Mat Kearney @ The Media Club
Collins and I attended Mat Kearney's gig at the Media Club Monday night. It was an A+ show. Such an intimate, unpretentious venue. We ran into several folks, like Dick Hardy from Sony, Terry David Mulligan, Joe Leary from City and some other infamous local bloggers. Pretty young crowd though. According to Dick, I better get over that one. He's older than I, and because of working for Sony, he goes to a million shows a year. We were talking about that and he says that's the market, they're the ones who go to concerts. He's absolutely right. People in their mid to late thirties and beyond, too busy with families I guess. Anyways, I now have to revise my 7 out of 10 review rating. Mat was absolutely fantastic live. He's got great vocal ability and even on the teeny-tiny stage at The Media Club, he and his band did a really great job. We even got to meet him after the show. It made for a fun Monday night. Next time though, I'm moving my car down to the venue. Walking back from Cambie Street to Alberni and Thurlow at 11PM was stupid and my shoes were killer on my feet.
This song is one of his slow ones.
