So, the Accordion Noir Festival is a thing…

Every once in a while, an event so bizarrely attractive ends up on our radar and we just have to share it with you.

Let’s talk about the 10th Annual Accordion Noir Festival. Four fabulous nights of melodeon fun where box instruments meet the whimsical goth sensibility of a Tim Burton movie. If you missed last night’s kick off of Accordion Drink-o Bingo, there’s still plenty of outré excitement to be had.

Tonight, there’s not not one, but two(!) concerts, with the North American debut of Finland’s accordion master, Antti Paalanen (pictured) and a concertina dance party to follow. Tomorrow, you can attend the release party for local accordion player Geoff Berner’s album and Sunday is the Underdog Instrument Grudge Match between three teams of accordion aficionados.

And now you know. Do with this information what you will…
