Full press release

Lach, founder of the burgeoning Antifolk music and performance scene, will be returning to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013 with his new one-man show Anticdotes. The show will run Wednesday-Sunday nights at 8:30pm (August 1-4, 7-11, 14-18, 21-25) as part of the Heroes at The Hive (15-17 Niddry Street, EH1 1LG). It is free entry, though you may "Pay What You Want" on exit. For those that want to guarantee a seat (recommended!) one may book tickets in advance through edfringe.com. The show is age limited to 18+.

Lach's previous Fringe shows of song, story and comedy resulted not only in rave reviews but a four part weekly series, The Lach Chronicles, premiering on BBC Radio 4 in July. Such artists as Beck, Regina Spektor and Suzanne Vega have sited Lach as a major inspiration and his six albums have influenced a generation.

Anticdotes is Lach's follow-up to the songs and stories that make up The Lach Chronicles. Anticdotes is chock-full of Lach's hilarious true tales of testing acid for the mob, holding up fast food restaurants in Las Vegas, beating Joey Ramone in a moshing contest, being saluted by Kiss and loved by Dylan.
