Bohemian Grove Gig Invitation 

Just got invited to do a flamenco show at Bohemian Grove during their infamous "Cremation of Care" ritual/ceremony. I would be performing for the power elite and the likes of Donald Rumsfeld and Kissinger. Great guys. I might not be able to contain myself from telling them just how wonderful I think they are.
Should I take the gig?

I bet my dancing goat would go over big time there

Oh, here is the kicker.... its a non-paying gig even though it is for the richest people on the planet.

I was 'bout to say, I heard they didn't even pay. It would be tough to weigh the chance of making an excellent connection, either with a potential client or other cool musician participating, with the sinking feeling of being a lower-class servant working for free for the banksters who are gleefully grinding the world under their heels... I think I would demand payment and pass when they refused.

Long, somewhat titillating, ultimately disturbing article about the Bohemian Grove:

What? Flamenco in Bohemian Grove????

If this is true, I would recommend to stay away from anything related to satanism.

Take the gig. And tell them what you think. Let me know what happens. You also probably know you'll be employed several times to play for well paying gigs over the next few years if you do.

Ah yes, the super-secret-summer-camp! Fashion a nice hat and shirt out of goat bones and I bet nobody messes with you

Just stay out of the bushes

RE: Bohemian Grove Gig Invitation (in reply to RibNibbler

That's a great opportunity. You should jump in and think marketing.
1st, you could get your guitar signed by one of these gurus.
2nd, make a lot of pics with them in order to post 'em on your website. The viral marketing might give you job for years to come...
3rd, try to get some testimonials on tape, or paper towel. Reusable ad nauseam, bigots would enjoy it.

On the other side, this jones guys is a BIG joke!
Of course I not watched the doc, but I moved the cursor randomly on the timeline and guess what! I came across a snail sequence. The guy zoom in for a minute or something on this fuking snail, talking about i don't know what!
That's just pure non sense. He has nothing to say, but his doc lasts 2h!
His newest trend seems to focus on 'false flag attacks' btw...
There's much better stuff to watch if you want to get proper infos. But I already burned too much energy in this kind of post, so I'd not provide any links

My daugther's boyfriend worked there throughout his high school years. She thought you should do the gig just for the stuff your likely to witness. After hearing about some of the stuff my kid's friend saw, I'm inclined to agree. The iphone photos you might get could fund a sweet retirement if you have the inclanation to use them. Then again a goat that can dance a paso double could do quite well too.

One of my dearest friends is a grover. They are not really what you think. You may find some of the more well known individuals disagreeable. But there are plenty of astute, upright grovers.

I was on the track to be hired myself, but pulled out at the last minute due to work. First, are you sure they are not paying? They pay most staff. And, they tip. I understand they tip a lot.

If it's free, play anyway. It will be a humbling to play free again. And it may be an interesting experience, ease your insufferable boredom.

If there is free beer, yes. If not, no.

I suspect more there is free than just beer.
