Friday night live at Transistor: Zapruder Point. Sound by Jon Monteverde.
If we're to believe the conventional wisdom that songs are king, then Zapruder Point delivers incontestably. You can hear traces of Elliott Smith or the Mountain Goats in Zapruder Point's forlorn, literate tunes. But the melancholy is kept in check thanks to a formative diet of late-'80s college radio hooks and a gleeful tendency to chop songs down to their absolute kernels.
For his Transistor set Dan played solo electric, "doing my best Billy Bragg impersonation," primarily focusing on songs from the latest Zapruder Point CD, "Clicks and Whistles."
