#742 – Gypsy Punks by Gogol Bordello

I saw these guys at Hollywood’s Fonda Theater about 5 years ago. They played one of the longest continuous live sets I’ve ever seen, going on stage around 9:15p and playing until 2a. In addition to the length, it was also one of the rowdiest non-metal shows I’ve ever been to. I was recovering from knee surgery and was terrified of somebody bumping or falling against my leg, so as the pit grew larger and larger, I just kept backing up. Eventually, the pit covered the entire floor from the rail to the soundboard, so I had ended up 20-30 feet behind my starting spot.
