BREAKING: Live Bandoneon on 9th St - SATURDAY

Thankfully we can re-run this for today--Saturday, 3/7. Apologize for the false alert last night. The details from Triangle Tango are below. If you want to have dinner at Metro 8 in conjunction with this milonga, reservations are recommended.


Breaking news from the live tango frontline:
"Bandeonista Osvaldo Barrios will be playing at the milonga at the Metro 8 restaurant on 9th St. [in Durham] tonight. The milonga runs from 9 pm -2 am but i haven't been able to get a fix on when exactly Barrios will be playing."

That source prefers to remain on the downlow. Do your own digging.

Update: Eric did, and found this link:

"Triangle Tango and tangueros, Dan Plonski & Eduardo Lazarowski, are excited to be hosting bandoneon player, Osvaldo Barrios, at Metro 8, Saturday March 7th.

is originally from Argentina and has been playing the bandoneon since the age of 12. He has performed with many orchestras including, Miguel Calo, Mariana Mores, Jorge Caldara, and Mario DeMarco. More information on Osvaldo’s career can be found at
