Booze flows while Bloodhound Gang wows Moscow

The American punk rock band, “Bloodhound Gang,” has performed at one of Moscow's night clubs as part of their European tour.

The band is on the tour to promote their new album “Hefty Fine”. They played their well-known hits as well as songs from their new album.

Though regularly performing in Russia, the band still gets rave reactions in the capital.

Bloodhound Gang is as well known for its eccentric onstage behavior. This time they did not disappoint the crowd as band members handed out glasses to the audience, filled them with rum, and then tore their own T-shirts.

The support band for the gig was a group called Montreal, which hails from Germany.

It was their debut on a Moscow stage, but they got a rapturous welcome from the crowd for their upbeat rhythms.

And of course, as with almost every punk band, they also put on a suitably chaotic and unruly stage show.

They encouraged fans to get them vodka from the bar, they asked girls to get up on stage and attempted a little crowd-diving.

Montreal seemed to get as much attention as the headline act.

The Bloodhound Gang is now heading to the Russian city of Ekaterinburg and then to England for a series of concerts.
