Opening for p-P is the enticing Santa Barbara culture-stew band Kalinka, the klezmer-plus band recently heard in all its rolling splendor at the Old-Time Fiddler's Convention, and bustling with exotic musical goodness.
In 2003, Headless Household released the conceptual polka album post-Polka, an acquired taste sort of thing. For five years now, the italics came off and post-Polka became a spinoff, all-polka band. So far, the band has been a one-hour-per-year kind of outfit. That could change. Or not.
For this gig, members of post-Polka are: Julie “polka queen” Christensen, bassist David Piltch, faux accordionist Dick Dunlap, drum man Tom Lackner, guitarman Joe Woodard, violinist/vocalist Sally Barr, and multi-instrumental wizard/nice guy Bill Flores, and… This is not your father’s polka, unless your father likes Jimmy Sturr, Brave Combo, Stravinsky, Zappa, John Zorn, Nino Rota, and modulating waltzes.
Recorded at the old Riviera Studios by Wayne Sabbak and at the Tompound by Tom Lackner, post-Polka was the sixth album by Headless Household and its 20th anniversary celebration project. It has gone on to be one of the band’s “hottest” sellers, especially in the digital realm. With luck and gumption, another post-Polka album is in the works… Go figure. Come polka.
