I’d like to introduce Alilia Z, internet sensation, self-help coach, and self-appointed renegade street team. Here’s a video she made at the State Fair about the Walker’s Efterklang show tomorrow: her insistence with passersby is a hilarious flirtation with the monomania of truth-and-lies fandom obsession.
Tickets still available! The show is tomorrow, September 11, 8 pm. Common Roots is providing vittles! And there will be (free) beer!
If you need some final convincing of the caliber of these musicians, check this sweet Radiolab (WNYC) episode for Buke & Gass, and the “Take Away Show” for Efterklang’s “Mirador” on the always fascinating Blogotheque.
For all you attendees, here’s a helpful mini-dictionary of key terms:
Efterklang is Danish for “remembrance” or “reverberation”
Buke is a self-modified six-string former baritone ukulele
Gass is a guitar-bass hybrid
SEE YOU THERE!
