The Underscore Orkestra — interview on tour in Australia

The Underscore Orkestra are from Portland, Oregon. They belt out an eclectic and energetic brand of gypsy, Balkan and swing — actually, has there ever been a brand of all that which is not eclectic and energetic?

Maybe not. But The Underscore Orkestra does all that with moustache wax.

The band is on tour in Australia and New Zealand from 31 December 2012 to mid-March 2013, and I caught up with Jorge Kachmari as the band was about to take the micro-stage at The Phoenix Bar in Canberra City.

The audio file of that chat is here, and in the shake of a lamb’s whatsit, the text will be at Timber and Steel.

  1. Apologies if you’re seeing an error message in the Soundcloud box above. The servers went down due to a load balancing error several hours ago and the techs are still sorting it out. To complete my tech challenges, my phone won’t let me get to the text above to change it. These things are sent to challenge us, and this too will pass!
