Gogol Bordello caps off Riotfest with a Sunday late night after show that has the audience in a dancing furry.
Concord Music Hall
Gogol Bordello took the stage by 11:00 PM the day after playing a main stage performance at the festival. Undefinable by any conventional music category, Bordello's music is best described as gypsy-punk between the slamming tempos combined with accordion and violin. From the first downbeat, the dance floor was pulsating and the crowd sang along with fists in the air for set's duration. Their stamina, along with his ensemble in unmatchable. And for all the jumping and antics, the music never falters. They are tight and are having a great time.
The New York-based ensemble features: Eugene Hutz (Vocals/Guitar) - Sergey Ryabtsev (Violin) - Thomas Gobena (Bass) - Pedro Erazo-Segovia (Vocals/Percussion) - Pasha Newmerzhitsky (Accordion) - Boris Pelekh (Guitar) - Alfredo Ortiz (Drums) - Pamela Racine (Vocals/Percussion) - Vanessa Walters (Vocals/Percussion)
