oh what a night...
La Minor (RUS)
We'll be dancing to their sonic street mix of DirtyFolk, SpeedPolka, RusskyDisko, LowlifeUrbanStreetChansons, GangsterSwing and OdessaBeat- Klezmer.
They've been threatening us with their return for some time now and finally it's become a reality: They're coming back! Cross your heart and hope to die, La Minor are blasting in all the way from St. Petersburg to our kulturska dacha on the Zueri Volga, as always running as clear and freely as Peter the Great's personal vodka.

We'll be dancing to their sonic street mix of DirtyFolk, SpeedPolka, RusskyDisko, LowlifeUrbanStreetChansons, GangsterSwing and OdessaBeat- Klezmer. Like Putin's comrades after he triumphed in another clean election. It's the La Minor sound: Situated in the voluminous and mysterious expanses of the eternal Russian soul, at once loose as a goose and as sad as a street dog. And it's all live and authentic and acoustic, straight from the gut by way of the liver to the heart, then burning deep into you, we promise. Plenty of veelings, comrades, and more veelings - at times tricky and sharp like the knife of a St. Petersburg pimp. Or generous and warm as the gutter snipe with the beautiful heart - you're invited into her arms and to her bosom comrades, comrades you're invited! Their music is driven by the Bajan button accordion and the wailing and seducing saxophone and the words are presented by their pale, draculan singer Slawa Schalygin, crooning about cutthroat badboys, seductive streetprincesses, loaded sailors, tough love, fiery passion, pulsing pain and home sweet home: either a smokey dive or alas, a moldy prison dungeon.

Let's just hope and pray that the much stomped on boards of our venerable stage can hold up to this colorful, colossal and tight knit band of modern- day sonic Rasputins visiting here at the Musik Kremlin west of ze Volga. You'll be saber dancing, comrades and toasting the Russian soul presumably in the bass voice of the immortal Fyodor Chaliapine: «NA ZDOROV'YE!»
