RadioGagarin Sunday 20th July 2008, from 6pm
London's only Balkan/Russian/Baltic/Gypsy/Klez/Mash/Thrash/Trash/KULTURKlash!!!
'The Arts Club's most adventurous and anarchic night (and that's saying something)' —Time Out
The Commissar continues to pledge:
UK debut of French Roma band Gadjologie, Angelina and the Gipsy Punks, Bow Mods, Zoe Klinger's Friends of Gagarin, Lenin's Talkin' Blues project, and Mishka the Bear, Max Reinhardt & Misha Maltsev sweating it out in the Gypsy Diskoteka til' the road of excess has led us to the place of wisdom. Early evening come to cool your soul with summer home-cookin in the Kitschen and new and classic shorts from Eastern Europe.
