Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six
Saturday 12th March – £4 Entry
‘Get Religion Tour 2011’
An incredible band with a very theatrical take on delta stomping blues.
Many believe that the number of love songs in the world far outstrip the number of things with which one can fall in love. That is why Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six are doing their very best to readdress the balance, penning twisted dirt-swing about lust and loathing, served up on an exuberant gobbet of malicious delight.
Stories about grieving lovers, thieving lovers and deceiving lovers seep from their songbook like a putrescent parade of painful parables. It’s strangely beautiful – but not very.
