Show Review: Gogol Bordello (Clifton Park, NY – July 22nd)

So on Tuesday July 22nd at Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, N.Y. I finally had the experience of a Gogol Bordello concert. Finally! I’m not gonna lie, I first heard Gogol Bordello’s music in the movie “Wrist Cutters”. I enjoyed the music so much I immediately looked them up and I was more than happy to find that the music went way beyond the movie. I was an instant fan!! A few years ago they actually played the same venue but I was unable to attend so when I saw that they were coming back I made absolute sure I wouldn’t miss it.

Upstate Concert Hall is one of my favorite locations to see shows around here because the place is not that big so the setting is always rather intimate and it’s also not that small either which attracts some great performances.

Gogol Bordello has become one of my favorite bands and also my most listened to Pandora channel; while listening to their channel I also discovered for myself their supporting act Man Man, which I also dig very much. Man Man is an experimental group from Philly that carries instruments in their arsenal that some of you may never have even heard of, such as; a Litty Fatty, Euphonium, sousaphone and Clavinet. I would recommend that you true music lovers look them up.

As the anticipation for Gogol was building the crowd began to clap in unison. The lights went dark and we could hear strumming coming from Eugene’s acoustic guitar. The fans roared. Eugene came out on the stage first and went into song. The rest of the band came on stage one by one to join in with the front-man. For the first three songs I was in the photography pit and I had the best seats in the house. It’s always a surreal scene when the musicians you admire are performing right in front of you.

G.B. is known for their energetic gypsy punk brand of music and they certainly delivered. Song after song the crowd sang along with the band and even to their newer material. The big crowd pleasers were Wonderlust King, Start Wearing Purple and their 4 song encore which began with my favorite of the night Alcohol. All in all it was truly one of the best shows I’ve seen. Of course I was a little disappointed that they didn’t play American Wedding or Through the Roof but I guess they left me wanting more and that’s not a bad thing. Below you will find dates for the remainder of their Gonzo Turbo Auto Pilot Tour and festival performances, hopefully you can catch a show!

DS Video Interview: Butcher Knives (NY gypsybilly punk)

March 1st was Butcher Knives‘ album release show at Piano’s in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. I (Rob Smittix, not Jay Stone) had a chance to do a brief interview with the band before the show as well as capture some interesting clips of their performance. Butcher Knives, as I have coined the phrase is a “Melting Pot” of musicians stemming from all parts of the globe. Band members include: Nacho Segura (Colombia/vocals/percussion), Nikko Matiz (Colombia/vocals/guitar), Melissa Elledge (New Orleans/accordion), Tal Galfsky (Israel/keyboards/sampler), Ethan Cohen (New York City/banjo/guitar/vocals), Yoni Benshlomo (Israel/bass/vocals), and Mohamed Amine Smires (Morocco/drums/vocals). Opening acts included Bad Buka, Outernational, and Escarioka. The show was upbeat and energetic from beginning to end and I would recommend to any music loving fan to see all of these acts live. Check out our video interview below.

Pedro Erazo of Gogol Bordello even stopped by to do a guest appearance in the song “Nobody Knows Me”. Gogol Bordello on a side note, a few days ago tweeted and posted on Facebook that their March tour dates have been cancelled and refunds will be given to ticket holders due to Pedro’s Arm being broken. At the Butcher Knives’ concert Pedro’s hand was wrapped in bandages but he only lent his vocal styling to this show with Gogol he also plays percussion.

Butcher Knives’ first release from the album entitled “Misery” is “Tell Me Why” and there’s a video to coincide. The second release and video will be “American Dream” which touches on the topic of being an immigrant in America. The album is currently available for streaming and purchase at the band’s official website.

Butcher Knives’ concert dates are also posted on their site. On May 17th they will be playing at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn with Mustard Plug, so mark your calendar now!

Gogol Bordello release music video for “Lost Innocent World,” announce U.K. shows

Gypsy punks Gogol Bordello have released the music video for their song “Lost Innocent World.” They’ve also announced some U.K. shows.

You can check out the video and dates below.

The band’s latest album “Pura Vida Conspiracy” was released on July 22nd through ATO Records.



Album Review: Gogol Bordello – “Pura Vida Conspiracy”

The pure, orchestrated chaos that is the anarchistic gypsy punk outfit known as Gogol Bordello could be called many things, but boring isn’t one of them. Coming up on fifteen years of service, Gogol isn’t just one of the most unique bands in punk rock, but one of the most consistent. The touring almost never stops, the records drop like clockwork roughly every two years and the live performances are and have always been, some of the most intense, theatrical, entertaining gong shows money can buy.

Their 2007 record ‘Super Taranta!’ introduced them to a wider audience on the back of widespread critical acclaim and huge record sales. And while ‘Taranta’ is still the band’s bar setting record, they haven’t released a bad album since their 1999 debut ‘Voi-La Intruder.’ In fact, ‘Taranta’s proper follow up, 2011’s ‘Trans-Continental Hustle’ sold even better than it did.

Now it’s 2013 and ‘Pura Vida Conspiracy,’ Gogol Bordello’s new studio album is unleashed unto the masses.

Catchy horns and otherworldly chants kick the record off in the right direction, with front man Eugene Hutz’s now familiar, heavily accented vocal work quickly joining the mix and declaring the band rising again in a swirling of gypsy dancehall swing.

A trio of mandolins that recall the Italian countryside press the gas on ‘Dig Deep Enough.’ A song which doesn’t stay subdued very long before a cinematic swelling of shout along choruses that evoke strength and longevity in music and lyrical content. It’s one of the best songs on the record and impossibly infectious, easily dancing between tempos and levels of aggression. It wouldn’t be overrated to call it a masterpiece.

‘Malandrino’ is another hyper reworking of some more traditional Italian music. Malandrino actually means rascal in Italian and Eugene assures us in the song that he was born one, came by it naturally and intends to remain as such indefinitely.

‘Lost Innocent World’ is an angry, adrenaline-spiking ditty that follows the same basic song structure this band has become known for (quiet, loud, louder, louder still, loudest).

And while you can find elements of every musical genre the world has ever known in the bars of a Bordello record, ‘Name Your Ship’ is probably as close to Celtic punk as you’ll ever hear this band getting.

‘Rainbow’ has that wide orchestral sweep that fills every spare inch of sound in the space it occupies and reminds you what a well considered and conceived wall of sound Gogol Bordello is beneath all the insanity.

I’ve always been partial to Gogol Bordello’s faster songs than their slower ones (which makes sense as I’ve always been partial to faster songs in general than slower ones). As such the quality of ‘Pura Vida’ wanes a bit for me in its second half (with the exception of the brilliant ‘Gypsy Auto Pilot’). This is where you’ll find much of the album’s more contemplative, ballad-y cuts. They’re not bad songs and if you’ve been jumping around your room playing guitar on a broom and yelling and yodeling at the top of your lungs for the first six songs, then a few of the last six will give you some much needed time to catch your breath.

It must be said that Gogol Bordello is softening with age. I’m sorry but that’s a fact. There is a restraint that creeps more and more into every subsequent record the band release, away from the more wild, hyperkinetic abandon exemplified in records like ‘Gypsy Punks’ and the aforementioned ‘Taranta!’

‘Pura Vida Conspiracy’ contains some of the bands most well written and exciting songs to date, but as a whole isn’t on the level as some of their earlier records. Which is in no way a non-recommendation. On the contrary, this record is a must have, or at the very least a must listen for fans of the band and fans of multi-instrumental, worldly sounding punk rock with deceptively deep lyrical content.

And, perhaps most importantly, this shit’s going to sound insane live.

4.5/5 Stars
