Dan Bern 

When: Fri., Feb. 11, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $13

Given his harmonica-playing folk-rock style and nasal vocal twang, it's no surprise that Dan Bern's suffered a Dylan comparison or two. Bob's certainly a touchstone, as are Mellencamp's heartland rock and Elvis Costello's punchy wit. His music possesses a rousing spirit wedded to a canny, lighthearted manner, whether surveying "Tiger Woods," imagining Yoko as "The Fifth Beatle" or fashioning his own "Alice's Restaurant" with "Osama in Obamaland." He hasn't perhaps attracted the attention he deserves, but the Iowa native's nine studio albums over 13 years have built a sturdy grassroots following. —Chris Parker
