Way to respect other peoples' interests and tastes, Dimon...

That said, you should post in the artists seeking stages thread, and then keep an eye on that as well as the stages seeking artists thread. A lot of camp/stage bookers don't have the time to dig through all the separate threads that artists and performers start for themselves, it's easier to skim through and follow along those two catch-all threads.

"other people's interests and tastes" tend to drastically change after GB shows or our dj sets (instantly or slowly, depending on how much exposed there were to REAL music before). so lets get radical here.
thanks for the info.

Yes, yes, yes... the old standard "we're better than everybody else" schtick. ;)

better than this american college art education concept "every piece of art is great, and even if it looks or sounds like shit - it's still great, it's just different, and you're great artist as long as you pay us 50 grand" that produces millions of dummy bands&djs playing 'fast-food for brains' plastic beats and putting out a fashion show instead of delivering raw power and original fire.
i suppose you are unaware of new worldwide movement that GB leads. people of our movement crack people's minds wide open with every show/dj gig. without any help of acid, coke or whatever
i was at BM last year and was really shocked to discover how poorly it was represented for music. it was either 'rave culture' skull-pounding electrobullshit or bassnectarish boring 'wanna be cool' 'grooves' (hehe).
i ended up throwing a 12-hr real dance party at friendly camp's stage, just to cover the hole and create some good vibes for all those people that were hungry for that.)
ok, no time for discussions. you'll figure it out sooner or later.

"bassnectarish boring.."

Hmm. I love Bassnectar. And I have a pretty serious aversion to huge-ass egos.. So far, two strikes against ya.

BM is ginormous. You can probably do your own thing without pissing on so many others. Or maybe that's just *your* shtick.

Do not anger the robots with your tales of analogue supremacy. We know you still need our precious electrons to broadcast your lies.

I'm quite sure the automatons and I would have enjoyed your wobbly string performance. Instead we will dance with the DJs to protest against the sour nature of your pointless diatribe.

Robots aren't usually so judgmental. We like so many disparate forms of pressure wave manipulation. It blows our fuses when we read human hate speech aimed at the digital world.

PS - your name-dropping impresses no one

I love Gogol Bordello, and I love Bassnectar. It's too bad you have such an obnoxious ego, I think I like GB less now...

You never answered the question, though. Is the band going to be there? Will this be a GB show? Or are you just using their name to get yourself a DJing gig?

Actually, I noticed yesterday Gogol Bordello plays September 2nd here in Vancouver BC ... so they do have the right timing to be here on the West Coast.
Not sure what the rest of there tour looks like though..
