. It was a great night and one of the best performances i've ever seen!! it made me happy, but depressed that our band wasn't together anymore. holy!holy!holy! could of been opening for them or touring with a number of other bands that had posed interest... well, we will see what happens! In the mean time Michael and I will continue to write more and more songs and eventually the other musicians will come out of the woodwork... maybe some kick-ass backup singers and dancers too!!!

The flag that Pedro is waving is our circle-a flag that usually hangs off our front porch. Michael brought it with us and he never passed up an opportunity!!
