John Vanderslice is coming to the Czar Bar this evening

Perhaps you’ll recall Vanderslice’s controversial tune “Bill Gates Must Die.” These days, Vanderslice has moved away from condemning technology brainiacs to focus instead on softer, more personal material. His recent Dagger Beach is a collection of heartbreak ballads dressed up in gentle acoustic sounds. For more details on the show tonight at Czar Bar, go here.

Just for old time’s sake, though, here’s “Bill Gates Must Die.”
