T-Minus Four Months Until Accordion Festival 2012 | Arts & Culture
Everyone! Take out your day planners and flip ahead to August. Now grab the nearest pen or pencil and scribble in the following item: “Accordion Festival 2012”. It’s the second weekend of August and we can barely contain ourselves.
Last year was a hoot with the parade of accordions and the bars filled with accordionists playing through the night. This year should not disappoint.
One of the headlining performers for Saturday night’s concert is a actually the most amazing thing you’ll ever seen.
Excuse us as we switch into first person mode. I saw Duckmandu in 2008 in Spokane during an event called “Monsters of Accordion”. He’s kind of a monster, like scary awesome. He’s playing that Saturday and he does mostly accordion covers of classical songs and punk rock. He has an album dedicated to the Dead Kennedy’s.
We’ll remind you later this year of the festival. In the meantime, just scribble down “Accordion Festival 2012” during the second weekend of August. Here's the rest of the festival schedule. We’ll see you there.
