Sorry Folks, No Image Is Here.

Gogol Bordello have a new album coming out in the spring called “Transcontinental Hustle” and have also announced initial tour dates in the USA as well as Europe. What’s even cooler is DeVotchKa is playing with them on the US dates! I’m not sure if DeVotchKa is playing with them on their US Tibet Benefit Show at Carnegie Hall on February 26th, or any NYC dates but they are for other US dates. I might have to attend one of those shows! Can’t wait to hear the new album as well. Tickets go on sale Friday and Saturday but a pre-sale is happening right now if you sign up for the band’s website. Read on for more info from Eugene Hutz and the band:
