Southern Gothic 2012: Artist Rundown Part III

Southern Gothic
"A weekend of blues, country, krautrock, stoner rock, electro, cajun, psych-folk, honky tonk, anti-folk & punk gospel."

Southern Gothic returns to The Crane Lane Theatre for another year this weekend as a dozen incredible international artists descend upon Phoenix Street. See below for a short note on who's who of the 2012 line-up for Southern Gothic.

Jeffrey Lewis

Jeffrey Lewis
Who?: Jeffrey Lewis
When?: Monday - 4.30pm
How much?: €10
Why?: The author of Anti-folk himself returns to Cork less than a year after his last colourfully outstanding visit on Phoenix Street. As many comic book capers as melodic marvels await. This vividly imaginative New Yorker's afternoon set is not to be missed.

Why?: The experience of catching Ken Keppeler and Jeanie McLerie live is "an odyssey into the people's music of Louisiana, New Mexico, Arizona and the entire southwest of the United States, from the Mississippi River to the coast of California." Need I say more?!
