The more European version of U.S. brodown party-hearty holiday behavior is brass-band "gypsy" culture. Encouraged binge drinking, shouting men dancing, and loud music is what St. Patrick's Day is all about, right? So Vagabondage brings all this together. Singing to us from inside an inebriated accordion, the duo slurs sea chanties, murder ballads, and, well, to be honest, drinking songs. Grand plonking waltzes, jaunty reels, and scorching torch complaints have everyone swaying along and madly toasting to whatever. T&A and the Sweet Trade join them.
