Up from the Underground Winter Antifolk Festival Highlights 50 Artists from Legendary Songwriting Scene at East Village’s Sidewalk Cafe, February 22 through 26
Nearly 50 songwriters and other performers who have drawn attention within the underground network of artists centered at Sidewalk Cafe in the East Village will be highlighted in the 2012 Winter Antifolk Festival from February 22 through 26.
For almost two decades the Festival has featured the most promising and prominent performers from the scene at Sidewalk. The venue is known for serving as a launching pad for the careers of artists like Regina Spektor, Jeffrey Lewis, and The Moldy Peaches and also is home to a supportive and deep-seated artistic community.
Among those scheduled to perform are Larkin Grimm, Level 2, Turner Cody, Jon Berger, Debe Dalton, and Emily Einhorn, as well as Osei Essed and Ching Ching, two Sidewalk favorites making long-awaited return visits to the club. The 2012 Winter Antifolk Festival is held at Sidewalk Cafe, 94 Avenue A (Sixth Street). No cover, one drink minimum.
