Silent Disco: Quietly invading Boston

Silent disco? What the hell is that?”

Avid silent disco-goers are all too familiar with this question.

So… what is it?

Silent disco is a new way to experience live music” says George Gayl, co-founder of the event and provider of Silent Storm Sound System.

At a silent disco event everyone is provided with a pair of wireless headphones upon entry.

Through these headphones stream the live music being performed by the DJ or artist of the evening. Each pair of headphones comes equipped with a volume control knob and a mute button. Want to rock out? Crank your volume up! Want to talk to your friends? Hold the mute button down.

OK, so get it? Still skeptical? “Try it, you’ll probably love it. We love converting skeptics,” says Gayl.


Angela is gearing up right this minute for her trip to Michigan to see the Rothbury Music Festival!


The festival, located in Rothbury, Michigan (duh), is four days and four nights. That’s a whole lotta not showering.

Here is the artist lineup for the weekend. Between Angela, Christina and guest writer Neil, Buntology should be covering the hell out of this event.

Some favs to look out for? The Dead, ManMan, Les Claypool, String Cheese Incident, Damien Marley ft. Nas, and Bob Dylan.

You’ve got to run like an antelope out of control [by Xtina]

phish peeps

I thought I knew how excited I was to see Phish for my first time, back together again after five years, in my favorite city in the world. But I was wrong, because when I was in the grandstands of Fenway Park and watched Trey, Mike, Fishman and Page walk out onto the field in Red Sox jerseys and begin to sing the star spangled banner, my excitement reached an all time high. I’m not going to lie to you readers — I shed a tear.

Set the gearshift for the high gear of your soul

You've got to run like an antelope. Out of control.

Ange and Xtina are out of CONTROL right this minute at Phenway – I mean, Fenway – Park, dancing, drinking and plugging the site at the first Phish show of their summer tour!

I, needless to say, am almost paralyzed with jealousy. I am a prettttty big Phish fan, but I had to work. As usual. Luckily, the girls are sending me textual updates and pics, which I’ll pass onto you readers. The first song? “Sample in a Jar.” I LOVE YOU TREY!!!!

More photos and a set list after the jump.

PHENWAY, baby!

A view of the crowd gathered for the Phish performance at the Hampton Coliseum on March 6, 2009

For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past couple months… Phish is back.

At “Phish’s Phinal Phestival” in Coventry, V.T., on August 15, 2004, some people thought it was the end of the four-piece, legendary jam band. Others knew the truth- they’d be back.

October 1, 2008, was the first official announcement of three Phish shows in March. They were going to be played at the Hampton Coliseum in Virginia. This had loyal Phish fans, to put it plainly, phreaking out.

Asher Roth is about to blow up [by Christina]


Hello readers. So, being the official “G” of (in close competition with Alicia) I feel it’s my responsibility to keep you guys up to date on the newest, hottest, G’d up sh*t.

Skinny, stoner, white boy, suburbanite Asher Roth…is about to blow up. Although he might not sound like a hip-hop prodigy from this particular description, Roth’s got the flow. What makes Asher’s rhymes stick is the fact that they’re about Harry Potter characters, not jewelry and cars; throwing frat parties instead of hitting up the club; breakfast at Ihop instead of being in the V.I.P, and chugging beer vs. sipping Patron.

The 23-year-old is originally from the suburb of Morrisville, Penn. He never had hip-hop influence early on in his life, the first CD he ever bought was Crash by Dave Matthews Band. However, around ’98 Asher started listening to hip hop after the Annie sample [Hard Knock Life] by Jay-Z sparked his interest. By high school he was constantly battling and freestyling with his friends and started recording tracks in a friend’s basement. Two hundred and fifty of his burned CDs were sold in two days, and Roth then started to really pursue a career in hip hop. After graduating college he moved to Atlanta in order to be in a major mecca of hip hop to try and launch his music. Roth is currently signed to Scooter Braun’s Schoolboy Music and Steve Rifkind’s SRC Records.

The technology has failed us!

UPDATE:  All better!

Through some sort of wild glitch, our fancy new logo that Travis “T-Pain” Pinsonnault designed for us has disappeared. Along with all our site art. So our logo has gone vintage until we figure this situation out.

In the meantime, check out the latest in Buntology fashion by the merchandise mistress herself, Miss Christina Razionale.
