Gogol Bordello and Man Man at the Electric Factory

The holiday live music doldrums come to an abrupt end on Wednesday night with the gypsy punk three ring circus of Gogol Bordello at the Electric Factory with bang on a can Philadelphia pranksters Man Man opening up. And the schedule stays busy with the U Penn grad jam-band Disco Biscuits starting a two night stand at the Tower on Thursday, New Orleans party starter Trombone Shorty holding down New Year's Eve at the World Cafe Live and Southern rock storytellers Drive by Truckers at the TLA on Saturday. Below, Gogol Bordello's "Wonderlust King" on Letterman from a few years back.
