Velvet Einstein recently spoke to singer // guitarist, Eugene Hütz, of New York based gypsy-punk collective, Gogol Bordello. Tune in on Friday, November 4th @ 11:30AM to hear their discussion about the group’s new album, SOLIDARITINE, the current situation in Ukraine, playing music on the battleground, collaborating with H.R. from Bad Brains, and punk rock as a music of perseverance and resilience.
Since 1999, Gogol Bordello have consistently riled up audiences with an inimitable patchwork of raucous punk and Eastern European Gypsy-swing. Since then, these sonic insurgents have been on the verge of infiltrating the mainstream, remaining undeniably embedded within the zeitgeist. A multicultural band that combines Eastern, Western and also Latin traditions.
Gogol Bordello plays The Warfield in SF on Thursday, November 10th.
