    Also, I was just reminded of where Mr.Bungle came from...

    Enjoy

    PS  Don't be Mr. Bungle, lol

    I was reading the Bungle Subreddit last night, and apparently there's a quote from Dunn saying that none of the material from the 3 Warner Bros albums would be played at the shows.

    IDK if that quote is true, but it sounds about right... I mean, not playing anything from the 3 albums at the Mr. Bungle reunion is about the most Mr. Bungle thing I can imagine.

    The quote went on to say that in addition to playing the Easter Bunny demo, they might rehash some older ideas (unreleased material?) as well as some punk covers.

    This changes my outlook more than a little. I still haven't decided if I want to burn two vacation days and pay for a hotel in Brooklyn to see them ignore the music that made me a fan in the first place. It's an amazing collection of talent, and that alone might be worth it, but I'm definitely not going to go the Stubhub route (although tickets are now around $125 for Monday night, and will probably drop a bit more after today's onsale)

    I'll try for Brooklyn tickets this morning, but I won't be too bummed out it I miss out.

    Good luck to anyone going for tickets today.

    I will try for 4 on Tuesday.

    Sound good?


    Yesterday's presale was limited to 2 max, and I think today might be the same.

    I'm going for Tuesday as well, good luck.

    I think you nailed it on the collection of talent. I want to see all those guys play a set together - what they will/won't play isn't a big deal for me.

    The multiple screens where you have to ‘click the box that contains...” is infuriating. 

    More than once they made me go through at least 4 screens. 

    Axs.com sucks ass.

    Shit. I forgot to set a reminder. Sounds like it wouldn't have mattered anyway.

    Not sure if anyone has listened to this episode. I'm only 20 minutes in or so, and I'm loving the conversation about the album artwork and how it ties into the overall theme... outer space & underwater, being in a hostile environment, but wearing a suit to protect yourself... he spoke about The Bends, and how that's actually about outer space, it added a nice context to the last phase of that song representing the violent reentry into atmosphere.

    I'm really loving it. If you're into Disco Volante, I recommend giving this a listen.

     Haven't read any in depth reviews, but saw a couple pictures and watched a quick clip from the show last night... looks like it was a good time. Patton had a Coolio thing going on with his hair... not sure exactly what he's going for this day in age, but more power to him.

    For all who are going, enjoy!

    @tempo_n_groove - if you're able to snag me the beanie with the Easter bunny logo on it in Brooklyn next week, I could paypal the cost + shipping + a few extra bucks for a beer. (or two depending on where you buy them of course :D )

    It’s so like them to reunite and then not play a single song from their 3 albums. Gotta love them

    I've missed this band.
