Talk about excellent timing. If you are anything like us, you start drinking seriously—not to mention heavily—on the morning of December 24 and then, begrudgingly, make an enfeebled pledge to sober up sometime on Boxing Day afternoon. Fuck that shit this holiday season. This year you are going to keep the good times rolling. Why? Because the nonstop party known as Gogol Bordello is headed to town. Not only that, but everyone’s favourite red wine–chugging gypsy punks are doing two nights at the Commodore (Friday and Saturday [December 28 and 29]). That means there’s no sense sobering up until January 2, when you can officially start thinking about giving your liver a break. Lord knows that, by that time, that particular vital organ will deserve a little bit of pity.
