Sidewalk Cafe’s 2009 Summer Antifolk Festival (Aug 7-16)

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.
