On Friday, October 26, Bong Mansion was blessed with a private concert from the Canadian rock group Monster Truck. There was generous turn out of like-minded people, who came together to rock Bong Mansion and to support local art. Abundance was the theme of the evening. A never-ending amount of joints were being passed around and home-grown weed was being shared. The red room was flooded with concentrates. Our legendary dab bartender, Roach, made sure that everyone who attended was elevated for the events taking place that night.
The Captain of Bong Mansion, Ben Ripsin (co-host of Puff Digital’s Into The Weeds and Mass Nerder Podcasts), was the host of the evening. Setting the tone, Ben made sure to thank all the wonderful people who came together to ensure the night went off without a hitch. He also graciously reminded the audience that Monster Truck came to perform, free of charge, with the sole intention of providing everyone with a good time. Jake Reimer, the protector of Bong Mansion (and the Universe), provided an unreal opening performance. Jake showcased his new sound as a solo artist, incorporating a theatrical delivery that was well received by the audience. He provided an incredible atmosphere, performing such songs as Everything Sucks, the Bong Mansion theme song.
Between the two incredible musical performances, a mind-blowing stunt was performed. The front hall of Bong Mansion was cleared out to make way for a motorcyclist to ride through the building, and into the backyard. Our stunt man, Chris Sedore, ripped up the front stairs, through the mansion itself, and out the back door; performing some extra stunts while outside. This brief intermission psyched the crowd up, preparing them for the arrival of Monster Truck.
Once the legendary band hit the stage, the living-room-turned-concert-venue was bursting at the seams. Not only did Monster Truck provide an unforgettable performance for the Bong Mansion attendees, the concert was also being streamed live to the band’s YouTube Channel. Our extraordinary tech team made sure that both the live performance and the live stream were flawless. In fact, Monster Truck did such an incredible job that the audience demanded an encore. The request for another song became louder and louder, with the entire audience and crew chanting for Monster Truck to continue. The band generously came back on to the makeshift stage and performed one last amazing song before wrapping up the concert
The Goose Skulls (Bong Mansion’s prestigious alumni) and associates were able to clean almost the entire venue that night alone. Those who attended were very respectful to the property and each other. The overall positive actions of those who attended made it easier to wrap up the loose ends of the night. The high vibrational energy in the mansion felt like a shift forward and into abundance. We would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time into making this incredible night happen. We would also like to extend a thank you to everyone who attended the event and remained respectful of the property.
This is only the beginning, we promise you.
