GBV Update

Still broken up.

As for real news I'm off for the rest of the summer starting today. I can't be contacted, but I can contact you. Jeff's decision should come any day now. Oh and tickets for the Download Festival at the Tweeter Center are around 40 USD.

Peace out

GB update

Gogol Bordello is playing two shows in New York (Irving Plaza) on July 20 and 21. The details need to be worked out but the chinatown buses seem like the best bet so far. If anyone wants to go, tell me soon so I can get tickets.

Fastfoward to October: they're playing a full U.S. tour and Boston is almost certain to be part of it.

More details to follow soon.

By the way, their new album, Super Taranta, is due out July 10th, 07. If you want it, preorder it on to get a free shirt or on for a free poster.

"Best" Music Festivals

MSN decided that they know something about music (they don't) and compiled a list of the world's "best" fests.
Here's their list:

1. Bumbershoot
2. Edinburgh International Festival
3. Essaouira Gnaoua and World Music Festival
4. Exit Music Festival
5. Fuji Rock Festival
6. Glastonbury
7. Monterey Jazz Festival
9. Spoleto Festival

Seeing as how I know next to nothing about most of these, I can't judge the list except for the fact that Bumbershoot tops it which means the list can't be good even if some are decent.
Now for my usual Gogol Bordello connection: they've been confirmed for both Bumbershoot (along with Wu-Tang Clan and DeVotchKa) and Glastonbury.

By the way, Ducks won the Cup!
