Vancouver-based folk-rock singer Dan Mangan writes songs with a high degree of intimacy, but he's no shrinking bedroom performer: His intricately arranged studio recordings are fleshed out with as many as 20 musicians lending a hand. One listen to an anthemic gem like "Road Regrets," though, and it's easy to tell how effectively this guy's work translates to a big stage. Mangan's new album is titled Nice, Nice, Very Nice.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, Mangan performs here as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
