Barbara Adler / FANG

Vancouver's most famous (and only) accordion power trio, Fang plays its devastatingly exuberant word-and-song mash-ups on squeezebox, electric bass, and drums. Leader Barbara Adler’s lyrics are snapshot stories and one-liners, as written by your rattlesnake-mouthed, laugh-in-church-funny little sister. Quick-witted, irreverent, and surprisingly danceable, Fang is out to make you forget everything that polka has ever done to you.
