In keeping with a venerable Accordion Noir Festival tradition, Saturday night will officially be building to a raging dance party, featuring four bands from very different walks with at least one free-reed thing in common.

Tsunami Piñata (tsunamipinata.com) hails from the wilds of Washington's Pacific Northwest, echoing the geographical collision of the forests meeting the coast with the sound of the banjo meeting the accordion, playing from a consciously and conspicuously varied repertoire of world musics.

Portland, Oregon's Dogtooth & Nail (dogtoothandnail.bandcamp.com) exemplify one more of the varied textures of Cascadian accordion-banjo duos, with driving bluesy political folk tunes about environmentalism, feminism, anti-capitalism and creating change.

Queercoastal indie folk-rock with an intersectional angle, The Argyle Embargo (theargyleembargo.com) is working toward a more inclusive and equitable world with authentic storytelling, progressive pop sensibilities… and an accordion.

Cultural trends come and go in cycles, and we have good news: nearly 60 years after the polka craze was driven deep underground into thrift store record bins, the odometer has somehow ticked over and suddenly Polka Time! (polkatime.bandcamp.com) is the hottest dance ticket in town. There's no point in arguing, just shut up and bring your dancing shoes.
