Underdog Instrument Grudge Match: Millennial Edition

The Accordion Noir Festival wraps with a revival of this fan favourite mash-up of music, competition and spur-of-the-moment theatre. Initially conceived as a comedic battle between the musically maligned, this year’s edition shakes things up by embedding the accordion into trendy ‘hipster’ genres including Team Trad, Team Musical Theatre and Team Silicon Valley North. Featuring a stellar cast of Vancouver musicians and multidisciplinary artists who trash-talk as well as they play, the Grudge Match promises to be a stirring argument for accordion supremacy and a very good time.

Sunday, September 10
Doors 7:30 PM. Show 8:00 PM
Russian Hall, 600 Campbell Ave
Tickets $12 advance, $15 at the door
