Dylan Patrick Ward and the Loveable Losers with OH DAD at Stage 33 Live
BELLOWS FALLS — Dylan Patrick Ward is a folk misfit for our absurd times. Equal parts compassionate and irreverent, his songs use catchy melodies and blunt, storytelling lyricism to weave tales of outcasts, oddballs, and people on the brink. His blend of folk-balladry and raucous indie-rock have earned him comparisons to the Mountain Goats, John Prine, Paul Baribeau, and Loudon Wainwright. Since arriving on the scene he’s become increasingly respected in the worlds of both folk and indie music, sharing the stage with renowned acts like Bill Callahan, Peter Mulvey, Jeffrey Lewis, Guy Davis, Michael Jumpshot Touchdown Pass, and others. Dylan has lately teamed up with multi-instrumentalists Nate Goyette and Johnny Gifford to form “Dylan Patrick Ward and the Loveable Losers”. Nate and Johnny trade off between drums, bass, keys, saxophone, and trombone, taking Dylan’s sweet and sardonic songs to the next level, creating a mess of sonic delights. Dylan has two albums slated for release in 2024. One with the Loveable Losers called The Porch Collapses, produced by Johnny Gifford, and a solo-effort called Ne’er-Do-Wells, produced by Ian Galipeau.
OH DAD, the alias of a sad boi from Springfield, will open. He makes the type of music for rainy days and riding your moped into the sunset. A little punk, a little folk — but not both.
Tickets for this Sunday, October 1, 2023, 3:00 PM matinee are $15 suggested, or $10 accepted, or $20 for a halo… 100% goes to the performers. Limited seating; the event will be recorded and filmed. Stage 33 Live is at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont.
Extra points for you if you noticed that the venue typo’d the word “Loveable” on the poster art.
