ACL Spotlight: Gogol Bordello
Gogol Bordello is a Gypsy punk band from the Lower East Side of New York City that formed in 1999. They are renowned for their frenetic, theatrical stage shows. Much of their sound is inspired by Gypsy music, as most of their members are immigrants from Eastern Europe. The band incorporates minor-key accordion and fiddle (and on some of their albums, saxophone) mixed with cabaret, punk, and dub.
They have become a must see for festival goers over the last few years and most blogger and magazines have said that the bands performances at these festivals were among the best. Get there early because its going to be packed.
