Gogol Bordello, concert FIXED. Gogol Bordello is a spectacle. The wildly exuberant, multi-ethnic group from New York City makes frenetic music that's part punk rock, part Gypsy folk, part Cabaret. Led by Eugene H?tz, a Chernobyl survivor from Ukraine, the band is famous for its costumed live shows that often stretch for more than two explosive hours. Gogol Bordello performed at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club, in a full concert originally webcast live on NPR.org July 18. (The previous podcast of this concert was the incorrect length. This version includes the full show).
