Russell Brand look-alike but much cuter, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros puts on a performance that rivals crowd pleasers such as The Boss, Bruce Springsteen or even Jim Morrison dare I say! Don't judge till you see him yourself in person!
The Wanderlust KINGs
Coming MONDAY to the Fillmore in Charlotte is another lunatic ensemble whom I just discovered: Gogol Bordello. Insane is how I describe this musical band of gypsies! Formed in 1999 in lower Manhattan, band members of all nationalities merged for musical madness. Watch the satirical Immigraniada (We Comin' Rougher) (click here) song and see how long you can take it! Right in your face, no punches here, weird Al Yankovic's cousin (not really) is SERIOUS about his schtick.
Do NOT miss the show on May 21.

Interesting junK: "Gogol" comes from the name Nikolai Gogol. As one of the most influential writers in Ukrainian and Russian literature, Gogol paved the way for the likes of Kafka andDostoyevsky. He also serves as an ideological influence for the band because he "smuggled" Ukrainian culture into Russian society, which Gogol Bordello intends to do with Gypsy/ East-European music in the English-speaking world. -sourced from Wikipedia.
