Tragos Amargos

Did I mention I love the accordian?

Tragos Amargos @ Backspace 6.1.2010

When I left the house the other night to see CFTPA play a show at Backspace there was no way I could have known I would be blown away by the opening act. Tragos Amargos plays the kind of music you might hear drifting out of a cheap old radio if your life was set in some paradisaical location for a film from the 1940’s. Seriously talented vocals poured softly over energetic and elegant guitar, ukulele, and accordion. Between this incarnation and their better-known project, Y La Bamba, these Portland musicians are now among my favorites in the local scene.
