The arena-rocking gypsy punks interrupt their touring hiatus for two reliably rambunctious, year-smashing nights in the city's biggest shoebox. Led by Eugene Hütz, a towering, bare-chested, outlawishly mustachioed ringmaster, Gogol Bordello blend classic rock transcendence and ye olde will to power in a potent, even political, brew of dub, rai, flamenco, and the rhymes and rhythms of Roma.
