Gypsy violinist Roby Lakatos is the modern-day living gestalt of all the mystery that absorbs my hubby. The fiery virtuoso descended from a long line of innately talented gypsy musicians, and the wavy-haired, mustachioed Lakatos looks and plays the part, dashing off tunes both modern and classic in front of a troupe performing on cimbalom, guitar, upright bass, piano and violin. This, folks, is totally drop-dead fascinating, whether or not you're obsessed with gypsy.
He'll perform with the Roby Lakatos Ensemble tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, 2344 East Iliff Avenue; for tickets, $25 to $55, call 303-357-ARTS.
