The Slow Poisoner - San Francisco One Man Surrealistic Rock and Roll Band!
Andrew Goldfarb is Bizarro's true Renaissance man. He does it all: writes, draws, paints, and performs as a one man band. He wrote one of the most unapologetically Bizarro novels - "Ballad of the Slow Poisoner" - BEFORE Bizarro was even defined as a genre, writes and draws a series of Bizarro comic books, is on a singular crusade to revive the art of black velvet painting, AND tours incessantly as the one man band "The Slow Poisoner."
To see the Slow Poisoner in concert is to be amazed and enthralled. He presents a carefully curated program of original tunes and well-chosen covers complete with costumes, props and set pieces. And he does this all by himself! One moment he might be wearing a giant mushroom hat much bigger than his head, and another he might be performing from inside the mouth of a hideous monster with wicked looking teeth. One of my personal favorite Slow Poisoner songs is "In the Gloom," sung with only the sound of a heavy chain being dropped as accompaniment. The use of silence in between the plaintive lyrics and bursts of harsh metallic clanking is masterful.
music starts at 10pm
