The Dan Ryan and Your Friend at The Echoplex - 8.8.16

words + photos by Joe Cortez

Austin, Texas's The Dan Ryan stopped by LA's Echoplex on Monday, August 8 to deliver a seriously psychedelic dose of heartfelt folk in support of the band's self-titled debut album, available now via Cosmic Dreamer Music.

The solo project of singer-songwriter Nathan Dixey, The Dan Ryan is a slipstream trip down memory and dreamscapes. The relaxed, atmospheric tone that permeates the debut belies the more raw and varied nature of the band's set at The Echoplex. Although the members of The Dan Ryan played earlier in the night as part of Taryn Miller's band Your Friend, I was surprised to find the same members create a very different sound and mood as The Dan Ryan.

Check out my photos from the night, also featuring Your Friend, below. For more, be sure to like The Dan Ryan on Facebook and check out The Dan Ryan on Bandcamp.
