Matt Nathanson!

Posted: Category: Life as I Know It 2 Comments

Matt (and the band) killed it at the Showbox last night.  Walking on stage like a champ to Queens “Flash” and then rocking us for a good hour and a half, Matt grabbed a hold of the audience, smacked the hell out of us and rocked our pants off.

Classic Matt. His great music mixed with some classic 80’s tunes  (Take On Me!) and the hilarious “Matt Banter”… it all ended way too soon.

I have already done a Musical Interlude on Nathanson a few months ago and although I really want to do another one for tomorrow, I’m gonna save it for later since I have already written one up.

It was great to hang out with my brother and his woman as well as Allison who got Rosanna’s ticket after an emergency work flight to Chicago (missed you babe!).  Beers at Kells before the show was much needed.

  • Very few musicians “get it” like Matt Nathanson “gets it.” At most concerts, I feel like I’m sitting in the audience watching a performance. At Matt Nathanson shows, I feel like Matt’s sitting on my lap and I’m in the performance. And I just popped wood.

  • I liked at the end, when he told us how it works. “So, we are going to do something, I’m going to say this is our last song even though it’s not and we really want to play more. So, after our “last song” we will say thank you and walk of stage. At this point everyone here will clap, scream and chant for us to come back. “Surprised” we will come back and play two more songs. Why? Because that’s what famous people do I guess…”
