The Creaking Planks 11th Anniversary Party At The Wise Hall January 29

25 Jan

CreakingPlanks2This Friday, The Creaking Planks are hosting their 11th Anniversary Party at The Wise Hall. The Creaking Planks, if you don’t know them, are “East Van’s jug band of the damned (that will) take to the stage to do their unique combination of holy idiocy, colliding the canny with the foolish, the sacred with the profane, and Britney Spears with the accordion.” Really we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.  This Friday, they will have guests including the Myrtle Family Band and Vancouver’s own Sidewalk Cellist who will take classics from the concert hall and take them the streets.  She provides a musical mix of everything from Bach to Nirvana, jazz to heavy metal and more.  The events kicks off at 8:30 pm. Tickets are $10 and available at the door.
