Friday Night

Well, just got home from the Matt Nathanson concert at the Canopy Club.  For those of you who don’t know who Matt Nathanson is, go buy his CD.

When I first got there, I was disappointed that Matt Fish wouldn’t be accompanying him, but instead a full band.  After going to see Howie Day with a band, I wasn’t enthused.  However, I was more than amazed at this concert.  Matt is just an excellent entertainer.  Even if you aren’t a huge fan of his music, I’d still recommend going to see him live.  He’s hilarious and he knows how to entertain a crowd.  Be it jokes, pointing out people in the audience, playing covers, or just having a good time on stage, the man knows what he’s doing. 

Plus, I got to meet him after the show!  I happened to park on the street behind the Canopy Club on Oregon, and since Matt and crew were in a rush to get to Chicago for tomorrow nights show, he didn’t do his normal meet and greet in the lobby.  Instead, he just happened to be behind the Canopy Club next to my car.  Needless I needed to say hi.  There were a few other people back there (maybe 3 or 4), and they were all getting his autograph and having pictures taken.  Well, I didn’t have a camera, and I could care less about autographs.  However, I know that Colleen likes autographs (she has one from John Mayer), plus she wanted to come to the concert but couldn’t because of work.  Now, being the good guy that I am :coolsmile:, asked Matt for his autograph and to make it out to Colleen because she had to work and couldn’t make it to the show.  Matt wrote her a little note, and then signed it.  Now I just need to get it laminated for her.

Oh well, it’s late, I need to go to bed…
