The Zlatne Uste Golden Festival
Hosted annually by the Zlatne Uste Balkan Brass Band, this utterly delightful, weekend-long Balkan throwdown kicks off tonight with a bill that also includes San Francisco's Brass Menazeri and the Kolev Family Bulgarian Band. Todays eight-hour main event boasts more than 40 traditional and modernist acts with a Balkans bent. Zlatne returns alongside bands from Bulgaria, Norway, Louisiana, Slovakia, Anatolia, Macedonia, Italy, and Iran. Transylvania's in the house! Everybody circle counterclockwise and screeeeeeam!
