It might be the hipsters or the bagels, but Montreal boasts a solid klezmer fan-base. Let’s all shout l’chaim to one of the coolest of the klezmer crowd, Daniel Kahn, who is shaking his accordian-oboe-violin-bass-tambourine flair for our whiskey n’ socialism crowd. In addition to his own music, the best of the oldies (and by oldies, I mean the shtetl top 100) are given a punk kiss by this natural showman, so get ready to dance and perhaps daven your socks off.
Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird flies into Sala Rossa (4848 St Laurent) at 8 p.m on March 9. $12.
