w/ Asher Brown
8pm | $5
Darrin Bradbury is an American satirist. A left-of-center folk singer. With a batch of songs that celebrate the humor and heartbreak of everyday American life, he’s spent the past decade traveling his way across the country, making pit stops at dive bars, listening rooms, punk houses, and world-class theaters along the way. The people he’s met during his cross-country trips — the seedy characters filling America’s underbelly, the corporate elite working out of corner offices, the blue-collar everymen who refill our coffee cups and ring up our purchases at Office Depot — all find their way into his music, which follows the left-of-center tradition of John Prine, Shell Silverstein and Steve Goodman.
Asher Brown is a transgender singer/songwriter currently based out of Iowa City, IA. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013 with an expensive degree in songwriting he'll never pay off. Afterwards, he moved to Chicago where he realized he was trans and had a quarter life crisis.
Now, moving back to his hometown roots and transitioning openly, Asher is back with a new name, a new sound, and a new lease on life. Asher uses his unique fingerstyle guitar playing and newly found rich and gentle voice to write about the personal and political experiences of living as an out trans person.
