Who broke my gypsy festival?!

Despite our biggest event of the year being canceled at literally the last possible second, those who came to Gypsy Tabor to camp out for three days of music, booze, and frivolity were not going home without a fight. We didn’t actually do much fighting, but we did a whole lotta music making, hookah-smoking, BBQ-ing, and summer-soaking-up.

Thanks to everyone who stayed in the woods with us, especially the Russian folks with charged guitar amps, everyone who brought drums, flutes, tambourines, Kreptatka Camp for providing us with non-stop hookah all weekend, and Sarah for waving the “FUCK YEAH” flag.


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.

[Burdel Dali Presents] The Kreptatka Bar Band COSTUME PARTY!

[Burdel Dali Presents] The Kreptatka Bar Band COSTUME PARTY!

This Thursday at Burdel Dali Presents, come early for a live performance by the highly decorated, widely feared & adored Kreptatka Bar Band… come see if their inspirations (Gypsy Shamanism, substance) make an appearance.

At 9:30, Yuri Younakov & Avram Pengas take the stage. At 11:00 DJ Mishto & Raphlex and their island of misfit toys will be dispersing your favorite celebratory immigrant anthems…

Hosted by Tchaikovsky Darling… Dress code enforced via staircase brutality. Wear a costume or at least some war paint (and get ready to die on the dance floor). There is also a chance you may be thrown down the stairs, whether or not you pass the dress code. Ready yourselves.

As always… cheap wine, hookah, & history in the making.
