Equal parts punk rock and world music, T.C. Costello has been delighting and terrorizing audiences the world over for the past few years. His shows encourage audience participation on nearly every song and feature many instruments such as the accordion, the obscure 1920s marxophone, and the khaen, the national folk instrument of Laos. His repertoire of traditional songs feature everything from a 2,000-year old Korean love song to a rebellious English sea chanty. His original songs, based on world music but with punk intensity, are often humorous, sometimes political, and without exception, his songs go well with beer.
