"Pura" musical madness.
Tuesday, June 4, 7 p.m.
The band that turned a night at 2009’s DFest into a maddening rock fantasy returns to Tulsa. Raucous and unpredictable, Gogol Bordello will rattle the walls of Cain’s Ballroom at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 4, with its unabashedly wild gypsy punk. Led by the flamboyant Eugene Hütz (the film Everything is Illuminated), the New York band made up of immigrants as equally adept at Yiddish music as it is the Clash makes music of the collective “outsider” experience. Guitars reverb, the squeezebox dances, fiddles reel and the band bounces in its exquisitely hypnotic, bizarre way. Catch the band as it sets out on tour for a new album, Pura Vida Conspiracy, to be released July 23. Tickets are $25-$35 to see Gogol Bordello and opening act Bombino. Get them at the Cain’s, 423 N. Main St., or online at www.cainsballroom.com.
