Danielle Ate the Sandwich, aka Danielle Anderson, plays Best Video Performance Space on Monday, June 15. The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5. Local multimedia group GlumPuppet opens.

Danielle Ate the Sandwich is the stage name of indie-folk, songwriter, Danielle Anderson. Danielle is best known for her homemade and quirky YouTube videos and her recent work, composing the original soundtrack to the HBO documentary film “Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson.” Her music career began modestly at open mic nights in Fort Collins, Colorado, and was unexpectedly jumpstarted by the popularity of her YouTube videos, which showcase her songs and silly personality. The true power of Danielle Ate the Sandwich, however, is her ability to sing stories both grand and small, with sweet vocals and thoughtful, honest lyrics. Danielle Ate the Sandwich has been touring nationally since 2009, cultivating a loyal and dedicated fan base, affectionately referred to as ‘Fanwiches.’

Danielle Ate the Sandwich has shared the stage and collaborated with acts such as Pomplamoose, Leo Kottke, Mumford & Sons & Suzanne Vega. She has released five independent albums, receiving praise from fans of all ages. Her latest release, “The Drawing Back of Curtains” serves as the soundtrack to the HBO documentary film “Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson.” Danielle currently tours the United States year round and is happily based in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The Denver Post says, “Danielle Anderson is a tender singer-songwriter, a brazen humorist, a fearless young woman. Performing as Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Anderson wields a ukulele, a guitar and her own words to tell stories about people.”

Denver’s Westword describes Danielle as, “cripplingly enchanting with lyrics telling the story of a generation coming of age in an age of uncertainty.”

GlumPuppet opens. A Connecticut-based duo (Drosh & Lana Peck), GlumPuppet bills itself as “esoteric modern vaudeville.” Performing member Lana Peck describes the entertainment as “general silliness” suited to adult audiences. The group uses video, music, puppets and spoken word to celebrate such cultural favorites as Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Blade Runner, Star Trek, Dr. Who and more.
