Spotlight on Hellblinki Sextet

Spotlight on …
Hellblinki Sextet
performing next Wednesday at Three Fifteen
If you’re looking for something unusual to break up your work week, check out the Wednesday night performance at Club Three Fifteen where you’ll find the Hellblinki Sextet.
Also performing will be Red This Ever.
Here’s how Hellblinki describes themselves: “Broken tooth blues in a tux, choral fantasies for agnostic angels, peg-leg waltzes on the rim of Mount Vesuvius … Psycho-cabaret, southern fried with guerrilla operatics … Pirate-blues, infused with punk rock cinematics.”
Hellblinki is prone to surprise, tension, and dramatic release. Dark and experimental, Hellblinki mixes elements of American folk, European cabaret, and punk rock experimentation into an intoxicating brew of transcendent madness.
According to Matt Frisch of Southeast Performer in Atlanta: “The world influences on this Asheville, N.C. sextet are absolutely staggering; everything from Russian folk to Italian concerto to Americana (and most everything in between) all find themselves present and accounted for, albeit all of the above given a more than punk edge aesthetic. Appropriately enough, the group itself describe its sound as a ‘Three Penny Opera meets Sesame Street … punk rock experimentation with a southern drawl,’ which, if one must be forced to categorize the band’s sound, is probably as fitting of a description as any other. The Hellblinki Sextet is without question one of the most unique, gifted and flat-out fun bands to come out of the region in a long time.”

Three Fifteen is located at 315 E. Council St. in Salisbury. The show is scheduled for 8 p.m. The cost is $5 for members, $10- for guests.
