Band of gypsies
“There were never any good old days/They are today, they are tomorrow/It’s a stupid thing we say/Cursing tomorrow with sorrow. So sings Eugene Hutz, leader of Gogol Bordello, hipster gypsies, on “Ultimate” from their Super Taranta! disc. From rootless Second and Third World origins, by way of Brooklyn, N.Y., the double-time stomping, world music/punk rock fusionists unhitch their wagons and roll into town this week for a raucous, alcohol-fueled Friday night gypsy jam on their Force of Victory tour at the Grand Sierra Theatre, 2500 E. Second St. Listen as Gogol Bordello give a boho beatdown to pop music. For more information, call 789-2285.
