Webster Hall on Wednesday April 21st, Lach Presents…
7:30- Elizabeth Devlin – Devlin invokes influences from scratchy phonographs, combining bitter sweet, haunting vocals with poignant lyrics and angelic, cacophonous melodies. “A voice at once strong and ethereal. She accompanies herself on Autoharp, which casts her every song in shades of spooky.” -TimeOut NY
8:00pm – Isaac Gillespie – Twangy Americana meets Antifolk.
9:00 pm – Eric Wolfson –Early 2007 saw Wolfson’s first release, his signature song “Sleeping Is a Sucker’s Game,” which kicked off the second disc of the Anticomp Folkilation and was hailed for its “scene-skewering” lyrics by American Songwriter Magazine. But it was just the warm-up to Wolfson’s first full-length release, State Street Rambler, which Urban Folk Magazine raved “is a glorious mash-up of swaggering rock’n’roll that sounds just like you immersed your head in a bucket of 1969, simple, evocative balladry, and loony truth-to-power talking blues…It’s an unbridled wild horse of a record, with a fat streak of goofy humor and not a little social outrage.”
10:00pm – Don McCloskey – Philly’s Entertainer of the year! Think Robin Williams meets Springsteen with a little Kid Rock thrown in for good measure.
11:00pm – Lach in ‘The Day I Went Insane’ – Yeah, it’s a bit strange, Lach presenting Lach. Perhaps the title of his one-man show, ‘The Day I Went Insane’ is a clue to what’s going on with him these days? Lach is the founder of the Antifolk movement. Performers as varied as Beck, Hamell on Trial and The Moldy Peaches cite Lach as a major influence. Lach will be headlining the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August and tonight will be previewing the one-man show he will be bringing there. “Think battered acoustic thrashings, think sarky, smart-mouthed wit and wisdom but most importantly think Lach. Lach is rarely less than a face-ache funny, beat-punk-unplugged joy, and likely to send you home with several favourite new songs”- The Guardian UK
