Gypsy-punk-dub band Gogol Bordello’s sixth album, Pura Vida Conspiracy, continues the group’s intentional trailblazing. “The message of this record is the quest for self-knowledge beyond borders and nationalities,” says frontman Eugene Hütz. “Every culture is a useful mask, but it is just a mask. To get to know your actual human self, you have to get behind all the masks.” What emerges onstage is an all-out, no-holds-barred rock event that pogos between genres, makes no apologies and takes no prisoners.

Tuesday 3/29. $29.99-34, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater. 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4948.
