The Live from the Underground (LFTU) performance series continues on Thursday, January 27th with Singer-Songwriter Dylan Patrick Ward. The show starts at 6pm and will be live-streamed digitally on Bandcamp, to be followed by an interview with LFTU co-host Jamie Gage.
Dylan Patrick Ward has never drank 100 beers in one day, but sometimes he feels like a snowman made of slush from the side of the road, slowly melting as winter turns to spring, so his songs are autobiographical...in a way.
After years spent trying his hand at acting, stand-up, sketch comedy, film making, fiction writing and cartooning, and many failed attempts at starting bands, Dylan found his niche in the age-old art of sitting alone with a guitar and writing songs.
Equal parts humor and heart, Dylan's highly specific, melodic tales of lovable losers draw from a wide range of influences, chief among them John Prine, the Mountain Goats, Nikolai Gogol and The Simpsons.
He comes from a part of Vermont he affectionately refers to as “the dirty south”, where Dickensian odd-balls are more common than farmers and ski bums. He fits in...about as well as he would anywhere I guess.
Thursday's performance will be a ticketed event
with 50% of the proceeds going to the artist
and 10% to Chandler Center for the Arts.
