San Francisco-based musician Andrew Goldfarb has some tricks up his sleeve. Recently, one of those tricks just happened to be some deadly, deadly mint julep, which he fed to the town of Lost Hills while in search of a mysterious gypsy woman. Okay, so Lost Hills may be a fictional town, and perhaps it was only the narrator of Goldfarb’s latest, macabre folk-opera Lost Hills that committed the crime, but the record’s story is so awesome that it’s hard not to mention. Under his nom de plume, The Slow Poisoner, Goldfarb makes up a one-man band that will leave you dancing, shivering and rolling around in groovy stitches all at the same time. Oh, and he’s quite the storyteller, too. Don’t miss this show, and definitely don’t miss the LP, Lost Hills.
The Slow Poisoner plays with Matthew Franz & A Breakthrough in Field Studies, 10 pm Thursday, Nov. 15, at Luckeys; $5.
