Mumiy Troll
Mumiy Troll
The band which identify themselves as Evergreen Far Eastern romantics, was founded in Vladivostok (Russian biggest port on the Pacific coast) by Ilya Lagutenko. Since then, they have played gigs across the globe: from Siberia to the Baltics, Mongolia to Greenland, Shanghai open-airs to St Petersburg’s Palace Square. Being a successful band, they are still fresh, hungry, and in search of new musical discoveries.

Starting with the release of their first self-funded album in 1997, Mumiy Troll (Мумий Тролль) rapidly became one of Russia’s most popular and influential bands. They were the first to appear on Russian MTV, represented Russia at Euro-vision, and have won every award going in their native land.

Furthermore they are often called “Russian Rolling Stones” — and with every gig and tour they prove it.
Last year the band released their 13th studio album “Malibu Alibi”. The English-language “Malibu Alibi” was recorded during the band’s round-the-world trip on a 19-century sailing ship in locations as diverse as LA, Moscow, China, Singapore and South Africa.

During the European tour to support the album, they played sold-out gigs in Germany, UK, Ireland, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Baltic States followed by the North American tour. In 2016 at the 69th Cannes Film Festival Mumiy Troll presented their movie “Vladivostok Vacation” created during band’s round-the-world trip.

Being the participants of famous festivals and music conferences in different countries (SXSW, Culture Col-lide, Zandari, Mucon, Sound City, Visual Japan Summit, etc) in 2013 they founded their own showcase festival “Vladivostok Rocks” (V-ROX) which is held in Vladivostok annually and has become a massive cultural phenomenon recognized by NY Times as “A small Pacific Wood-stock...”.

In 2016 Ilya Lagutenko became a music curator for the annual “Piens Festival” (Milk Festival) in Riga (Latvia). In collaboration with UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) he has established “Far From Moscow Festival”: Dec, 9–11, 2016 an alternative brand of Russian culture in film, music, cuisine, fashion, and comics will be presented in Los Angeles.

Ilya Lagutenko’s wide cultural interests allow him to collaborate with musicians, artists, directors all over the world. Along with international creative team he took part in the “Paradis” project — performance organized by philanthropic film studio “Elysium Bandini Studios” and James Franco (Cannes, France). Also he is permanently involved in nature preserve projects connected with Amur tiger protection, in different charity programs.
Hey Guy
Hey Guy
After hundreds of raucous, theatrical and certainly memorable shows spanning the globe, Boris Pelekh, guitarist of Gogol Bordello hits the road with his side- project and provocative new band Hey Guy.

Keeping with an expressive sonic approach and stage presence the aptly named Hey Guy is as bold and memorable as their name; a modern rock act with equal parts ferocity and finesse.

Their catchy songs are cunningly layered, exhibiting a knack for uncanny melodies coupled with fierce riffs and sprawling atmospherics. With that Hey Guy will be touring their self titled EP (Hey Guy III) which delivers
a spectrum of innovative and genre bending songs...

Imagine if the Beach Boys jammed with Queens of the Stone Age...and you've got a party courtesy of Hey Guy.

With a live show that blends composed musicianship amidst hilarious and sometimes bizarre theatrics, Hey Guy has garnered popular acclaim in the New York

City scene, conquering venues such as Blender Theater, The Mercury Lounge and Irving Plaza.

However, this May Hey Guy leaves the buzz of NYC behind to bring the party to your town. So, is total freedom of expression still possible in modern rock today?

Well, in the vein of total freedom that is for the beholder to decide, however Hey Guy does have a
message.

...and Hey Guy’s message is simple

“You're perfect! Disarm your fears and rejoice in your life.With total artistic freedom of expression we can do more than just play music for you, instead we can share a musical experience together”
