What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood
David Bazan, meanwhile, will be known to many as the former leader of the band Pedro the Lion. His debut solo album, 'Curse Your Branches', came out last year and is a brutally personal and honest discussion of Bazan's troubles with alcoholism and religion. The first song's chorus goes "Hard to be a decent human being". That's the chorus! Of the first song! Touring with a full band, Bazan is always an engaging performer – the songs offer a lot more than just stark lyrical insight. Plus, he's a chatty, affable front man, happy to be up there and happy to talk to the fans. You can download a recent(ish) live show of his here, and there are plenty more links to videos, etc. on that page.
David Bazan and The Mynabirds play the Social on Saturday, October 2nd.
Tickets are $12 online, but probably cheaper if you get them from Park Ave CDs.
