Venue: Crane Lane Theatre
Work, porn, school, dole snitches, loan sharks, diabetes, mental health, water meters , bipolar towns and bust ups outside the chip shop are the meat of the Jinx Lennon show.
It explodes with confusion, ideas, melodies, injustice, Styrofoam cups and roads that lead from nowhere. This show will scrape the dead cells off your frazzled brains and uplift you with awkward tunes full of rawness and rage and resuscitation.
Jinx has appeared at this year’s Bucktown Arts Festival Chicago , Antifolk Festival NYC The Electric Picnic , Flatlakes Festival, Latitude Festival UK, Liverpool Irish Festival ,Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival Belfast , this year’s Vantastival and Indiependence and countless venues from Iceland to Cologne have all bore witness to the Jinx Lennon show.
ALL HE WANTS TO IS KEEP US OUT OF THE CIRCLE OF S**T
