Sheffield’s first ever Antifolk Festival – 6th June 2013
Thursday, June 6th will see Sheffield’s first ever Antifolk Festival. The night features a mix of Antifolk artists from both the nascent Antifolk scene in Sheffield and from the wider movement.
New York’s Toby Goodshank, once of the legendary Moldy Peaches, heads up the festival. We also have Filthy Pedro, pioneer of the British Antifolk movement as well as the hugely entertaining Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers from Leeds.
Sheffield artists Little Robots and Dave Woodcock (with a rare solo performance), key players in previous Sheffield Antifolk events, will be playing along with Richard Brind, a new comer to Antifolk but an outsider song-writer ready made for the scene.
The venue is Penelopes ( 53-55 Arundel Gate, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S1 2PN ), a ‘hidden fortress’ attached to the Odeon Cinema in the city center. Walk up to the Odeon building and the door down into the magical world of Penelopes is hidden away on the right hand side.
Doors open 7:00 pm till 12:30pm.
Tickets £6 in advance (buy here at WeGotTickets), £7 on the door.
