Staff Pick: Baribeau Brings it Back

By Hana Frenette

Paul Baribeau is making his return to Pensacola. He’s played here dozens of times over the years and people can’t seem to get enough of his folk punk songs and endearingly honest lyrics.

Baribeau released his last solo album in March of 2010 on No Idea Records, right before his show here with Kimya Dawson. He’s been touring the Southeast for the past month, squeezing in shows at small venues and garages alike.

He often updates his website with homemade show flyers, anecdotes about his father buying lots of donuts and pictures of hotels in National State Parks he’d like to stay in. There are also some amazing gifs, involving Anne Hathaway, New Year’s resolutions and Minnie Mouse sweatshirts.

He’s just a straightforward, open guy who likes a good multi-colored duffle bag.

Stop by Sluggo’s on the 24 to seem him along with guests Jason Anderson and local band Dull Actors. It’s going to be a party.

WHAT: Paul Baribeau with Jason Anderson and Dull Actors
