Here's a thing for you: David Dondero is kind of a big deal. And not because he used to play in This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb, and also Sunbrain, though he did do those two things. More because he's a pretty great songwriter. The Texas-based musician, working mostly within a folky rock idiom, writes great character pieces -- sort of cinematic songs. He did a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, so do yourself a favor and when the boss takes off to play golf for the rest of the afternoon, click the link and crank that shit. Then check him out tonight at Garfield Artworks in a show put on by frequent CP contributor, Wire reader and turkey sandwich eater Manny Theiner.
