Bernard Dolan Tonight

Added value for your Buck 65.

If you're going to the Buck 65 show tonight at the Croc, I recommend getting there early to check out slam poet Bernard Dolan, who's opening. The Rhode Island native and friend/business partner of Sage Francis has a new album out called The Failure (eight years in the making), which is a blend of alt-hip-hop, spoken word, and glitchy electronics. Dolan was pretty fiery and intense when he performed here in Philly a couple weeks ago, donning a sorta Evel Knievel outfit and inhabiting his Bombzo the Clown alter-ego along the way. He didn't overstay his welcome, delivering a set only 15 minutes or so, but it left quite an impression. Slam poetry isn't everyone's bag, but if you're into it, you'll very likely dig Dolan's steez. Here's a few photos I shot:
