Coleman Lindberg

Coleman Lindberg @ The Dinkytowner (sorry for the crappy cameraphone pic)Sunday night I went to the Seward Cafe for a little benefit concert. A friendster of mine and some folks he knows were playing. One of the folks performing that night was Coleman Lindberg.

Coleman Lindberg is my new favorite person.

He’s, by his own description, “folk/punk/popster.” I like folksy popster, and I’m a big fan of the acoustic strummy stuff. More so than the plugged in rocking. So this right up my alley.

I heard it mentioned that he’s got a myspace site, so I went home, looked it up, and downloaded some of the songs he’s got available there. I have not been able to stop listening to them since Sunday. Lucky for me he played last night, along with Ryan West and Running on Empty, at the Dinkytowner.

So if folk/punk/popster sounds like something you might be interested in, do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Go directly here and here for streaming and downloads. My particular favorites are Crawling Home and Wounded Winter.

He’s got some upcoming show dates around town, too. I highly recommend you go see him so you can see the Flying Fingers of Fury. He doesn’t use a guitar pick when he plays, so he’s all fingers everywhere. And he’s a nice guy.

    Ooh. Thanks. I love acoustic rock and it seems harder to find than it should be. There’s acoustic country, acoustic folk, etc., but the rockers seem to be unable to refrain from plugging in. For instance, I absolutely LOVE Nirvana’s unplugged album, Alice in Chain’s unplugged, Warren Hayne’s “Live at Bonnaroo”, etc. However, I have a hard time finding stuff that’s in that vein that isn’t just a 1 time concert deal. I’m sure there are bands doing this kind of thing fulltime, I’m just too big of an idiot to find it.
