UPDATE: Accordion causes school evacuation
Awaiting comment from Weird Al.
How exactly was the accordion in a band room suspicious?
1 part personal paranoia + 1 part ignorance + 1 part stupidity + 1 part fear culture.
Lucky it wasn't a bagpipe. ..

Maybe it looked like a clock.
Respectfully, the accordian may not have been a bomb itself, but in the right hands and the right situation (say, a trained accordian-player at a wedding) it is pretty much a bomb-making facility, from a musical-taste perspective.
My daughter's baby sized violin was a dangerous instrument of torture :O)
I get this; every time I hear an accordion I also run from the room.
A true weapon of mass disruption, devastating. I wonder what they'd think about my guitar case??
Hold a guitar like a baseball bat and you are armed and dangerous.
Decades ago I had an employee who was ethnically English & Dutch.
I had a CD player in my office. This CD player could not be audibly heard in her work area.
However, I could play one particular bagpipe CD, the hair on the back of her neck would stand up. The first couple times she was sure there was a disaster happening shortly & we had to investigate.
After a while, she'd just call my desk & say "turn that off."
Funeral pipes, dance pipes, drill pipes, no problem. Battle pipes, 'nuther story!
Yes, when things were slow this was a diversion....
I never tested an accordion CD, sorry.
Accordions are furtive and mean;
So keep them in close quarantine,
Don't sneak into class
To sit with the brass
Or cops will be soon on the scene.
