Just got back from Gogol Bordello.

It was a 2 1/2 hour show, plus the opener. We were on the outer cusp of wine-spitting-distance. The entire venue was. Cost us like $20.

It was awesome.

Pre Edit Edit: I'm starting to suspect the local venue has a deal where the doors open at 7pm, but the band can't start before 9pm. Gotta milk those bar sales.

Edit: It's midnight. Who wants grilled cheese?

Edit: Edit: I've got half of a 3d printer printed. Most of the outsourced parts are in the mail. Hitting some walls getting the right metric fasteners locally, though.

3D print a 3D scanner and you've got yourself a replicator.

Apparently you can use an xbox Kinect as a cheap 3d scanner.

Didn't they just announce that the kinetic was no longer going to be manufactured?

I've seen Gogol Bordello probably nine or ten times, over the last fifteen years or so, here and in Europe.

Any one of their shows is worth five of any other band's shows.

Just amazing. LOVE THEM.

I liked them, but wasn't a huge fan before the show.

Seeing them live was a definite oh, now I get it moment.

I've seen Gogol in Toronto Once, they have INSANE energy on stage! Love them. Too bad it's been a while they've visited us in Montreal.

Spotify really doesn't do them justice. It's kinda like what I've imagined Pfunk shows being like. George Clinton & co. have played here twice in the past five years and we've missed them both times because of family.

If they swing through a third time, we won't be missing them.

Dude I had a hard time finding metric fasteners for the Benelli when I was in Los Angeles.

Bolt Depot is your friend.

I'll probably end up going that route for some of this. :|

I hate buying shit online. Especially when it gets shipped via my work.

I've seen so many boxes of fasteners get destroyed during shipping. Hardly anyone packages them stout enough.

As it is, I've already got an air shipment that's Late By Day because it sat for 20~ish hours in our flagship facility thanks to "operational conditions". My 1 meter aluminum extrusions are coming in a different shipment via fucking ground service, so I give it 50/50 odds that they're bent.

On the other hand, I had one package come via amazon's private vehicle delivery drivers. Took less than six hours to reach me, shipping was free, the box was pristine, and the lady was stressed as fuck.

Aluminum extrusions should arrive via poster tube. They should be fine. should be. I've ordered similar weirdness without issue.

I am amused that wine-spitting-distance is a term that people use.

keifermiller  ·  261 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I was being literal. :)

By the end of the show, an entire bottle of red wine had been emptied onto the crowd.
