Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello
June 12 2015 @ 6:00 pm
Forgive passersby of Stage AE if they momentarily forget they’re in Pittsburgh; this evening promises a trifecta of world music. Sharing equal billing are Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello, two bands with devoted live followings. Flogging Molly will provide the Celtic punk; Gogol Bordello, Gypsy punk. Flogging Molly has Dave King, an Irishman who sings of exile, drink, and his father’s death when Dave was only 10 years old. Gogol Bordello has Eugene Hütz, a frontman whose mustache (and charisma) rivals Freddie Mercury’s. Commercial peaks for Flogging Molly include 2008’s “Float.” For Gogol Bordello, listen to 2010’s Rick Rubin-produced “Immigraniada (We Comin’ Rougher).” Openers Mariachi El Bronx will provide, well, mariachi. Doors open 6 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore.
