Even though folk is in the name, the line between folk-punk and regular folk music has proven pretty rigid. It's rare that the crusties of Gainesville go on to play singer-songwriter music and unlikely that coffeeshop strummers play basement shows.

David Dondero is the incredibly talented exception to the rule. The former member of This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb went on to become a beloved songwriter in his own right, and any live footage of Dondero and his guitar shows why. 

Dondero last made it our way in 2018, impressing our own Bao Le-Huu with songs that did everything but mince words. He's coming to Stardust Video & Coffee on Thursday following a run through Fest. Dondero will be supported by David Zim. Tickets are criminally cheap at just $7. The show starts at 8 p.m.
