Dan Bern has quickly become one of my favorite musicians. I saw him a while back at the (now defunct) Bottom Line and then again tonight at Joe’s Pub (within spitting distance!). He’s been compared to Bob Dylan, although, unlike Dylan, I can understand what he’s saying. His music is simple and catchy, and the lyrics can go from hilarious to poignant in one song.
He played a couple songs tonight that I haven’t been able to find on CDs anywhere - one called “One More Light” and one about 9/11. Hopefully they’ll be on the “new album” ™
