I have been patiently hoping, since I first came across him in April, that I would be lucky enough to see a Dan Mangan concert without having to make a visit to Canada. Not that I would mind going to Canada, but for a concert that is a little extreme. So often these awesome Canadian bands bounce around that huge northern country for years, building up a loyal fan base, and then when they are ready to tour the U.S. they are too popular for me to afford a ticket or they completely skip over Boston. (I really wish The Arkells, The Zolas, and Good Lovelies came here). But lucky for me, I have secured a ticket for tonight's concert in advance (I never do that) and I will be seeing Dan Mangan who is opening for the Wooden Birds at Great Scott. I know almost nothing about The Wooden Birds except that Matt Pond of Matt Pond PA is a part of the band, which makes tonight like a dream come true.
