Barron-Lach. The Third. At Hyde Park Book Club in Leeds
Thursday, February 1st, 2018
Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Chris Barron (of The Spin Doctors) and Antifolk legend Lach tour the UK once again playing the hits, the new stuff, the obscure stuff and stuff. Is this the best double-bill you'll see this year? Yup. Barron has sold over 10 million albums and his latest, 'Angels and One-Armed Jugglers' had landed on scores of Best of 2017 lists "Best of 2017, it's the cure for what ails you!"-No Depression Magazine). Lach is the creator of Antifolk and has been cited as a main inspiration for hundreds of artists including such names as Regina Spektor, Beck, Jeffrey Lewis, The Moldy Peaches and Suzanne Vega. His shows are a mix of critically acclaimed songs, stories and laughs. Here’s what some folks have said about the man. “Lach’s great!” - Bob Dylan "Lach is incredibly bright, influential, funny, and he’s got his own, sort of, counter-culture charm. He is part of New York folklore."-Suzanne Vega “The best songwriter that I’ve ever met.” - Adam Green (of The Moldy Peaches) “He’s f*cking funny!” - Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe) "★★★★★! Really quite magical!" - The Herald “★★★★★! One of the best gigs I’ve been to in recent years.” - Invernessgigs.co.uk "★★★★★! Thoroughly entertaining and unique!" - The Daily Record and Sunday Mail "★★★★★! Lach is a beat-punk-unplugged joy, and likely to send you home with several favourite new songs"- The Guardian
