Everyman Theatre, Street Cafe, Hope Street, Liverpool, 19 October, 9pm
Anti-commercial, irrepressible punk poet, hip-hop influenced, folk-singer Jinx Lennon (Dundalk, Co. Louth) returns to the Liverpool Irish Festival 3 years after his gig with Rarely Seen Above Ground (RSAG), 2 albums down and a slew of accolades later.
As Bernard O’Rourke (headstuff.org) states: “At heart, his music is a raw unpolished yell against the small-scale mundanity of day-to-day working class life in a largish Irish town. Far from attempting to elevate the intimacy of his subject matter to a kind of poetic universality, Lennon positively wallows in the unimpressive nature of the reality he depicts in his songs”.
