EMERGENCY AID BENEFIT FOR ANTIFOLK FOUNDER LACH
Featuring a stellar, all-star lineup of Antifolk superstars
He gave you Antifolk, The Antihoot (NYC’s longest-running open mic), the annual Antifolk Fest, hundreds of unforgettable songs and performances, created a brand-new music scene, and nurtured, supported, and inspired two generations of singer/songwriters.
Now — New York City — it is YOUR TURN to give back to music legend Lach and his family who are in urgent need of assistance.
Proceeds from the Thursday, February 9 Antifolk Fest night will be used to help provide this support. Lach's wife of twenty years, Anu, is undergoing chemotherapy and other treatments for metastatic breast cancer. In order to provide the full-time care needed for Anu and their eleven year-old son, Henry, Lach is currently unable to pursue his music, performance and touring careers, which are the family's sole source of income.
The February 9 bill features a host of close Lach colleagues and friends and includes a VERY SPECIAL reunion concert by world-famous scene-setters The Washingon Squares, and a live in-person performance by celebrated artist Michelle Shocked who wowed audiences at the recent 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Donations are MOST welcome and needed! You do not need to attend the concert to support Lach and his family. Contact us for details.
Do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime bill of Antifolk superstars.
