Gogol Bordello

Eugene Hutz has restless continent syndrome. The Ukrainian Gypsy musician, whose Gogol Bordello played the first of two sold-out nights at the 9:30 Club on Thursday, arrived in New York in the 1990s but just couldn't stay. He now lives in Brazil and is usually on the road with his voraciously eclectic band...

The group opened with one of several internationalist anthems, "Tribal Connection,'' a folkie rabble-rouser with a reggae beat, a hip-hop interlude and Slavic violin and accordion accents. As the 95-minute show continued, stylistic shifts occurred roughly as often as the musicians switched instruments or rushed to another part of the stage... Gogol Bordello's style is descended from the Clash's "Sandinista'' and Franco-Spanish cult band Mano Negra, and shares those predecessors' political outlook. -[The Washington Post]

Gogol Bordello and Man Man played two nights at 9:30 Club in Washington DC, Dec 30th and Dec 31st, before scooting to NYC to team up with Endless Boogie to play the first show of 2011 at Terminal 5. The celebration continued at an afterparty at Studio 21 in Chelsea later Saturday night.

The show was the second of three in a row for Endless Boogie, who spent their New Year's Eve at Lit Lounge, and last night (1/2) at the LES bar Max Fish which is scheduled to close down at the end of January. More pictures from Terminal 5, as well as some video and Gogol's setlist, are below. ..

Endless Boogie is one of the best bands going.
So happy I got to hear them with Gogol.

Tears of Tofu is opening for Godspeed You! Black Emperor at T5 soon. That's a show worth going to

Man Man were awesome.

I, for one, hope to see them always open for Gogol. It gives me an extra hour to jump around like a maniac and lose myself to the madness.

@ 8:21, good one, probably the most well-thought out post I've seen on BV. You most definitely are a Man Man fan.

Too bad you didn't get hit with the handful of spoons.
