Transcontinental Hustlers

Transcontinental Hustlers

There's quite the global rock and roll triple bill going on at the Electric Factory on Saturday, with Gogol Bordello (above)  topping a bill that also includes swoony Euro-folk cabaret purveyors DeVotchKa and gritty New York rocker Jesse Malin.  Gogol Bordello are led by mustachioed madman Eugene Hutz, and their highly rambunctious kitchen sink aural assault moves from gypsy punk to ska to klezmer in an all-embracing, boisterous blink of an eye. They make their play for a wide audience with the new Transcontinental Hustle, produced by Rick Rubin, which can be sampled here. The first single, "Pala Tute," from Jools Holland, is below.
