There's never, ever, a shortage of solid singer-songwriter shows in the Bay area, and fans of the genre have a hard decision to make on Friday.

That's because Dan Rodriguez, a Detroit-born, Minneapolis-based, bard, is at the quirky Safety Harbor Art & Music Center while Van Plating and Blake Daniels play Hooch and Hive, a West River district venue 20 miles away in Tampa.
All three artists are fresh off new releases—Rodriguez' Quarantine Sessions, Daniels' indie-pop/Americana gem Break the Cycle, and Van Plating's simultaneously shimmery, gritty and vulnerable November album The Way Down—and all three put on a hell of a show. It's a can't lose, no matter which neighborhood you end up in.
