It was crowded last night for Lach’s return to the Sidewalk Cafe here in the midst of the 20th year of AntiFolk in the Sidewalk’s back room.

Lach invited a variety of acts – maybe 25 – to open for him before he played a two-hour set to a rhapsodic room. Rhapsodic and packed. I lost my seat several times due to the size of my bladder. It was a night of familiar faces, people who hadn’t been around town for some time, but who were willing to trek out to see the once-a-year day event of Lach! At the Sidewalk! In New York City!

It was a good Lach show. It appears his time performing for Fringe Festival fans has made him a more natural storyteller, able to transition from anecdote to anecdote with amazing ease. Personal, detailed, this was a Lach show for the ages.

And it’ll have to be. Who knows when the man will again return to our shores?
