VULGARGRAD

Friday 30 January

After an 8-month absence from Australian stages, VulgarGrad, that mysterious band of Russian criminals, have returned to steal your hearts and wallets and anything else that's not nailed down. Fronted by Polish-born gravelly-voiced strongman and star of stage and screen, Jacek Koman – some say he’s a huge TV star in his native country – VulgarGrad are the only band in the country that play music by, for, and about Russian thieves: raucous drinking songs, melancholy waltzes, manic oompah and hot Soviet-era swing. Be prepared for gun-slinging, vodka-swilling, foul-mouthed disorder, and watch out for the biggest, most triangular instrument around, the contrabass balalaika. You will dance or the trumpeter will shoot you. With special guests: JARON FREEMAN-FOX & THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYTHING (Canada)
