The only gypsy-rock band to inspire consistent audience nudity—or the only one on this island, anyway—Gogol Bordello are almost a decade past their debut Voi-La Intruder and no less invigorating live; they’re simply best experienced this way. Sure, Eugene Hutz’s garrulous huff and that snazzy Ukrainian accordion sounds fine by headphones, but the live show is rightfully the stuff of downtown legend: howling, dancing, stage-diving, clothes-ripping, slam-dancing, euphoric commotion, and ya’ never fully anticipate how boldly it strikes every single time.

Dec. 27-29, 7 p.m., 2009
