Gogol Bordello are brilliant, wild, and completely out-of-control maniacs. Thank goodness they party on the side of good.
This Friday, the New York-bred band of Gypsy-punks descend on Revolution Live like a swarm of fun-loving circus folk armed with accordions and violins instead of stale popcorn and bearded ladies. That’s not to say they won’t set Fort Lauderdale into a frenzy like a pack of caged animals.
As if that weren't enough, they’re bringing along a friend — the brilliant Frank Turner. A former hardcore punk himself, Turner is one of the brightest singer-songwriters out of England, the British Isles, or anywhere else, really. Like his tour mates, Turner puts on a hell of a concert, complete with loud sing-alongs and an electric current of energy firing from his acoustic guitar.

Turner is currently touring and promoting his latest record, 2015’s Positive Songs for Negative People, while Gogol Bordello are touring just for the fun of it. Although neither would fall exclusively under the “punk” label, Turner and Gogol Bordello are about as punk as any sweaty mosh pit — something we expect to see plenty of at Friday's show.
Catch all the frantic shenanigans of Gogol Bordello and Frank Turner at Revolution Live on Friday, June 10. For tickets and more information, visit jointherevolution.net or call 954-449-1025.
