What the Tango

BRETT CAMPBELL
8 pm., Friday October 25 | $15 advance, $18 day of show.
Alhambra Theatre
4811 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
 
[CONTEMPO TANGO] Argentine tango has long proved resilient enough to embrace other influences, from classical to various pop music. With What the Tango, Portland’s top tanguero, bandoneon master and dance teacher Alex Krebs and Portlander-turned-Limey Andrew Oliver (long one of the city’s leading jazzers), have infused Argentina’s greatest musical legacy with jazz, of course, but also rock, hip-hop and more. The band also includes Oregon Symphony members (who have their own Tango Pacifico ensemble led by violinist Erin Furbee), Trio Subtonic percussionist Jesse Brooke, rapper Momo Smitt and sultry-voiced singer Megan Yvonne. This white vinyl LP release concert also features Pink Martini multi-instrumentalist Martin Zarzar’s band.
