    Lightbulb Desert Sun article about Gogol Bordello

    Coachella artist preview: Gogol Bordello

    Staff The Desert Sun April 1, 2008

    Gogol Bordello

    Back story: This multinational conglomerate is led by Ukrainian singer Eugene Hutz, who lived in Poland, Hungary, Austria and Italy before moving to the United States in 1993. He teamed with fiddler Sergey Rjabtzev, a former Russian theater director, and they created bizarre stage shows using period costumes and music featuring accordions, clarinets and guitars.

    The sound: It's part gypsy, part Brechtian cabaret, part iconoclastic whimsy.

    If you like Gogol Bordello, you'll like: Well, elements of Manu Chao and Matisyahu. Gogol Bordello is like a sacrilegious Matisyahu with a big, energetic Manu Chao sound - with violins and accordions.

    Download: "Super Taranta." It's like a mini-Eastern European folk-comic opera, but you can download all six minutes, 44 seconds for 99 cents.

    See them on stage Sunday, April 27

    A mix of Manu Chao and The Clash would have been more appropriate. But it's still great they made an article about them. I cannot wait for my fourth Gogol show.

    Shit, it'll probably be the third time I miss them.

    I saw none of their Coachella set. I saw like two songs at Vegoose from afar.

    I guess. None of their studio works turns on my ears or brain at all. What I saw at Vegoose did not impress me.

    Please don't be mad at me, Josh. If there are no conflicts, I will try to get in to the gypsy party you rave so much about.

    Bretchian cabaret? Really? No way... That's the Dresden Dolls' sound.

    Although... A DD/GB show would be fucking awesome.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    This should be my fourth time seeing them, but something came up the night of the show at the Mayan.

    A Gogol set at Coachella is going to be insane!

    Quite possibly the climax of the weeked for me.

    I did the same thing, even though I had been waiting about a decade to see Bjork and I had already seen Gogol 4 times before. Those gypsies have some kind of hold on me. I wonder who I will have to miss to see Gogol again this year.

    The Henry Fonda show was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. They slowed it down with 'Alcohol' which is one of my favorite tracks.

    Yes, but they will rotate between Coachella, Stagecoach, & local artists.

    I'm sure you've heard it before, but you can't go by their recordings. And I don't think seeing them from afar works either. Get down in the madness, and then if you still don't like it, eh, at least you tried.

    For that matter, the 12:45 time slot at Vegoose didn't help. I ranked Gogol as my 1st and 3rd favorite performances last year- Coachella 1st, and Vegoose 3rd. But there was a pretty steep dropoff from 1st to 2nd (which was The Rentals) and an even bigger dropoff to Gogol at Vegoose. I think their Coachella show was a once-in-a-lifetime, lightning-in-a-bottle, many-other-cliches kind of show. I'm not expecting to have my world changed again, but I still know it will rule.

    I can't handle Gogol's recordings, but I'm really hoping I get a chance to catch them this year. I'd bet money they'll conflict with Metric, MMJ, or Roger Waters though. Just a feeling.
