You just never know where or when VulgarGrad are going to turn up next, sweeping down from the frozen north on wings of barbed wire and tattered Russian songbooks. Wednesday, 13 July at the Northcote Social Club is one of those rare occasions, and it’s seriously the last time they’ll be playing their raucous Russian criminal folk-punk-ska in Melbourne this year. Jacek Koman and the gang then go back to the jailhouse to practice for their inaugural European tour later in 2011. In an incredibly special event, you get not just one shot of wild Russian tunes, but THREE. Joining VulgarGrad on the bill for the first time are the new kids on the gulag, Blunderbus – fronted by Melbourne’s very own Siberian fugitive, Misha Doumnov – along with DJ Russian Disco, pumping out bizarre dance tunes from all of the most obscure corners of Europe and the former Soviet Empire.
