Comet Crowbar

Band Contact: Comet Crowbar
Saturday, May 16 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Queer anarcha-feminist folk, a solo performance with an acoustic guitar and a loud uncompromising voice. A fantastical new genera of folk, honesty and politics I like to call "zine punk". From Berlin/Boston. The crowbar is a tool for deconstruction of toxic ideologies that seem insurmountable to dismantle, like nails trapped in the walls of institutional borders. If only we had the right tool for the job! That's what this crowbar is for.

Attention: THIS PORCH COMES WITH A ZINE DISTRO!

I will play some fast songs, some slow songs, some finger-picking, some angry, optimistic, lovesick, and most likely some broken strings (playing music is intense)

DAN MASTERSON is a Boston-based performing songwriter who pairs honest, soulful writing with dynamic, powerful vocal performances. Dan’s blend of piano-centric pop and rock evolves with each release, and is readily accessible to fans of Billy Joel, Sara Bareilles, and Dawes.

The piano-pounding pop-rocker drew praise of regional radio jockeys and promoters as he competed in The New England Music Awards’ Last Band Standing in Massachusetts competition — one of just seven acts statewide to make the final round amid a pool of nearly 500 submissions.

Fresh off the release of his acclaimed EP, Atlas, Dan is set to take the porch for an afternoon of good tunes and friendly high-fives.

What is it that touches you about music? Is it when the right chord comes at the right time?
When is the last time you hear someone sing like they really meant it and it was something that had to come out?
When is the last time you really danced, like there was no motion that was wrong, and the music had complete control of you?


  • Come sing and dance with us in the street.
