Dufus' last show at Cake Shop in 2010 (more by Daniel Sieradski)
Manhattan's SideWalk Cafe is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and in honor of that, they'll be having anniversary events all year long. The first of these will be the winter edition of the bi-annual Antifolk Festival, which will take place at the cafe from February 19 to 28. The 10-day festival includes a number of performers each day, and the full schedule is below. One of the notable ones is on February 26, the cafe will host Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel (of Holy Modal Rounders), who have a long collaborative history, plus Forest Creature, Larkin Grimm, and others.
Forest Creature is the new duo of Seth Faergolzia (Dufus) and John Ludington, and the Sidewalk Cafe show is part of their February/March tour, which also includes a Brooklyn show later that night (2/26) at Goodbye Blue Monday (1087 Broadway) with Chingching. They recently revealed their first track, "Beasly," a meandering antifolk cut, which you can stream below, along with a list of all dates.

Galapagos Art Space hosts a CD release party for M. Lamar, who The New Yoker dubbed "a performance artist who celebrates and parodies the very idea of the chanteuse: he deconstructs the persona of the diva even as he wraps himself in divalike hauteur." The night also features performances by Justin Bond, Larkin Grimm and Novice Theory.
