NZ's most unbalanced exponents of gypsy-punk-cabaret mayhem, are re-forming for two gigs only. After breaking up over a year ago, the BBBB's have escaped the asylum with the help from some friends. They'll be appearing on the 1st of April at the King's Arms Tavern with a "secret international guest band", and then on the 2nd at Leigh Sawmill Cafe with Australian gypsy death-core revolutionaries The Barons Of Tang. This will be the only chance to see this jaw-dropping, mind-blowing and body-exploding live show for a very long time.

The Benka Boradovsky Bordello Band:
Many will know the Benka band from 4 years of touring NZ, opening for Beirut, and appearing at festivals all over such as Splore, Prana, Parihaka, Jambalaya, and "The Famous Spiegeltent" at AK09. After six months in Berlin and more extensive touring, the band exploded, and sailed off into the wild blue yonder. But they're docking again, extremely fleetingly! Expect all the usual chaos- spontaneous combustion in the audience, clothes thrown off in frivolous rampage, macabre stories, physical and mental intoxication, debauchery, legs turning into snakes and dancing, dancing, dancing! Come on a voyage through the heart of the apocalypse, into unlit and illimitable corridors of eldritch fantasy...

The Barons Of Tang:
It was the winter of 2007 and what had started as a “joke” between a handful of down and out Melbourne musos, quickly spiralled out of control into the musical juggernaut known as, The Barons of Tang! Initially rehearsing in a well-known Melbourne squat, The Barons cut their teeth with performances for local underground theatre and circus troupes. With a taste for travel and chaos, the Barons of Tang embarked on 2 years of merciless touring, leaving a trail of battered and bruised dance floors in their wake.

Lashing tango, rockabilly, metal and gypsy feels together with hard hitting guitar riffs, double kick blast beats and massive horn arrangements, The Barons of Tang serve up their self described ‘gypsy death-core’. The catchy tunes and punk ethos all tie together to mean one thing, dancing is inevitable!
