Best. Polka & Western. Ever.

Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen sailed into town at dusk, so I headed off to the Polish club for the circus.

Talented musicians, brilliant lyricists, comic actors, and great performers, they are probably my favorite unplugged troupe between here and Salvador da Bahia.

For dreams are made of water
And clouds are made of sky
