WTF is Gogol Bordello

Gogol Bordello is a Gypsy punk band from New York.

Gypsy punk…shut the front door.

I didn’t get it either even though I had heard and seen the band’s name associated with one of my favorite ATL bands The Constellations. Last May, I flew to Vegas to see Rammstein but stayed an extra night to catch System of the Down and Gogol Bordello was the opener.

WOW!

The entire time they were on the stage, I was in awe. Awe of the number of people in the band, the number of instruments, the age range of the band, the ethnic diversity of the band, and the intense performance of Eugene Hutz.

Well Charlotte, you’re going to get your own chance to see Gogol Bordello play on Monday, May 21st @ The Fillmore. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 23rd @ 10 am.

This is a show that everyone needs to see at least once in your life. You will not be disappointed and though you’re probably sitting there thinking, I don’t like gypsy punk, have you tried gypsy punk?

Gogol Bordello is kind of infectious and you want to be in the middle of the crowd dancing and singing along with everyone. If not, check your pulse, you might be dead.
