Second Dan been called Oasis without the posturing. Back in 2010, they had released a pretty good album, Angeline, with one of my favorite songs for that year, Today, and a couple of creative videos. Then they took a break, got back together for a bit in 2012 and have been on hiatus since then.
There is, of course, a story behind that. Their front man, Dan Rosen, is from Australia, and he and the rest of the band were based in New York City. A few years ago, Dan moved back to Australia to become the CEO of the Australian Recording Industry Association, a position he continues to hold.
So take advantage of this rare appearance of Second Dan. Get yourself down to the Lower East Side tonight for a bracing dose of rock and power pop.
Second Dan, Rockwood Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 10pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the band is highly encouraged)
