Toledo/Brooklyn-based indie-Americana quintet The Antivillains will headline a show at Mickey Finn’s Pub, 602 Lagrange St., on Nov. 24. New York City rock n’ rollers The Poor Whites and Bowling Green’s experimental Balloon Messenger will open.
Led by the core trio of siblings Ben and Sarah Cohen and percussionist Sam Woldenberg, this will be the first time in two years The Antivillains will perform together in Toledo. The show will start at 10 p.m. with a cover of $5 at the door.
Of the group’s debut feature length album, “So Much For Romance,”Allmusic.com said, “[The Antivillains] have created a set of lovely, ethereal music built around simple harmonies, bittersweet guitar melodies and artfully executed arrangements that conjure up a world of broken hearts and glorious sadness, echoing through the bedrooms of lonesome bohemians late on a mid-winter’s night.”
The Antivillains are contemplating their sophomore album to be recorded in 2013. The group plans to play some of its new music at Mickey Finn’s, according to lead singer/rhythm guitarist Ben Cohen.
