Michaelmas Week 1
A singer of death chants, breakdowns and haunted waltzes – a boiling stew-pot of vaudeville, blues, garage and lies.
A night of theatrical parlour tricks, airs, ditties and tall tales.
Joe Rubini is a Birmingham junkyard poet, armed with a reel-to-reel tape machine, death-defying ancient guitars and a menagerie of electrical oddities. For one night only. On stage. In person. The nation’s favourite vaudeville punk artiste will regale you with songs, stories, story-songs, a spiritualistic musical séance and ghost show. And I mean that most sincerely folks.
‘Like an archive recording of a telephone conversation between Robert Johnson and the Devil’
‘A mysterious troubadour haunting the recesses of the stage.'
