the sound of gypsy punk continues to take the nation (includes lollapalooza schedule)

Jim (the developer who’s happy where he is) just sent over the news that the schedule for Lollapalooza, Aug 1-3 in Chicago, has been finalized.

The big news out of this year’s lineup is that Gogol Bordello will be at the AT&T stage at 4:15 on Friday.

Yes, the sounds of gypsy punk are coming to the Windy City… and not a moment too soon.

In a time where everyone who wants to be a musician gets to be one, it’s harder than ever to stand out or have a sound all your own. Gogol Bordello has this to burn.

Never before have the sounds of theology, drinking, punk, gypsy-inspired rhythms and fashion been so successfully blended. Check out the song “Super Theory of Super” to hear their ideas on the bible. The song practically insists you enjoy a beer at the same time.

[explicit music warning: not office friendly]

Here’s “Start Wearing Purple,” which Jim and I both agreed was the best of the MySpace site offerings.

And you should check out “American Wedding,” as well. I know most music blogs try to critic or comment on what they’re sharing. But this band speaks entirely for itself. Enjoy.
