Something tells me Those Darn Accordions needs to play the Rocky Mountain Accordion Celebration in Philipsburg, Mont. Maybe it's the festival-starting call to arms: "Get on your accordions," shouted by Dale Pahrman, according to The Missoulian. Maybe it's the pubs with chalkboard signs that read "Accordions Welcome."
Performers at this year's event -- the 10th annual -- included the Smilin' Scandinavians, the KingBees of the Bayou and The Awesome Polka Babes (a mysterious Montana-based group that doesn't seem to have a website).
Maybe next year.
P.S. Quote of the day, by the KingBee's Mark Sherman: "The accordion was thought to have been the devil's instrument."
