Friday night at the Pageant featured a rare and beautiful site: a mosh pit of sweaty rockers. Like Proust's madeleine, the scent of mosh transported me back to an earlier primordial time, when I was young and too stupid not to realize that dances which involve elbows and collisions aren't healthy, even if they are fun. Gogol Bordello brought it all back to me.

Kudos to Joe Edwards and the Pageant crew too, keeping a firm lid on an evening of controlled, calculated chaos and allowing Gogol's fans the chance to go a little crazy. The whole place was feeling it, and Gogol Bordello's blend of punk politics and gypsy globalism hit its mark. As Eugene Hütz called for the crowd to "break the spell," he was casting his own spell, entrancing, manic and soulful, reaching a near perfect pitch with "My Companjera." And when he plaintively wails, "Where have you gone, my Companjera?", you want to find her, shake her and tell her to go back to him, that he loves you and only you, and will make it all up to you, if only you go back to him. This time...this time will be different.

Listen to the live session with Eugene Hütz at KDHX from August 6, 2010.
