Live Music – The Slow Poisoner, with Chris Zobin
June 5 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Driftless Books and Music is excited to host The Slow Poisoner (alias Andrew Goldfarb), a one man surrealistic rock and roll band who hails from San Francisco and has been playing to audiences across America since 1996. With an electric guitar and bass drum he plays catchy, offbeat songs whose lyrical subjects include swamp witches, sinister flowers, strange hungers and giant worms that drive hot rods. Like a late night horror movie host or a creepy camp counselor, the Slow Poisoner invites the audience into a weird world of his own design. He displays paintings to accompany the music and puts on a wild show that has been known to include dancing spiders, severed fingers and a giant head that devours him onstage. He describes his sound as a cross between Johnny Cash and David Bowie – rootsy but weird, like a hoedown on mars. Other key influences include Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, The Cramps and Alice Cooper.
Held at Driftless Books and Music (518 Walnut St., Viroqua).
