Accordion Noir 10th anniversary celebration cabaret!
Because you only turn ten once, in addition to our campaign to drum up cover versions of our theme song, we’re throwing a little concert this Friday night (Friday, November 18th) at Spartacus Books (3378 Findlay Street) in celebration of having lasted an entire decade on the air with our impossible little weekly radio program on CFRO Co-Op Community Radio (100.5 fm in Vancouver, BC!)
With the 500th episode behind us, the next milestone was inevitable: the improbable alt-accordion radio program is on track to reach ten years of weekly broadcasts by the first week of December this year. But surely celebrating a decade is worth something a little more special than cramming into a radio booth?
So we decided to invite some of our favorite local accordionists to celebrate with us in concert a little bit before — which we can then record, edit and air on the radio for our actual 10th anniversary 8)
So please come join us with an unforgettable evening of a distinctly Vancouver variety of squeezeboxery featuring: the slow burn of Dawn Zoe, Old World fire from Joana Reis (from Portugal!), rootsy gospel blues with Ana Bon-bon, the theatrical flair of Alison Jenkins, post-doc post-rock with Barbara Adler, avant-garde musical clowning by Accordion Noir Festival director Katheryn Petersen, sublime foolishness from the jug band of the damned the Creaking Planks, and a Very Noir set by our own Squeezebox Circle Orchestra!
Admission by donation, suggested donation starts at $10 (a dollar per year, not bad!), but no one turned away due to lack of funds.
