David Dondero (9/22/10)

This show was all about the songwriting!  David Dondero performed to a small crowd at the Beachland Tavern on Wednesday night, with Darren Hanlon opening.  Darren was quite the impressive sort, with mild (but funny) humor, who's his songs and lyrics carried the performance.  Better than I was expecting, and someone I'd definitely see again.

David performed solo, with only a guitar.  He was more introspective than I was expecting, but I think it worked for him.  His songs were simple and intimate, and he even seemed a bit awkward on stage at times.  I'd agree with the masses that say he's one of the best songwriters out there today.  As good as this was, I'd really like to see him with some supporting musicians.

I was a little bummed to not hear Rothko Chapel, but it wasn't from lack of requests. This is still probably one of my top 5 favorite songs, so I'll share it here:
