Dear music fans:
Next Tuesday, August 7, 2018 Jane's Great Dane will be performing at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, California (2020 Addison Street, Berkeley, CA) backing up the great troubadour Dan Bern. Quoting the Washington Post: "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." Come be blown away by Dan's awesome music, as so many others have. Check him out at: www.DanBern.com.
The next night, Wednesday, August 8, 2018, we will perform at the legendary Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles (8901 West Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood). We are super excited: as long as there has been a Los Angeles rock scene, there has been the Whisky A Go-Go, which has played host to some of rock 'n' roll's most important bands including the Doors, Janis Joplin, Van Halen and Led Zeppelin. I mean COME ON, GET REAL! Please note that our set is a 30 minute set starting at 7 p.m. Please be prompt, as we only have that limited time...
Then, on Thursday, August 9, 2018, we will be backing up Dan Bern again at the Bootleg Theatre (2220 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles). You don't always get second chances in this life. But to see Jane's Great Dane backing up Dan Bern - you get a second chance! Dan is prolific and awesome to the core, with 25 albums and a phenomenal musical range exceeded by very few. Here are links to a few of his bazillion songs, which should keep you exploring his music for years:
