We had a get together for our international Balkan dj comrades and all of the people who know how good Raffa’s ceviche is. You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted it!…

Later we went to Mehanata and Amelia showed us how the french wear crowns.

[Burdel Dali Presents] PROPAGANDA PARTY

[Burdel Dali Presents] PROPAGANDA PARTY

It’s the Propaganda party! Celebrating a form of media that has influenced masses with fear and one-sided facts since 515 BC.

Come in your most shiny, politically biased, influential garb and colors you would die for. Or just go to the trimmings shop and buy some cool military patches.

Raphlex & Mishto will keep you dancing all night with anthems so saturated in history you’ll be having flashbacks and speaking in tongues.

★ ★ ★ FREE ADMISSION ALL NIGHT …if you’re on our list.
RSVP to for a free ride.
$10 before 11:30, otherwise.

Here are a few photos of Chloey & Victor folking out the other night… until we got the hack. Uproot Andy played us a beautiful rendition of Tu Jesty Fata on this same guitar and we gathered around like moths to a lamp, singing and swaying. It was beautiful!

Moustacho party pics are on the way…

[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.

…or face the militia’s wrath!

Live performance by Avram Pengas at 9:00PM.
$10.00 Before
