While the crowd waited for Gogol to come on stage, they were entertained by trippy videos, along with hip-hop and world music from Haiti I believe? At least that’s what I thought Eugene Hutz said. Gogol Bordello came on at 9:30pm and rock Irving Plaza like they always do! Eugene came out and started to play “Illumination,” slowly more members came out to play along. The next song was a new song I believe, because I never heard it before. It was nice to hear some new songs, especially the ones they played. Their new album, Trans-Continental Hustle, comes out in April 27th on American Recordings. Out of the show, they probably played around 4 or 5 songs that I haven’t heard yet. At some point they played “Pala Tute” which is the song they performed with Madonna at Live Earth in 2007. That song I believe, is on their new album.

After that, “Not A Crime” was played and the crowd went insane. Same goes with “Wonderlust King.” I noticed throughout the concert that Pedro was more involved than the last time I saw the band, and Pamela wasn’t really as involved as Elizabeth was. [EDIT: Apparently this wasn’t Pamela at the show. Oops] Pedro was playing the drum and bongos a lot more, and the girls were in the background for majority of the set. Eugene is such a unique and energetic frontman that it’s hard not to keep your eyes off him. Sergey is an exciting fiddle player as well. Without a doubt, Gogol is still one of the best live acts in the world right now. [readjunk.com]
