These self-styled gypsy punks fill a unique niche in the music world, with their sound an intoxicating blend of cabaret, fiery Eastern European punk and rhythmic Romany influences. With six albums under their belt, as well as tours across the world and appearances at international festivals, these guys have a reputation for putting on intense live shows. Influences range from Jimi Hendrix and The Clash to funk soul collective Parliament-Funkadelic, and the distinctive sound of this Lower East Side of Manhattan group is even more remarkable in concert. Enjoy hits from their latest studio album, 2013's Pura Vida Conspiracy at the KOKO London this July by grabbing your Gogol Bordello tickets on StubHub UK now.
Formed in 1999, this band was the brainchild of Ukrainian singer Eugene Hutz, who fell in love with gypsy music at a young age, becoming enamoured with its mystical, offbeat qualities. After the Chernobyl meltdown, the singer and his family travelled to the United States, where he teamed up with guitarist Vlad Solofar and squeezebox player Sasha Kazatchkoff to start the band.
Named after Russian-Ukrainian writer Nikolay Gogol, the group perform songs that reference their nomadic lifestyle, often accompanied by the accordion, violin and occasionally the saxophone. Relentless live shows established the band's popularity among New York hipsters, leading to a number of tours across Europe and the United States. Anthems such as 'Wonderlust King' and 'Start Wearing Purple' sealed their celebrity status, with the likes of Madonna an open fan of their crazy, indie rock sound. This is one of the most dynamic acts to see in the flesh, so grab your Gogol Bordello tickets now while you can.
