The Urban Gypsy Olympics

We had the pleasure of attending/djing the Urban Gypsy Olympics, presented by our very own moment of brilliant textile decadence, Lennon, in her Bushwick commune. Skirts were swirling, dogs were barking, and my wedding was about to start. Wait, what?

The moustacho party was a big success – keep an eye on us for photos of many charming women in all matter of under-nose bristles and questionable facial hair developments.

The Frank London Orchestra at Mehanata

Photos from The Frank London Orchestra‘s Super-Extravagant Post-Klezkamp Year’s-End Ethno-World Funky Funky Brass Band Blowout and Jam Session on December 30th. It’s hard to tell where the band ends and the blissed-out patrons begin… Click for high-res!

We just caught wind of our buddy’s, the Kreptatka Bar Band, victorious return to Mehanata. It’s happening January 31st at 8:30PM so come early – click to rsvp. These boys made the gypsy festival a beautiful memory for us and we can’t wait to jump all over them – EN VIVO!!!

Also, check out fellow Mehanata resident DJ and all around stellar guy Uproot Andy in this issue of xlr8r music magazine.

NYE Weekend Left-Overs

Raj and Allie Silver, hailing from the same radio station in Chicago without evening knowing it – how Mehanata brings us back together! Allie interviewed us about Burdel Dali for WNUR 89.3 FM back in October – we’ll have some audio from the show up shortly.

Georgie porgy pudding pie, kissed the girls and made them furious.

Trivia: 2 out of 3 Burdel Dali Militia officers have design training from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Represent! Our last second sewing efforts made NYE that much more metallic.

[Burdel Dali Presents] The Burdel Militia’s Black & Gold Party

HAPPY NEW YEAR! ★ 2010 has officially occurred, and Burdel Dali Presents is prepared to get it like a sparkling circus of festive debauchery.

We may not have realized it was 12:00AM on January 1st 2010, but that doesn’t mean a new era of the Burdel’s IMPERIAL REIGN didn’t dawn on us at some point before sunrise (see sparkly photos for visual reference).

Come celebrate the first installment of our 2010 party series this Thursday, December 7th, with Raphlex and DJ Mishto, the highly decorated maestros of our cause, who always come armed with gypsy punk, chalga, bhangra, Russian dance, flamenco, and a few scattered surprises.

★ ★ ★ WEAR BLACK AND GOLD ★ ★★
…or face the militia’s wrath!

Live performance by Avram Pengas at 9:00PM.
FREE ADMISSION AFTER 11:30PM.

[Burdel Dali Presents] 2010!

Happy New Year, immigrant punks & Gypsy Freak friends! The Burdel militia dj’d the infamous Mehanata ice cage on last night on NYE, black & gold insignia shining like the galaxies of inebriation and joy. We were lucky enough to celebrate in a room full of people too drunk to realize we missed the countdown completely…!

Let’s keep it an in-house secret which song we played when midnight struck. Those who were there won’t soon forget.

Here’s to 2010, the launch of our blog, the musicians who remain the lifeblood of our party, and the trouble we’re sure to get into in the next twelve months. Introductions, bedtime stories, photos, and party info on the way…
