[TRANSYLVANIAN VOODOO BALL] One of the city’s most colorful Day of the Dead celebrations marks its seventh year with belly and swing dancers, wandering Butoh performers, a costume contest—oh yeah, and music. The ever-energetic gypsy-klezmer brass band Chervona and cellist-chaunteuse Ashia Grzesik (just back from an extended European sojourn with an intense new album) join headliners Vagabond Opera, who’ve added more musical and visual treats to their repertoire, as if its usual theatrical melange of dueling cellos, clarinet, accordion, operatic vocals, burlesque and hot club jazz weren’t already enough to awaken the ancestors.
