Oct. 09--POMONA -- Gogol Bordello, the first Goldenvoice-promoted musical act to perform at the restored Fox Theater back in May 2009, is back for another gypsy punk filled show.
The New York-based band is known for its colorful high-energy live shows. It was a crowd favorite at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio in 2007, 2008 and 2011.
Tickets are still available for tonight's show, which starts at 9 p.m. at the theater, 301 S. Garey Ave.
The group's latest album is "Pura Vida Conspiracy" on the ATO record label, which was released in July. Their last albums were the Rick Rubin-produced "Trans-Continental Hustle" released in April 2010 on American Records.
Their best-known song is probably "Start Wearing Purple," which is off their best-reviewed album, 2005's "Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike."
Lead singer Eugene Hutz said the group's latest album "Pura Vida Conspiracy" was a play on words, with "pura vida" meaning true life and conspiracy detailing how people fail to see what's going well instead of what's going wrong.
"Gogol Bordello's music gives me confidence to say that," Hutz said. "It's music that goes into the depth of now and opens the consciousness to another dimension that's usually hidden from people. This accumulation of playing for thousands of hours in Gogol Bordello has connected me to the energetic self, the true human spirit. When you preserve this feeling and transfer it into real life, it becomes a huge part of you."
Opening for the band is Los Angeles' Mariachi El Bronx, whose last release was 2011's self-titled album.
