Los Angeles, CA (February 27, 2024)Knitting Factory Management (KFM), the management arm of Knitting Factory Entertainment (KFE), has signed punk rock stalwarts Gogol Bordello.

“Gogol Bordello have been a part of the punk scene since the 1990s and have made an incredible impact globally,” continues KFE CEO Morgan Margolis. “We’re proud and honored to have them on board with our KFM team.” 

Gogol Bordello has an impressive body of work, having released eight full-length albums, with a new project in the works this year. A VICE News documentary chronicling the life and career of lead singer Eugene Hütz premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2023 and is currently on the festival circuit—watch the trailer for Scream of My Blood: A Gogol Bordello Story here. Fresh off their New Year’s residency at Brooklyn Bowl locations in Philadelphia and New York, the band will be setting off for the Vive Latino Festival in Mexico City next month. They will continue their festival tour in May with BottleRock in Napa Valley and Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas. In July, they’ll head to Europe for Bospop in the Netherlands, Kulturfabrik in Germany, and Colours of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, before returning to the US in September.

“It’s an honor to be in a position to work with one of the most unique and exciting live bands in the universe,” says KFM manager Brian Long. “I’ve been a fan and have followed Gogol Bordello since they started. They are a welcome addition to the KFM roster, and I look forward to helping them scale new heights in the coming years.”

More KFM roster highlights, from upcoming shows and tours to new music announcements and releases, are included below.

On the performance side, José González will continue his international tour, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of his debut album Veneer, with shows across Australia in March and North America in April and May. Krasno / Moore Project will embark on the week-long Jam Cruise later in February before the Backbeat JazzFest Series in New Orleans in May. Lee Fields will continue touring Sentimental Fool, his critically acclaimed debut album on Daptone Records, in North America in March and April—he will be joined by Y La Bamba at a handful of shows in March. And Veronica Swift is currently touring her eponymous album across the United States through May, interspersed by a few shows in Japan, before heading to Europe in July.

About Knitting Factory Entertainment

Knitting Factory opened its first location in a small, nondescript storefront on East Houston Street in 1987. A category-defying venue, Knitting Factory both established a new standard for audacious, courageous, alternative programming and set the tone for small indie neighborhood spots that defined “downtown” to follow where Knitting Factory had dared to tread. That original Knitting Factory closed in 2009, decamped to Williamsburg in Brooklyn until 2022, and moved back to Manhattan in 2023 as a collaboration with the East Village entertainment complex Baker Falls. Knitting Factory Entertainment has grown into a 360-degree entertainment company with a diversified portfolio of concert houses, bars, venues, restaurants, and theaters, as well as divisions for management, recording labels, booking, and tour support.
