Gogol Bordello tonight at The National

I usually do one big blog for the week but this week it will probably be a few smaller ones. Why? Well, the PHILS ARE IN THE WORLD SERIES AGAIN starting tonight, so I will of course be watching those games as they try to defeat the Evil Empire. ("The New Yankee Stadium. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villany.") Also, both kids have now decided that they need a parent in the room until they fall asleep and that has led to my falling asleep with them. Thank God for DVRs so I won't miss any of the games in case that happens over the next week.

Anyway, tonight at The National, Gogol Bordello brings their energetic, gypsy punk to Richmond. I have really enjoyed watching this band on all the festival webcasts over the last year but have yet to see them live. Unfortunately, that won't change because THE PHILS ARE IN THE WORLD SERIES and game 1 is tonight so I will have to catch them next time. Tickets for the show are $23, doors open at 7, show starts at 8 with opener, Apostle of Hustle. Here's Gogol Bordello performing "Start Wearing Purple" at last year's Coachella Festival:

Have a good day!
