Gogol Bordello, Man Man @ The Space at Westbury – 7:00 PM – gypsy punk
Combining elements of punk, gypsy music, and Brechtian cabaret, Gogol Bordello tells the story of New York’s immigrant diaspora through debauchery, humor, and surreal costumes. Leader and singer Eugene Hütz‘s taste in music was spun out of black-market tapes of the The Birthday Party and Einstürzende Neubauten in his native Ukraine. After being evacuated to Western Ukraine in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster, Hütz became enamored of the mystical, outsider qualities of gypsy music.

Steve Poltz @ Rockwood Music Hall – 8:00 PM – singer-songwriter
He trick-or-treated at Liberace’s house, planned a two-day stay in Amsterdam that ended a month later with him escaping the city under the cover of darkness, and was Bob Hope’s favorite altar boy. Alone, these anecdotes go well with a fistful of peanuts at a cocktail party. But on top of these add that this person also co-wrote the longest-running song on the Billboard Top 100, had a debut solo album that earned three and a half stars in Rolling Stone, and was awarded the title of “San Diego’s Most Influential Artist of the Decade” at the San Diego Music Awards.

Now a complete unit with a voice, and a name to put to the faces, “I, Omega” (formerly known as “The Syncope Threshold“) are painstakingly crafting new structures of percussion, distorted frequency, and diversity of word and pitch for all hear and judge for themselves. Not without their influences, but not content to render themselves stagnant by limiting themselves to one sound, they are seeking to blur the lines of genre, and are constantly pressing themselves to play the notes the world least expects.
