Gypsy punk outfit Gogol Bordello will perform at Royal Oak Music Theatre at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 26 with special guest Lucky Chops.

Gogol Bordello is out on the road performing selections from their seventh studio long-player, Seekers and Finders, which dropped last month on Cooking Vinyl. The album, which is anchored by lead single “Saboteur Blues,” was produced by the band’s frontman Eugene Hütz. The title track, “Seekers and Finders,” features guest vocals from indie songstress Regina Spektor.

Super Taranta!, the group’s fourth full-length, celebrated its 10th anniversary earlier the summer. The album, released in July 2007 via SideOneDummy, debuted at No. 115 on the Billboard 200 and later made several critically acclaimed year-end lists. It was supported by the track “Ultimate.”

This month marked the 15th anniversary of Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony, Gogo Bordello’s sophomore LP. Released in September 2002 through Rubric Records, the album features the single “When the Trickster Starts a-Poking (Bordello Kind of Guy).”

Also on the bill is high-energy brass funk ensemble Lucky Chops. The group, which first formed at LaGuardia Arts High School in NYC back in 2006, has performed at festivals, clubs and performing arts centers across the globe. Lucky Chops’ latest release, Walter E . P., dropped back in April on their Bandcamp page.

Tickets for the all ages event ($29.50 in advance, $35 day of show) are available here at AXS.com. Royal Oak Music Theatre is located at 318 West 4th Street in Royal Oak, Mich. For more information, visit Gogol Bordello’s website, Lucky Chops’ website, and Royal Oak Music Theatre’s website.
