Band of Gypsies

Since the British Invasion, Americans have been such suckers for any artsy music from overseas. Because of this, we imagine that Caspian Hat Dance – a Rotterdam, Netherlands-based band that plays traditional Gypsy, klezmer, and “misbehaved village wedding” music – will attract a mighty following when they perform at The Lost Leaf, 914 North Fifth Street. Personally, they remind us a little bit of Frenchman Yann Tiersen (headmaster of the Amélie soundtrack) with some DeVotchKa (who aren’t even foreigners, but might as well be) thrown in for good measure.
