Calgary klezmaniacs the Plaid Tongued Devils brought  some more upbeat klezmer music featuring  dueling electric violins, and an eight stringed guitar to Henotic Feb. 5.Ty Semaka of the Plaid Tongued Devils. Photo by Richard Amery
Lead signer Ty Semaka has a distinctive voice which makes his band sound like System of the Down playing klezmer music.
 The two violinists, Roxanne Young and  especially Jonathan Lewis were a marvel, with their instruments hooked up to a variety of guitar effects and playing some impressive solos, both alone and  harmonizing with each other.  They had dancers almost immediately who stayed on the floor. They dancers multiplied during the second set  which included  crowd favourites like ‘Help, I’m a Logo,’ as well as an intense drum solo, a bass solo and a couple more impressive violin solos.
