Event Archive - Accordion Noir presents an Evening of Pleasing Squeezing: Natasha Enquist, Alex Cooper, Rowan Lipkovits

Tue. June 8th 2010 The Fort Cafe (All Ages)
8pm doors at 7:30pm
Rowan Lipkovits fronts the jug band of the damned, the Creaking Planks, and specialises in musical impishness: squeezing music out of his box which was never intended for it and playing sad songs with great gusto and happy abandon. Once you feel you know what to expect, he ducks and weaves again, throwing the listener and avoiding being pinned down.

Natasha Enquist straddles the worlds of the musical, the visual and the dramatic, cutting a figure on the theatrical stage and no less striking behind the megaphone with Bučan Bučan. On this occasion she is playing in partnership with Alexander "Sunheart" Cooper, controlling an impressive and startling array of electronic sound manipulation equipment to make you forget every prior way you've heard the accordion used or abused.

Accordion Noir is alone in its field, for three and a half years the pre-eminent podcast covering the global beat of the punky and vibrant accordion renaissance.

Doors at 7:30, admission is $5.
