*UPDATE* Second show on the 6th May added due to demand
Micah P Hinson will be performing his debut album from 2004 'Micah P. Hinson and The Gospel of Progress' in its entirety at ATP's very own Pop-up venue located on the ground floor of the former Total Refreshment Centre in Stoke Newington. It's all happening on May 5th, make sure you get in quick as this show will sell out!
'His debut is, in some ways, similar to Nelson's Red-Headed Stranger: Both are concept albums about the painful dissolution of a relationship and the dire self-reckoning that inevitably follows. However, instead of going on a murderous spree across the range, Hinson's protagonist gets lost within himself: "I've been waiting so long up in these trees," he sings on "The Day Texas Sank to the Bottom of the Sea", "trying to hang myself with thoughts of you, thoughts of me." It's a vague metaphor with vaguely country-music wordplay, but it defines these songs as exorcisms of memory, music as a form of healing, or progress.' - Pitchfork
