. . . . maybe the Indy folks just find Blayloc to be as unbelievably
sketchy as everybody else does around here . . . . have you played there
before, or is tonight the first? Let us know how it goes (and whether
the barman opens yr beer with his eyesocket).
> Not as if there aren't 6 or 7 other great gigs tonight, but since no-
> one else has mentioned it here, and since it's the only one early in
> the evening...
> Dan Bryk's Unhappy Hour
> 108 Morris St, Durham, NC 27701
> Drink, eat, listen, drink. PWYC.
> Part of a bi-monthly Friday Night Happy Hour singer-songwriter series
> at Blayloc.
> For all the sturm und drang about bringing downtown Durham back to
> life, it would have been nice for the Indy to have gotten behind this
> FREE series the past month and a half (after Django launched it, that
> is.) There have been some pretty good local songwriters playing I had
> never heard before.
> "Bryk has three assets that help his classic piano-man style find
> purchase in this cynical age: A fatally gorgeous and tactfully
> deployed falsetto, a minutely specific worldview, and a dash of lo-fi
> indie rockery to deflate accusations of retrofetish... a sparkling
> pop palimpsest." -Pitchfork
> "Gemlike acts of idiosyncratic genius... proof of just how
> exaggerated reports of song's demise remain." (A-)
> "Dan Bryk is a nerd, he's a dork, he's a geek, he's a tard. But he's
> also polished, a real craftsman and he's honest, and he brings out
> the dork in all of us. He will make you love him." -Laurie Notaro
