Warning, Arlington Virginia!

Warning, Arlington Virginia!

They’re here, squeezing the very atmosphere you breathe!

The American Accordionists Association Festival
August 13-17, 2008
Arlington, VA USA

The horror . . . the horror . . . .

Fortunately, the Department of Homeland Security has an elite unit for just such an eventuality:


Warning, Arlington Virginia!

Unit the squad arrives, shelter in a sound-proof place, or play Death Metal or Wagner REALLY LOUD.

[Attention Stomach Steinway players: NotionsCapital is just funnin.’ Have a great festival. ]

    I intend to walk head-on into the accordion soundwaves, my head held high, with a distant look in my eye…

    and faint away with the pure euphoria.

    Thanks for the notice!

    You should certainly keep you head held high if you are playing your own accordion, otherwise your chin gets pinched by the bellows.

    You know, they are only squeezeboxes half the time.

    The other half they are an inspiration…

  4. Mike Licht Says:

    HL: You know, advocates of wind-powered electric generation are missing an important energy asset here.

    Imagine what they’d do to my late grandfather’s concertina!
