Gogol Bordello
Despite the ongoing war, there’s not an ounce of tension going on between members of punk band Gogol Bordello which features Ukrainian-born frontman Eugene Hûtz right beside violinist Sergey Ryabtsev and guitarist Boris Pelekh, both of Russian descent.

Gogol Bordello—supported by Amigo the Devil—plays St. Petersburg's Jannus Live on Saturday, May 14, and truthfully, no one wants Russia to be doing what it’s doing to the Ukraine, so if anything, this whole experience is bringing everyone closer together.

Gogol is in town on its “Solidaritine” tour where “a significant portion of proceeds will go to Ukraine’s battle for democracy.”
