Five singer-songwriters are definitely better than just one singer-songwriter, especially when they’re pitted against each other in a Songwriter Deathmatch. Well, kinda. Dave Keener has assembled five fellow musicians to play short and sweet sets for this recurring event, and they touch on everything musically from pop to rock to Americana, all with original work. Instead of one long coffeehouse style ramble, you get focused, direct, heart-in-hand lyrics that deliver the best of the singer-songwriter craft while leaving out a lot of the unnecessary extras. It’s at Freddy’s, it’s this Friday, it’s free, and they have tater tots!
