Bitchfork presents: Sadie Hawkins Hoedown
@ Aces and Eights
Sadie Hawkins Ho-Down BITCHFORK
Always a smorgasbord of Alternative Americana, Forward-thinking Folk and Counter-Culture-Country with
Hugo Martin: Born in Syracuse, New York, Hugo's lot was cast early on in his life when, as a baby, his father tragically died of a brain tumour. His grieving mother decided to move to London; Hugo has lived and worked there ever since.
After teaching himself guitar in his late teens Hugo played and led a succession of bands, all facing the usual struggles. Along the way he has played guitar for such notables as Wreckless Eric and Robert Coyne. Ultimately though, it is in the last few years that he has found his voice as a writer culminating in his debut solo LP 'Six Before a Seven.'.. Come see what all the fuss is about...
Sadie Hawkins Ho-Down »
A night of Americana Folklore & Country cabaret with live acts, DJs and whatever takes their fancy...
Glory Bound's Hugo Martin
+ DJ Susan Supercharged
All that for a flippin' £5-er?! Get on over here!
BITCHFORK headed by Marianne Hyatt a deep Southern Songstress from Austin Texas
- equal parts Patsy Cline, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison -
+ Chris Chesney ace guitarist who is Tom Baker's doppelgänger
but imbued with the rockstar axe proclivities of Hendrix.
Together they play platonic lovesongs to sexworkers, country reggae odes to schizophrenic madames and protest tunes to natural disasters…
A walking triumph of lost causes & no-longer living legends.
