JON LANGFORD - solo acoustic career spanning concert with artwork! 1977-2017
This will be a special and intimate art and music show with Chicagoan by way of Wales, Jon Langford. He'll be playing acoustic versions of songs spanning all of his different musical projects, and he'll have original artwork for sale.

The revelatory aspect of Jon's prolific body of work is that he's always treated punk rock as folk music and folk music, when it stays true to its roots, can be awful damn punk.  Woody Guthrie pissed off as many, if not more, people than Johnny Rotten.  Also, country music, REAL country music tells a story and lays bare the truth as honestly and directly as anything the Clash ever did.  For Jon, the line between Acuff-Rose and Strummer-Jones is a direct one.  He also never lets a firm stance or a strong opinion get in the way of a hearty laugh or a ripping good yarn, preferably told in the company of friends with a frothy pint glass within reach. Jon's musical projects include The Mekons, Waco Brothers, Skull Orchard, Pine Valley Cosmonauts and more.

Langford is also a prolific and respected visual artist best known for his striking portraits of country music icons including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley. His paintings appear on bottles and other items for the Dogfish Head Brewery. In 2015, Langford was commissioned by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to paint a series of portraits for its "Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City" exhibition, which opened on March 27, 2015.

ATWOOD'S IS A MIX OF SEATING AND STANDING ROOM. PURCHASING A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE SEATING!
