live: borbetomagus

happy there was a container of complimentary earplugs at the entrance. this is the only 2nd time in my life i've felt i needed (had) to wear them.
stole this from the wire. as a rule, i don't take photos at shows.
i've listened to and appreciated these cats over the years, heard tales and read about their performances, but none of it prepared me for this live sound experience.
no ceremony, just an unrelenting blast of what these guys do from the instant the light turned green, until they stopped doing it. feel like i learned something.

this documentary (below), which lit the wick for the evening, was pretty good too. chris corsano's cameo was really funny.

*also, scoured my place for the past 2 weeks searching for a very old borbetomagus cassette... dang.
