Alright.. so i thought i'd bring up this band. Started in the 80s by Ilya Lugatenko ... who now i think is some sort of prolific genius.

The band just opened their North American tour in DC and i have to say i was extremely impressed, overwhelmed and blown away by what i saw tonight. I'd listened to the band on many occasions throughout my foray with russian music... and i'm now a fan. Any americans on this forum would be doing themselves an injustice if they didn't at least try to go to one of these shows:

It's a unique situation, a famous Russian band touring small venues in America. (Bi-2 is also performing in DC next month... though i don't know if it's a tour). Sadly i had to leave before they played their last bit of the set... which i'm sure would feature "Kontrabandy" which is one of my favorites from them.
