London, UK NW6 7JR
Chris Brokaw and Geoff Farina return to the UK at the end of a lengthy European tour, and to coincide with the show, will launch their second release together, a new limited edition tour release of solo rarities and fresh covers, out on DAMNABLY! These two legends of post punk will play 2 sets featuring ancient ragtime/blues/folk standards and a selection of old and new material from their extensive back-catalogues.
Support comes from Susie Hug, who previously fronted The Katydids and now continues a successful solo career and recent albums recorded with Travis and Calexico, Simon Kobayashi (smallgang) and Alex Carter (Armchair Songs) as Your New Friend who play incredibly pretty songs with a rare level of skill and complexity, and Former Utopia's mortally sad, black humoured alt. folk reminiscent of Lambchop, Mountain Goats and on occasion Shellac.
