    Strange Victory + the CQAF presents :

    with special guests


    Thursday 30 April @ The Black Box Belfast
    Tickets £7 from www.cqaf.com Doors at 8pm

    Part folkie, part indie-rocker, part comic book artist, how does indigenous New Yorker Jeffrey Lewis do it? With artistic and literary projects all over the map (an illustrated rhyming history of Communism, lectures on the comic book Watchmen, even an illustrated biography of Barack Obama). With his recent album of anarcho-punk covers 12 Crass Songs still making waves, Jeffrey has somehow managed to find the time to record his best album yet.

    ‘Em Are I by Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard is a triumph with his comic/tragic lyrics straight from the heart, and guitar style ranging from finger- picked roots to outer-space swoops.

    Peter Broderick is a musician/composer from Portland currently residing in Copenhagen where he plays violin in the Efterklang live band and whose third album Home has recently been released on the Bella Union label.

    oooh i needed that. what a great show. i haven't smiled that much at a gig since Jonathan Richman last year. i missed all his previous gigs here but i'm reliably informed that was one of his best.

    How many gigs of the year are there going to be this year?! So incredibly good! After last year's show I didn't know how Jeff was going to compete with Broderick but he was on top form tonight, both acts were amazing. The other band (Don't Walk? Don't Stop?) were good too but couldn't hold a candle to the main acts.

    Och, it was alright. Broderick wasn't bad, maybe a bit overly precious and Gruff Rhys does the looping vocal thing much better. I just didn't hear that many tunes.

    Same goes for Lewis, he has two or three songs and the rest is fairly bland, straightforward folk-rock. The Will Oldham 'tribute' was great, though, but, nah, fairly average all in all.

    Peter Broderick was something different to what I was expecting but he was brilliant. That was the best show I've seen in ages!
