LOUD AND PROUD
Though the audience at Madonnas recent Bucharest concert may have booed her for speaking out against the discrimination of Eastern Europes gypsies, we expect only cheers for the musicians at this fifth anniversary of the NY Gypsy Festival, which hosts everything from gypsy jazz musicians to gypsy punks. It kicks off tonight with a double header of gypsy and brass music by Zlatne Uste and Luminescent Orchestrii at the Hungarian House. Then, tomorrow is the not-to-be-missed Gypsy Boat Party aboard the Clipper City Tall Ship, featuring the lively sounds of Sway Machinery, which features drummer Brian Chase of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Anchors away!
