It’s been a while since I’ve seen Matt Nathanson. Years, even. And, I can’t believe I’ve survived life without more Matt. So, last Tuesday was much needed.
First up was Ingrid Michaelson. Loved her. I would have enjoyed her more if I wasn’t SO anxious to see Matt, but she’s awesome. Watch for her – I saw her on VH1 this weekend.
Matt came on and the crowd was insane. He has a way with the audience – he totally includes everyone in on the show and he’s a musical genius. Seriously. Genius.
Margi ended up with the flu and Cathy ended up with a headache (no joke – falling on your face will do that to a girl) so it ended up being me and Lynn…and Blake who left early. Lynn and I rocked with Matt 🙂 He put the rock back into our lives. It was wonderful!
Matt and Ingrid performed together:
And, Matt continued on….his covers of Journey songs take me back to the 80s. I love it:
The man knows how to draw me in and each show is so different from every other show he performs. I love that. And, I love that he’s coming to Asheville in April – even if it is opening for Lifehouse.
After the show, he remembered me…how does someone do that? I must have made such an impression several years ago. Either way, we had fun, and I’ll definitely be seeing him in a couple of months. Til then, I have this picture:
