Dan Bern Back in Concert Saturday, June 25th.
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.
