Presenting David Bazan

We’re excited to announce that we will be hosting David Bazan, July 9th, for one of his stops on his living room tour! These are stripped down, intimate performances with no sound system which should make the space a perfect location for this show. Tickets are $20 and we will be offering cups for beer at a donation rate of $8 that evening. Beer will only be served to those of age. For tickets, click here.

TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.

About David Bazan

David Bazan was, for many years, the songwriter and driving force behind the acclaimed indie band Pedro the Lion, building a dedicated following and selling a couple hundred-thousand albums based in large part on his extraordinary melodic sense and erudite, theologically-themed songs. After a decade helming the project, he found himself embroiled in a major personal philosophical and spiritual cataclysm, wrapped in a growing drinking problem. Bazan got to work exorcizing both his demons and angels, ditching the Pedro moniker in favor of his given name and producing two incredible pieces of work in the Fewer Moving Parts EP and the 2009 full-length Curse Your Branches (Barsuk).

Alongside his tremendous line-by-line lyrical deftness, Bazan’s greatest strength has always been his ability – a skill that runs deep in the best writers and other observers of humankind – to distill complex ideas to their essence, to connect us to his ruminations on Big Issues with an economy of language, and to communicate his conclusions (or lack thereof) with concise elegance that never loses its general human resonance.
