I’m Dan Mangan. I play Dan Mangan in the band Dan Mangan + Blacksmith. Ask me anything (except my lurker username).
First AMA! Common lurker, but the guilt of never actually getting involved has taken over.
My band Dan Mangan + Blacksmith is celebrating the recent release of our new album CLUB MEDS (Arts & Crafts / City Slang).
Big thanks for all the love the album has gotten from NPR, The Guardian, Q, Uncut, etc. We’re headed across Canada (& Chicago/Minne) supported by Hayden and Astral Swans starting Feb 18. Europe in April, and more USA dates soon, also (incld SXSW).
