Too soon, too soon

I don’t know if Marc was at the first Dan Bern show I attended. I don’t think he was at the most recent Dan Bern show I attended. I do know, however, he will not be at the next Dan Bern show I will attend, or any other Dan Bern show whether I attend them or not. … Continue reading »

An open apology to Dan Bern

Dear Dan Bern. or Bernstein if you prefer, As you stand on the stage at Jammin’ Java on Thursday night you’ll notice something is not quite right. Something about the crowd is a little off-kilter, but you won’t be able to put your finger on it – won’t be able to figure out what, exactly, … Continue reading »

Dan Bern – Still the Messiah

Dean and I saw Dan Bern at Jammin’ Java last night. I think its been a year since the last time I saw him. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve seen him perform, but it is probably somewhere around 30. Last night’s performance was a good solid show — not particularly noteworthy … Continue reading »

Fiestaware, Ted the Cow, Coke and me

So last night I had a Dan Bern dream. I was watching TV on a big screen television that was attached to the wall. I think I was at my parents’ house, but it wasn’t really my parents’ house. A commercial came on the television and in the middle of the screen was a book … Continue reading »

Life on the Road is Hard

Dan Bern says it all for me — (Note, there are several curse words said in the video, so it is not safe for work nor young children) At least Clare and I have not been booed. Yet. We’ve got one more college to visit.

Dan again

Dan Bern made his annual stop in the area last night. This time he played at Jammin’ Java in Vienna — probably my favorite place to see him — it’s intimate and the sound is great. He played a good mix of old and new stuff, and did a lot of chit-chatting in between songs. … Continue reading »

89. Document everything that you do

As mentioned several posts ago, I first heard about Dan Bern on NPR May 23, 1997. Ten years later I have been to close to 30 of his shows and own countless recordings, both studio and bootleg. Of his hundreds of songs it is hard to pick a favorite, but I’m pretty sure I like … Continue reading »

Wild Wednesday

Ok,  it wasn’t so wild. I spent most of the day working, but didn’t get a lot accomplished. Went to a Dan Bern concert last night – well it was actually a Todd Snider concert with a Dan Bern opening act. It was ok. About what I expected. I assumed Dan would open for Todd. … Continue reading »

71. Someday you will understand

I’d never heard of a hidden track until I bought Dan Bern’s Fifty Eggs CD. It was the first CD I’d ever heard about before its release, and the first I bought the day of its release. Fifty Eggs has a hidden track, and it is one of my favorite Dan Bern songs to boot. … Continue reading »
