CSTA Songwriter Series Presents: David Dondero with Lone Wolf
November 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
This is my newest album and it’s called “The Filter Bubble Blues” because a “Filter Bubble” is:
“a situation in which an internet user encounters only information and opinions that conform to and reinforce their own beliefs, caused by algorithms that personalize an individual’s online experience.
“the personalization of the web could gradually isolate individual users into their own filter bubbles” It’s been giving me “the filter bubble blues”
It’s been happening and evolving all around me over the past decade or so. I know i’ve been swept up in it as well. Being caught up in my own echo chamber. This album was written during the dark days of the terrible trump years. It’s my reaction and reflection of what i saw during that time. It’s not a very fun album but i tried to find the light and a little bit of humor. It was nearly impossible.
The album was released just before the pandemic started. I was actually beginning a lengthy tour for it in mid March of 2020 when it all got shut down.
It was recorded/engineered with my good friend Dan Potthast of MU330 down in Santa Cruz, CA 2018- 2019. We recorded in the living room of he Shannon Toombs apartment on Franklin St. I actually lived there for awhile during the pandemic. Shannon sang backups and so did Hod Hulphers. Dave Mihaly played marimba and percussion. Dan played piano and bass. Some guitar and noise samples. I played some drums as well but mostly guitar and voice.
