Lux Interior may have shuffled off this immoral coilstay sick, Exotic Onebut San Francisco cartoonist turned one-man band Andrew Goldfarb carries on the gospel of snake-oil pitches, psychotronic cinema and swampy three-chord ghoul-rock. Stamping out a beat on a kick drum outfitted with sleigh bells, Goldfarb hustles bottles of his Slow Poisoner Miracle Tonic in between songs from his new CD Magic Casket, where titles such as The Shriek! and Spastic Maggot are true advertising for the contents within. The macabre title cards announcing each song are worth the $5 admission by themselvesthough the Poisoner would like to remind you his Miracle Tonic cures gout and onanism as well as Disinterested Bladder. See if you can beat the FDA to his website, theslowpoisoner.com.
