Fri. June 4th 2010 Sunset Labs (All Ages)
8pm - 4am doors at 7pm
Presented by: Adam
The Bolting Brassicas and Friends Circus show, at the Sunset Room, 401 Herald Street. Performing two sets of Balkan Gypsy and Klezmer Marching Band music with Circus Performances and three DJ's!

For one show only in the big city!!! Victoria's Sunset Room will rock and thump when a 14 piece Brass and Percussion Marching Band from the untamed wilds of Lasqueti Island are let loose to wow and loot Victoria!

The Bolting Brassicas Marching Band are a street-side ensemble that play a stirring catalogue of Balkan Gypsy and Klezmer tunes which are loud, happy and danceable! THIS is not your Grandma's Marching Band! 

Later on, stay up and strap on throughout the night to dance with acclaimed Rainbow Cathedral DJs: Beatfarmer from Lasqueti as well as Mountain Eyes from Victoria and Ambrosia from Galiano will be spinning their tunes! 

The story of the Bolting Brassicas from Lasqueti Island is not the story of your everyday Balkan Gypsy Klezmer Marching Brass Band from any remote community . . .   

The story of the Brassicas is a heartwarming tale of struggles met and adversities overcome by a ragtag gaggle of stalwart musicians from a remote Island where the fine trappings of culture, like espressos, electricity, soap and Blackberries, are hard to come by. Fast Forward a few years: The Bolting Brassicas have now catapulted themselves from the woods and into festivals and concerts all over BC and Washington and has developed a worldwide following online. They have quickly become known as an amazing band not to be missed!
