Late show: Accordian Noir presents Creaking Planks, Ana Bon-Bon, and Raghu Lokanathan *** The jug band of the damned, the Creaking Planks, celebrate their 7th anniversary and twelve more months playing music together, further charting strange new courses through peculiar sonic seas. Joining them on this voyage are Raghu Lokanathan, Prince George's philosopher-king of singer-songwriters, as well as Vancouver’s accordion-queen-in-absentia, Ana Bon-Bon, taking a rare tour of the colonies from her new seat in London, England! This performance is a presentation of CFRO 102.7 fm's Accordion Noir radio show.
Late show: Memewar presents: The Creaking Planks, Jen Miller, and The Fictionals (improv comedy troop)
The Creaking Planks strap on forgotten and dismissed instruments of simpler times, pre-emptively gathering the tunes and jingles of today from the ashbins of tomorrow and re-presenting them in a novel anachronistic setting and style. Together, their sum suggests nothing stranger that the iPod of 1906. The F-Holes "...impeccably authentic, raucously entertaining blend of gypsy jazz, zippy dixieland, viper blues and roots."-Darryl Sterdan, Sun Media "...blend swing, blues, country, bluegrass and jazz, creating a fiery concoction that will surely knock you on your feet." -Jared Story, Uptown Magazine Also, Rail Ale Tuesday: every Tuesday at 5 PM we offer a different cask of craft beer. Check our website or Twitter feed for updates on what the cask will be each week and come down for the cask tapping!
