    Default We Wanna Party With The Bonaparte 2011

    Best non-Prince set at Roskilde. No youtubes can be found of that particular show, maybe because everyone was one sweaty dancing mess in a packed tent at like 3 in the morning. Chiapet can back me up.

    They reeeeeally need to play in the US. At Coachella would be fine.

    These guys were so much fun and so weird. You should post a few pictures from their set.

    Their set at Roskilde was completely off the wall mad bonkers. Never seen anything like it before really and the crowd was one non-stop dance moshpit.

    The videos don't even do justice to how fun, but weird and random, their performance is. It's hard to even describe, it's like circus animal burlesque. The part where they played "Computer in Love" and the girl in pasties started making out with a computer-head, for a second, I thought "NO... this is too cheesy." But the degree to which they commit to it actually makes the cheesy parts GREAT.

    *** bONapARTe On tHe RoAd ***

    read this before: if you book us you DON'T really get 21 people and 12 disturbed animals and a real elephant because you wouldn't be ready for that, we'd need a house, a chef de cuisine, a gardener, a horse whisperer, a doctor and a pool - in short an entire hotel ***** - and also a huge old rokoko theater to perform in. since you don't have all of that... what you DO get is: a show with plus/minus 9 people from the collective risking their private and public lifes for you, dressed as animals or wurst and a loud concert somewhere im grenzbereich and mucho fun fun fun! (btw. a hot pool would be cool nevertheless).
    We need to figure out how to get these guys booked in the US

    No tears! You're so much cooler now that you're into a band that not many people are keen to, that no one in the states will be seeing locally... or you could go cry, realizing none of that helps the situation at all ='( On the other hand... it's a good excuse to dance like you can, when you know you can't =) I can't dance made my day
