Gogol Bordello Coming to L.A. LIVE's Club Nokia October 13th

by laliveinsider on Wed., Aug 11 at 09:00 AM

Gogol Bordello--combining elements of punk, gypsy music, and Brecht-ian cabaret--will return to Los Angeles with a Wednesday, October 13 performance at Los Angeles' CLUB NOKIA. Tickets for the Club Nokia show go on sale Saturday, August 14th at 10am.

Gogol Bordello--who tell a story of New York's immigrant diaspora through debauchery, humor, and surreal costumes--gained an international underground reputation quickly due to their innovative blend of Eastern European Gypsy and Western culture and a stage show that resembles a three-ring circus of surreal stimuli. The band's newest release Trans-Continental Hustle (their American Recordings debut) is perhaps the most ambitious undertaking in the group's already remarkable decade-long career and it's the result of an inspired, yearlong collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin. Gogol Bordello is arguably the hardest working--and hardest rocking--group of our discordant new century, maintaining a tour schedule and an onstage energy level that would send the average combo running for the emergency room. While putting out the critically acclaimed Gypsy Punks and SUPER TARANTA! albums, the intrepid band has literally traversed even the farthest corners of the globe, building a substantial world-wide fan base via gigs and festival appearances throughout Eastern Europe, South American and the Middle East, along with stops in Australia, Western Europe and in their adopted U.S. homeland. Their encounters and adventures, as well as the band members' own immigrant histories, fuel the subversively upbeat story-songs on Trans-Continental Hustle. Front-man and lyricist Eugene Hutz spins out scenarios that are, by turns, hilarious and heartbreaking-from the outsider experience of gypsies in his native Ukraine to the struggles and celebrations of Brazil's favelas. It can be said that Gogol Bordello has been representing the voice of all minorities all at once, a voice that comes from a real, poetic and deep place.

All tickets are $35 and will be available at all Ticketmaster outlets or online at www.ticketmaster.com and from 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri at the STAPLES Center Box Office located at 1111 S. Figueroa St.  No fees are charged at the STAPLES Center box office or at the Club Nokia box office on show days (open after 5 PM).
