Barrage “Animado” 2011

“Barrage is a high-octane fiddle fest with its five violinists with rock star looks and athletic prowess completely obliterate the stereotype of the nerdy violinist with extraordinary musicianship and performances that are laced with traces of everything from country to metal. Toss in some wild and interesting percussions, strong vocals, a tremendously talented back-up band, expertly-executed choreography and the result is a show that would blow the doors off both “Stomp” and “Riverdance.” Tickets are $35 to $45.
