Once again the Uptown Theatre in the First Street Community Center is thrilled to present Dan Bern in concert.
His Facebook profile states: “If you must put me in a box, make sure it’s a big box…” You could try to label that big box as “Americana / Roots / Rock / Folk”, but, that would be missing quite a lot still.
Further in his Facebook profile he states: “Dan Bern is best known for his prolific songwriting and electric live persona. He has released eighteen albums and built a loyal following based on prodigious touring and output of songs in all forms.”
The Washington Post says: “Dan Bern strums drop-dead gorgeous melodies like a demon with his tail on fire; and expresses his love for humankind through scabrous, literary, skeptical rhymes full of hyper articulation and the tormented self-knowledge of the really, really smart.”
NPR says: “With his acoustic guitar and a batch of witty and insightful songs, Dan Bern is rapidly becoming the voice of a new generation of folk music.”
When: Saturday, June 25 at 7:30 pm.
Cost: Tickets are $15. Tickets are on sale at CarePro Pharmacy & at the door.
BYOB with the Uptown Theatre cup – which can be re-used if you already have one, or purchased brand new at the Uptown Theatre for only $5.
