The Winning Ticket: Gogol Bordello @ 9:30 Club, 12/27/13

GogolBordelloF_V2As a way to say thanks to our loyal readers, We Love DC will be giving away a pair of tickets to a 9:30 Club concert to one lucky reader periodically. Keep your eyes open for opportunities to find out what tickets we’re giving away, and leave a comment for your chance to be the lucky winner!

Today, we are giving away a pair of tickets to see Gogol Bordello at the 9:30 Club on Friday, Dec. 27.

Bringing Eastern European culture to us via New York City, Gogol Bordello released its sixth studio album, Pura Vida Conspiracy, back in July. As has become a tradition, the self-proclaimed “gypsy punk” band is hitting the 9:30 Club for two nights of revelry on Friday, Dec. 27, and Saturday, Dec. 28.

While the band (through various lineup changes) have consistently recorded high-energy klezmer, their off-the-wall live shows are truly the toast of their fans. Here is your opportunity to see what it’s all about for free — or perhaps to attend another? (I once knew a guy who went to more than 50 Gogol shows!)

For your chance to win these tickets, simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between 10am and 5pm today. Feel free to leave any comment, but perhaps share your favorite song by Gogol Bordello! One entry per email address, please. Tickets for this show are also available through Ticketfly.

For the rules of this giveaway…

Comments will be closed at 5pm and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email within 24 hours or they will forfeit their tickets and we will pick another winner.

Tickets will be available to the winner at the 9:30 Club Guest List window one hour before doors open on the night of the concert. The tickets must be claimed with a valid ID. The winner must be old enough to attend the specific concert or must have a parent’s permission to enter if he/she is under 18 years old.

  1. I am a huge Man Man fan, but would love to be introduced to Gogol Bordello through their famous live show!

  2. Would love to go! Favorite Gogol song is We Rise Again and favorite Man Man song is Loot My Body!

  3. Best live act I’ve seen to this day!

    Second time I read the bible
    I was thinking ‘it’s alright man’

  4. Immigrandia is a great song, and the band’s energy can’t be beat. I’d love to win free tickets!

  5. Ooooo. Pick me pick me. If I win, I will wear all the purple. I love BOTH Gogol Bordello AND Man Man. It’s hard to pick favorites but if you twist my arm, I guess I’d say my favorite Gogol Bordello song is “Think Locally, F*** Globally” (when performed live) and my favorite Man Man song is “Haute Tropique.” Pick me!

  6. I saw Gogol Bordello twice when I lived in Boston and it’s still the best live show I’ve ever seen. Would love to see them again!

  7. I’ve seen Gogol play over 15 times. Gogol and more importantly Eugene has changed my life tremendously with the power that their music brings. It’s so tough to pick a favorite Gogol song but if I were to pick one it might be “Dogs were Barking” or “Last one Goes the Hope”

  8. my favorite gogol bordello moment is the entire movie Everything is Illuminated. fantastic soundtrack!

  9. all time favorite band!! amazing energy, like making love with the perfect mix of love and chaos!! “Amen”

  10. Love Gogol Bordello! First time I saw them was by myself in Baltimore. It was electrifying. “And you know my head is held inside by stitches.”

  11. I would love to come, my friend loves Gogol Bordello, and a ticket surprise would be great since we had plans to go, but haven’t committed to them yet. I need help making commitments basically, this would help me!
