I’m kind of at a loss of how to describe this, but I guess the closest I can come from an American in Athens perspective is to call it the Greek version of “torch” – that sultry, smokey music that quickly whisks its audience back to another time and place. Though in 2010 you’ll be in the lovely courtyard theater at the Badminton Theater in Athens (well, Goudi actually!) all you need to do is close your eyes and listen and you’ll find yourself transported to Athens of the 1960’s.
For me personally, this is an absolue throwback to Chicago’s very own Deni’s Den (my college ere hangout — ok, it was post 1970’s, but the great thing about Chicago’s Greek American community is that they lagged a bit behind Greece, so the ear of the Greek “bouat” or nightclub, which may have disappeared in Athens by the 70’s, lasted well into the last 80’s in American city’s with large Greek population (perhaps elsewhere in the Greek diaspora it was the same).
SO if you are adverse to th late late nights of today’s smokey mega-clubs, try an evening spent in the courtyard theater with Popi Asteriadi, Michali Violari, Kostas Karalis, Lizatta Nikolaou & Katie Chomata and let them lead you on a journey back to the now disappearing night club era of the 60’s and 70’s
Badminton Courtyard Theater, Goudi, 211108602.
Wed, Thurs., Fri., Sat.: 9.30 pm. Tickets.: € 20.
