Don McCloskey is an eclectic singer-songwriter and performing artist who infuses the traditional folk idiom with elements of psychedelic rock, electronica, hip-hop, and 80s pop. His idiosyncratic writing style and independently produced albums have appeared in the Oscar Award-winning film, Bowling for Columbine, FX’s television series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Apple TV’s Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, commercials and have garnered 1 million+ streams on Spotify alone. His live performances have developed a cult following that has consistently sold out concerts in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Boston. In addition to headlining venues across the country the songwriter has played in support of Raekwon, Amos Lee, Schooly D, The White Buffalo, G. Love and Special Sauce, and the cast of It’s Always Sunny with their critically acclaimed live tour of The Nightman Cometh. Don returns to Johnny Brenda’s for his first Philly show since the pandemic with an eight-piece band playing songs from his upcoming album, The Chaos and The Beauty, (Feb 2022). The first single from the album, First In Flight, was prominently featured in the season two finale of Mythic Quest and has been streamed over 500k times and counting. McCloskey will be touring extensively throughout 2022 in support of his new album and is happy to be previewing it at his annual Johnny Brenda’s holiday performance.
