Sidewalk Cafe

The Summer Antifolk Festival is taking place August 7th through 16th at Sidewalk Cafe in NYC (94 Ave A). Some highlights over the two-plus-week festival include Jason & Rachel Trachtenburg, Jaymay, Soft Black, Dufus and Larkin Grimm.

More background on the festival and the full schedule below...

......

Celebrating 25 years of semi-annual Antifolk performances (a winter event mirrors the summer one), the festival is a showcase for a diverse cast of talented musicians and spoken-word performers, newcomers and veterans alike. New York City's Antifolk community has been a welcoming launching pad for well-known artists such as Beck, The Moldy Peaches, Jeffrey Lewis, Regina Spektor, Hamell on Trial, and Nellie McKay. The Sidewalk Café has been the scene's proud stomping ground since 1992.

Is that Josh Fox we're playing after the same fellow noted for directing documentaries and CRAZY theater pieces? If so, AWESOME.
