Aquarium are the true veterans of Russian rock, with more than 40 years in the business. During this time pretty much everything and everyone has changed at Aquarium, except for Boris Grebenshikov — aka BG — its irreplaceable leader. After playing around with various musical genres, BG went back to his perestroika-era sound. Last February BG released his latest album, “Vremya N” (Time of N), so expect some new material at the Crocus City Hall concert.
Where: Crocus City Hall
