Gogol Bordello Meet N' Greet

by Yvonne Zusel

Eugene Hutz & Co. sat backstage signing Edgefest fliers, backs of hands and Blockbuster membership cards, seemingly subdued for, well, them. Maybe the Phoenix sun was getting to them; Hutz took his shirt off and put it on his head for some shade, showing off his pastiness, but distracting from it somewhat with the mound of gold chains he sported. The band members might have smelled questionable, but they seemed like they were psyching themselves up to rock. One fan asked if they were going to play "Start Wearing Purple," which the lone present female band member replied to with a mysterious smile. Here's to hoping the fan favorite gets played the fuck out of.
