Who? Dan Mangan
What? Vancouver’s unsung hero of folk-rock.
Where? The Jericho Tavern, tickets cost £7.
When? Friday 04 May 2012, doors 8pm.
Why? The former Polaris Music Prize nominee released his second LP, Oh Fortune, last year on the City Slang label to a slew of postive reviews. Dan’s husky vocals, knack for memorable melodies and grandioise arrangements gave Oh Fortune an admirable tenacity and immediacy, but scratch away at the surface and there was a pit of dark lyricism to be excavated.
