Lemon Bucket Orchestra
Lemon Bucket + Svjata Vatra + Polky + DJ McHi !!!
BLOK the date: February 11th marks BLOK’s triumphant return with a badass line-up of east-euro bands celebrating freedom and culture under peaceful skies at Toronto’s legendary Opera House.
Special guest of the night: Estonian-Ukrainian alt-folk band SVJATA VATRA, flying directly from Tallinn for the show. They’re been leading Baltic support of Ukraine both culturally and financially since the beginning of the war, but have been exploring the intersection of Estonian and Ukrainian traditions for over a decade since frontman Ruslan Trochynskyj left famous Ukrainian band Haydamaky to live in Estonia.
Also with us, guerrilla-folk party-punks Lemon Bucket Orkestra, still high off their recent performance with Eugene Hutz of Gogol Bordello and ready to return to their home venue of the Opera House.
Polky will add their neo-village approach to Polish and Ukrainian folk music to the mix. You might have caught them recently playing in the Eaton Centre for thousands of unsuspecting Christmas shoppers, but you’re gonna want to hear them on the Opera House’s brand new system.
And DJ McHi will fill in the gaps with a fresh set of Ukrainian dub remixes featuring Dakha Brakha, Balaklava Blues, GO_A, and Kalush Orchestra.
$30 early bird (until January 23)
