Kevin and I went to see this fantastic band over the weekend. I love it when musicians mix completely unexpected styles together. The Haberdashery Ensemble (an uber-talented trio based out of L.A.) played this crazy-wonderful mix of traditional Hungarian/Eastern European gypsy music with jazz and classical elements thrown in. And just when you felt like you were getting settled in, they'd mix it up with something wild like a haunting Danny Elfman tune, or a heartbreakingly beautiful version of a Beatles song, or even nuttier, a cover of YMCA (yes, the one and only). In a word, it was awesome. If they are ever playing in your area, you should go!
