Attitude is Everything

I'm not sure I have the vocabulary to properly describe what the Chicago based band BomBBone sound like, but I can safely say that if you have the opportunity to see them in the future you should probably go. They're a stew of psychedelic-gypsy-waltz-punk who manage to combine Eastern European musical traditions with late 70s American rigor. The band played in Chicago on Saturday night at a place called The Cave, which is in the basement of a Serbian* cultural center. Before the show I asked the Bosnian born front man, Ron Terman, if he'd mind if I took some shots while they played. He told me to 'go nuts.' They did just that on stage, and I attempted to capture the delirium. See the entire set from the night right over here.

*The joint isn't run by Serbian Nationalists, so the Bosninans were safe. Whew!
