Calgary klezmaniacs the Plaid Tongued Devils make their debut at Henotic, Dec. 5
 They were to play in December, but couldn’t make it  due to a blizzard.
Plaid Tongued Devils“We got caught in the great blizzard of ought nine,” said Taber born  Plaid Tongued Devils frontman Ty Semaka, who is looking forward to playing Lethbridge for the first time in a year.
“We’re bringing both violinists. They always add a little extra to the show. For most of the show they play together and they’ll play solos,” Semaka continued adding they will also be playing a couple new songs the group has written over the past six months.
“They are really quite different. One of them is in a Balkan key and is quite complex. Another one sounds like Leonard Cohen at a Bar Mitzvah. Another one is  is a waltz in a minor key, of course pretty much all of our songs are in minor keys.”
The  Plaid Tongued Devils are looking forward to returning to lethbridge.
“I grew up in Taber, so I know that city. We always get a really good crowd there,” he said.
The show begins at 9 p.m., Feb. 5 with Brenna Lowrie opening it. Tickets cost $10.
