SOP Denton: Brave Combo joins host Raina Douris

Polka music has taken Brave Combo to some wild places — from Japan and an episode of The Simpsons to playing David Byrne’s wedding. But, this North Texas mainstay doesn’t play traditional polka. They play it hard and fast like a rock band. In this dispatch from Sense of Place: Denton, Brave Combo’s Carl Finch and Jeffrey Barnes talk to World Cafe about why they love polka music and why it might just be the most punk genre of all.
