Calgary's One Yellow Rabbit and a local rock band Plaid Tongue Devils have concocted In Klezkavania, a ribald Gothic opera mixing klezmer and ska in a mythical Eastern European country. The show features a suite of new songs written and performed by Plaid Tongue Devils Ty Semaka, Alan Kolodziejzyk, Jonathan Lewis, Chipp Robb and John McNeil. A full length album accompanies the show, a third release for the band.
In Klezkavania runs Feb. 24 to March 14 at The Big Secret Theatre. Call 403-299-8888 for info and tickets.
