cutNscratch: broadcast on PBS of short films from the Grandin Theater Film Lab; Twisted Track Salted Pretzel Strip | Music


to Twisted TrackIn case no one has noticed, it’s mid-October. I mean, the time went by so fast. Maybe we should say mid October. And Oktober, of course, means Oktoberfest. It’s time to cosplay in Bavarian, with the fun shorts, suspenders and hats, and listen to some oom-pah music.

We oversimplify! However, a group of Kazim Shriners is right and will be exhibiting their music today at the Twisted Track Brewpub.

The Salty Pretzel Band, of the Roanoke Shrine Temple, will be expanding the brass-laden Alpenländische Volksmusik starting at 6:30 p.m., show host John Stump wrote in an email exchange. The group is asking for a donation of $ 10, but no one will be refused. The money finances the group.

Twisted Track patrons are familiar with the pretzels of the place, but other German-style culinary specialties will be on the menu, as well as an Oktoberfest beer.

“True to the Munich Oktoberfest, we will be asking the public to participate in lots of toasts throughout the evening,” Stump wrote.

Here’s a sample, courtesy of the trumpeter man Stump (with whom, for full disclosure, this columnist shared a scene or two, for rocking purposes): “Ein Prosit, Ein Prosit [a toast, a toast] der Gemütlichkeit [to cheer and good times]. “
