GIG

GOGOL BORDELLO/ DANKO JONES/ DISCO ENSEMBLE/ BEDOUIN SOUNDCLASH

The Eastpak Antidote Tour continues blazing a trail across Europe, stopping off in Birmingham tonight.

Headliners Gogol Bordello fuse Gypsy punk and Slavic stomp with a touch of metal and dub-wise sound effects that pay tribute to the classic sounds of Jamaica. Singer/ lyricist Eugene Hutz says he's on a cultural crusade to build a bridge between Gypsy music, rock'n'roll and other brands of rebel music, from Flamenco to the perestroika punk that blossomed in Eastern Europe during the mid-'80s.

Today: Carling Academy Birmingham, Dale End. Tickets: 0870 771 2000
