One of the best live band Gogol Bordello will be stopping by First Avenue on Monday, October 30th. Since it’s so close to Halloween, expect some dressing up! Start wearing purple.
The renowned gypsy punk band just released Seekers & Finders (Cooking Vinyl).
We saw the band in 2015, and wrote, “Gogol Bordello is my favorite gypsy punk band out there (yes, there are many of them). Gypsy punk takes traditional Romani music and adds a little, you guessed it, punk. Gogol Bordello takes it a step further and adds a captivating live show. Last Saturday was my first time experiencing them live and I can already feel an obsession brewing in me. I never wanted last night to end. They played for two hours and it wasn't enough.”
Lucky Chops to open.
Note: the show is sold out.
