Filthy Pedro presents: Brighton Antifolk Summer BrerBQ

Filthy Pedro presents a free entry Antifolk special showcasing acts from Brighton and New York on Wednesday 16th August at the Marwood, 52 Ship Street, Brighton
BN1 1AF.

Now that’s I’ve settled into my new home of Brighton, I’m putting on a night with some of the best of the local Antifolk/ indie folk acts along with special guest Brer Brian from New York.

Brer Brian graduated from the famous Antifolk class of 2000, centered on the Sidewalk Cafe and featuring the likes of the Moldy Peaches and Jefferey Lewis. He featured on Rough Trade’s Antifolk Volume 1 compilation and was signed to Olive Juice Music in the US. Considered by many, including myself, as one of the most talented Antifolk acts not to be signed to a major label, he’s well worth checking out.

With a sideline in acting, modeling and swearing, Larry Pickleman is one of the original Brighton Antifolk set and he returns to deliver more biting observations on everything that’s wrong with everything.

Also playing is Boy in the Cupboard, a Brighton based duo, one of which plays in the punk folk stalwart Blythe Power. Expect songs about night buses and the ennui of the modern world of work.

Dennis Scunt, Brighton’s Antifolk busking troubadour returns from self imposed exile to regale us with three chords and buckets of charm.

I’ll also be playing along with Medders and possibly some of the other Carthaginians.


Wednesday, 16th August 2017. The Marwood will be open all day, so come along when you want.


Marwood Bar and Cafe, 52 Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF. TEL : 01273 382063.
