“[Preston Spurlock and my] very specific and delightful side-project— we only write songs based on the Gilmore Girls, and the lyrics of said songs are only based on poems by David Kirschenbaum.” —Casey Holford

These songs come from my monthly poem writing projects, with this work spanning June 7, 2005 to May 1, 2007, 694 days and 687 poems, 28 of which referenced Gilmore Girls. I’ll be reading a few of those 28 poems, then Gilmore Boys will perform their songs of still others. Preston and Casey are great musicians, and they’ve done some pretty wonderful work turning these poems into songs, deciding what would be best as choruses and verses, making each piece fun and distinct.

This is all part of Casey’s monthlong of Tuesdays residency at the Sidewalk Café, ending on Jan. 27 with a performance by his band Outlines.

Plus Toby Goodshank

A prolific performer, Moldy Peach Goodshank inhabits the stages of NYC solo and with bands Double Deuce (along with sister Angela Babyskin) and The Tri-Lambs (with Angela and her sister Crystal Babyskin). These projects have “Goodshank” written all over them, with his signature heart-felt pornographic tendencies lending the songs a sense of erotic wonder and innocence. If Anti-Folk has ever known a legend in the making, destined to have his records collected by the troubled teenagers of the future, it is Toby Goodshank.
