Weekend Watcher: Old World music with a New World Flare: Vagabond Opera; Jay Smooth and Charlie Ahearn; Americans are not Stupid

by Lucaso


Vagabond Opera strolls through old world gypsy classics, 1920's European Cabaret, up tempo Balkan beats, and Klezmer funk, all with a sideshow of theatrics that will get grannie out of the rocker and off to the show.



The aptly named 6 piece band hails from Portland, OR and puts the vibrato in neo-classical opera, complete with fedoras and striped stockings.


Take a look as we recently caught up with them at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA.
