We were a little late for the show so we missed fellow Nashvillian Erin McCarley but caught most of The Mowgli’s and all of Matt’s sets.
I have been absolutely addicted to The Mowgli’s “Great Divide” since my Songza app played it on the Alt-Pop playlist and recently downloaded a couple of their albums. All in all, I’ve really enjoyed it and found favorites with “Emily” and “San Francisco.” I was really stoked to catch them live! I knew the band was pretty large but it still took me by surprise seeing all those talented musicians on one stage (they looked like they were having a blast!). I was overall pretty impressed with their sound live and loved the high energy the group kept throughout the show.
Next up was Matt Nathanson. I hadn’t heard much of his music but have always had a soft spot for “Come On Get Higher” so I had to stick it out until he played that one (which would, of course, be at the very end). I wasn’t crazy impressed with Matt, but I did find a few songs I loved enough to purchase an album. “Mission Bells” is one of them. He also grinds with his guitar on stage a little too often! Still, I’m happy I got to check him out live. And it was free. 🙂
