It was my first concert at the Showbox and I loved it! The venue felt like an old rundown Vegas club, but the setup was such that even though we arrive halfway through the opening act, we still got a great spot towards the front.
Charlote Sometimes (whom I had never heard of) opened and was well....not the best. You know how most people that talk with an accent don't sing with one. She was pretty much the exact opposite of that and it was not doing it for me.
Gavin DeGraw came out shortly after the opening band was done and put on a great show. His is quite the character on stage and feeds off the audience more then a lot of musicians I have seen. I did have a hard time getting past his "remedial" singing face and his tyrannosaurus like arms, but I would still let him sing me to sleep every night.
Check out that sparkly piano. How do I get one of those?
And because we have to have one at every concert....I give you the "Steph and Linds" photo of the night.
