London Autumn Antifolk Festival 2013

The London Autumn Antifolk Festival 2013 will take place on Saturday, November 16th at the 12 Bar Club in Soho (Denmark Street, London WC2H 8NL).

The second of the biannual festivals features a great mix of acts, with old favourites and well as newcomers. Filthy Pedro (that’s me writing about myself in the third person) returns from self-imposed exile with a rare performance, while Jinx Lennon, Ireland’s leading acoustic punk poet is confirmed.

The excellent Pissinboy make their début and we will be seeing a rare acoustic set from the raucous ‘The Fat White Family’, a Brixton based band who hate Yuppies and like getting their clothes off. We also have a début from a new Antifolk act, Amy Simpson, who came to our attention with the excellent ‘Boys Smell – Throw Rocks At Them’.

Watch out for the Pit Ponies, a great newish Antifolk who sing about miners amongst other things. We also have a taste of  the countryside, with the heartwarming Misk Hill Mountain Rambler III coming down from rural Nottinghamshire to play the midnight slot.

Continuing the international tradition, we have upcoming Czech artist, Misha Chylkova, who plays under the name Zipless Ellipsis. Following on from ‘The Missing Leech’ at the last Festival, we have another act from the new Spanish Antifolk scene centered in Barcelona, with Mad’zelle (Martina Borrut) flying in for a late night apperance.

Patrick Lyons will be hosting the evening.
