The Antivillains

The Antivillains is the combined efforts of songwriter Sarah Cohen longtime members brother Ben Cohen (guitar), Sam Woldenberg (percussion), Lucas Madrazo (bass) joined on stage by artist Graham Parsons (lapsteel). Born in the Rust-Belt city of Toledo Ohio, the band’s songs are populated by quiet dramas that have come and gone and pictures of messy lives somewhere in the middle. The music can be cloudy and dreamy, drawing comparisons to the music of Yo La Tengo or Cat Power with glimmers of the honest and tragic storytelling of Townes Van Zandt or Gillian Welch. As a defined genre, The Antivillains fit into both the stargazy indie-rock genre while other songs lean into a darker, Americana sound.
As a band, they have performed alongside such groups as Lucius, Allison Russell, Birds of Chicago, The Go Rounds, Chris Bathgate, Breathe Owl Breathe and countless others. Past venues and festivals include Earthwork Harvest Gathering, Black Swamp Festival, Hollerfest, Fleetfest, Toledo Folk Festival, All Call and more.
