I'm fairly certain there's been about a million internet reviews for live Gogol shows, but I'd feel like a failure if I didn't keep up reviews for the shows that I've gone to.
Like many other critics and avid fans I thought that Gogol put on an incredible performance. I think the best moment for me was being able to actually see Eugene Hutz in person - it was almost like a celebrity encounter. I didn't know all of the songs that they played, considering I've mostly listened to Gypsy Punks, but it was still a really enjoyable show - despite the fact that I'd gotten sick that same morning and unfortunately began to feel it when I got there. I made myself get up and dance for 'Not a Crime' (fav!) and 'Start Wearing Purple.' They also did a really awesome cover of 'Girl' by The Beatles, which I'd never heard before.
I can sometimes get a little annoyed at opening bands, but Man Man was really fun. I got their album as soon as I got home, although I haven't gotten a chance to absorb the whole thing yet.
I definitely plan on seeing them again though, and in significantly better spirits.
