[FOLK] + SAT., JAN. 13
Singer-songwriter Mark Dignam, a Pittsburgher by way of Dublin, will celebrate his 50th birthday tonight by giving you a gift at the Funhouse at Mr. Smalls. Dignam lends his distinctive voice to heartfelt/heart-wrenching lyrics. He’s sure to do the awesome “Tallahassee,” about a guy who finally fucked up his relationship for the final time. “I know I’ve really done it now, you say you’re not coming back / My heart’s an origami project that’s been stamped on flat / Now I’m screaming down the highway, trying to find where you have gone / Don’t think I’ve made a mess like this, in oh so very long.” Also, there’s just something amusing about a Dubliner based in Pittsburgh singing a song named after the capital city of Florida. Or maybe that’s just me.
