This event takes place over 2 evenings of Friday and Saturday March 15 & 16th with more than 30 bands, including Orkestar Zirkonium, the Bucharest Drinking Team and the Nu Klezmer Army at the Russian Center on Capitol Hill located at 704 19th Ave. East. Balkan Night Northwest promises to be sweaty, raucous fun. And phyllo-wrapped treats, Croatian sausages, and slow-roasted sauerkraut should keep you from passing out.
BALKAN NIGHT NORTHWEST features bands with membership from Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Albania, Greece, Bulgaria as well as home-grown afficionados. They have over a thirty bands, just from the Seattle area! Amazing! There will be something for everyone. You don’t need a partner, and you can dance how you like or join in with the others.
They will have a Mainstage for the dance bands where you can expect wall-to-wall music until midnight both Friday and Saturday nights!
For a more casual atmosphere, you can relax in the Kafana room, have a drink and enjoy music in a more intimate setting.
And Balkan Night NW is offering a link on their site to purchase special Brown Paper Tickets by Jim Woodring and Ellen Forney, with all proceeds to benefit Cafe Racer for only an extra 25 cents. Thanks Balkan Night NW!
