The 80,000-square-foot behemoth known as Brooklyn Bowl in the Linq at center Strip continues to host bands galore at its multilevel music venue, bowling alley and restaurant, and this past weekend was no different with multiple shows by Gogol Bordello and O.A.R.

Rockville, Md., rockers O.A.R., or On a Revolution, performed Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and the band — frontman Marc Roberge, drummer Chris Culos, saxophonist Jerry DePizzo, guitarist Richard On and bassist Benj Gershman — is known for the hit “Shattered (Turn the Car Around).”

O.A.R.’s “The Rockville LP” is set for release June 10 and is their eighth studio album, along with five live albums.

New York Gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello is known for theatrical stage shows, as the accompany photog gallery attests, and continuous touring. Their music also incorporates violin, saxophone, accordion and dub.

The group, with frontman Eugene Hutz, performed Friday and Saturday in the late performances at Brooklyn Bowl.

Thanks to Erik Kabik of Retna for his photog galleries of O.A.R. and Gogol Bordello.
