music: Gogol Bordello!

I'm a little nervous, but wearing my "Start Wearing Purple" t-shirt and we're off to SF to see Gogol Bordello at the Fillmore. We'd take teenboy but he's got school early tomorrow morning. So it's just us middle-aged types, and I hope it's more Gypsy and less Punk. I gotta find my earplugs.

The crowd tends to be VERY boisterous

I like being in the pit when I'm up for it, but it's been too much for me at least once.

Yay!

And according to Morten, earplugs are a necessity.

Didn't need them for the concert, we must have been in the perfect location :-)

Oddly enough, they weren't too loud for me. The DJ's stuff shook the balcony, and I was glad I had the cotton then, but the band was good and not too loud.

I think it's just because he isn't used to going to live concerts :)

I watched them on tv playing the Reading Festival. No mosh pit (maybe more of a conga line) but when they started playing 'Start wearing purple' the crowd erupted! Looked like fun. Hope you enjoyed! Am seeing them in Dec. *grins*

So cool to get the phone call from you after the concert. You sounded like you were on a great concert high.

I'm glad I could call you, I just needed to burble at someone! We got home fine, but two of us navigating were better than one.

I hope you had a great time! (Earplugs are essential for me to enjoy myself at a concert.)

Great fun! We were nicely situated away from the speakers so it didn't hurt :-)

Oh Gosh. If there is no mosh pit I will be surprised. The crowds are quite rough at these shows.

We were up in the balcony, safe and seated :-) My feet are happy about that. It was a fabulous show!

*I hope it's more Gypsy and less Punk.*

Take water, a camera, and expect anything. I saw them six weeks ago, front rail, and I'm sure I was a few decades older than the kids around me. But the odd boot from a body surfing by is part of the GB charm. You're gonna have a blast!

Front rail, wow, I am much too middle-aged and stodgy for that. But we had fun anyway :-)
