Live at The Musician in Leicester

Venue,Others_TheMuscian201504The Musician + Magic Teapot presents Johnny Dowd and Mark Lotterman

Well it’s been way too long since Johnny last played in Leicester. Welcome back Mr Dowd. From the very edge of Americana. Dark, doom-laden country. Johnny Cash meets Tom Waits reinvented by Cormac McCarthy. Operating at the Captain Beefheart and swamp ends of alt country, Texas-born maverick Johnny Dowd and his incendiary band are part of the Gothic Americana triumvirate that also includes The Handsome Family and Jim White. Mix that with gallows humour, absurdity, his spiky machine-gun electric guitar and one of the best drummer it’s going to be quite an evening.

Wed 15 Johnny Dowd

£10

plus Mark Lotterman and The Bear

‘From the very edge of Americana’. Dark, doom-laden country. Johnny Cash meets Nick Cave reinvented by Quentin Tarantino. Operating at the Captain Beefheart and Swamp ends of alt.country, Texas-born maverick Johnny Dowd and his incendiary band are part of the Gothic Americana triumvirate that also includes The Handsome Family and Jim White. His predilection for black humour and his absurd and spiky machine-gun electric guitar style have also drawn comparisons with Nick Cave and Tom Waits.
