Beloved Folly Beach band Dangermuffin played their first international show last week, opening up for the Avett Brothers at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival in New Brunswick, Canada, and this Sat. Sept. 21, they’ll return to the Holy City to play a show at the Pour House. While the Americana trio is stoked to return to Charleston, they are still in awe of playing a sold-out show in front of 4,000 people and opening for a band they saw in a small tent in ’06 at Bonnaroo.
Dan Lotti, singer, songwriter, and Dangermuffin guitarist remembers when he and guitarist Mike Sivilli played acoustic sets at Meritage downtown. “We’re proud of the Charleston music scene ,and it has allowed us the freedom to take the steps that we’ve taken. Every year seems to get better and better,” Lotti says. Each ticket purchase earns concert-goers a free download of Dangermuffin’s 2012 album, Olly Oxen Free. “We’re proud of our record. It was No. 1 for 18 weeks on the Home Grown Music Network chart,” Lotti says.
Dangermuffin is getting ideas together for their new album, and they may even play a little something new for the Pour House crowd. They’ve also participated in several performances for Sirius XM radio. “We want people to hear our music, and we want to give back to our fans,” Lotti says. The band has a tour scheduled for the fall, and they plan to play few international dates as well.
Tickets for the 9 p.m. Pour House show are $10/adv., $12/door. Old You will join them on the bill.
