Even the diehard fans weren’t expecting this caliber of a performance from their favorite group, but somehow, Gogol Bordello delivered above and beyond. They especially delivered a message Saturday by enthusiastically performing “Immigraniada (We Comin’ Rougher),” a single from their latest album Trans-Continental Hustle. Watch the music video on Youtube and read the comments section, this song has a message we all should listen to. For more information on Immigrants’ Rights, visit aclu.org/immigrants-rights
The AMD stage crowd went into frenzy for this live rendition of ‘”Immigraniada.” I have yet to see the audience at ACL react this much to a band, every person in the crowd instantly started clapping and chanting to the beat as lead singer Eugene Hutz tore up the stage, dancing from one side to the next so quickly that all you saw was a flash of energy.
Speaking of Hutz, we got a chance to catch up with him before their 6:30pm set. I asked him the standard offbeat questions and a few about music, he said Austin has always been one of his favorite places to play. Enjoy the video and pictures below, and remember to keep up with Gogol Bordello at their website, you do not want to miss out on this band.
