It’s part talk show, part CD launch and part poetry slam. At least it was on opening night.

This fun, quirky, 45-minute offering from Vancouver “accordion power rock” band Proud Animal (Barbara Adler, formerly of the Fugitives, Gavin Youngash and Aaron Klassen) is a different show every night, as well as a live podcast.

One constant is an interview with the band’s “Winnipal” du jour — an interesting local they’ve met since arriving in town. This time it was Lyndon, the barefoot “lifestyle artist” who founded the House Party of Canada.

Besides performing the indie pop-folk tunes off their new self-titled EP, the band will also write a new song for each show based on the audience’s suggestions.

— Carolin Vesely

From the Fringe program:

Podcast nerds, CBC obsessives and hopelessly addicted NPR fans: this is for you.

Barbara Adler (formerly of 5 STAR Fringe group The Fugitives) and Proud Animal bring you comedy-assisted learning with a musical flair.

Stories of small town British Columbia, homework, accordion power rock and the world's second or third analogue PowerPoint presentation. When we say "come again," we mean it: every show is different.
