Vagabond Opera 

When: Fri., Sept. 17, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $12

Vagabond Opera makes the trip down from its Portland home to present its unique take on musical mayhem with a combination of cabaret, burlesque, tango, Balkan beats, klezmer, rock, Arab music, Parisian hot jazz, and, yes, opera that'll leave your head spinning. The ensemble sings in fifteen languages and mixes its unclassifiable original tunes with covers of songs made famous by Jacques Brel, Tom Waits, Raymond Scott, and Edith Piaf (think Gogol Bordello playing Duke Ellington in a Brazilian dive bar). Their last Ashkenaz show sold out, so grab tickets soon. Vagabond Opera plays on Friday, Sept. 17, at Ashkenaz (1317 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley). 9 p.m., $12. Ashkenaz.com
