One not to miss…
Cited as the main inspiration by Beck, Jeffrey Lewis, Moldy Peaches and many others, LACH is the artist who originated the Anti-Folk scene in Greenwich Village, New York.
We have been so lucky to have staged performances at The Adelphi by Anti-Folk heroes including Kimya Dawson (Moldy Peaches) and Toby Goodshank, Dufus, Major Matt Mason, Prewar Yardsale. Two Anti-Folk heroes who have played The Adelphi many times have become patrons of the club, namely Jeffrey Lewis and Ed Hamell (Hamell on Trial).
