Matt Nathanson: WXPN Free At Noon 07-13-07

Sweet Oblivion fave Matt Nathanson played WXPN's free show on Friday. He rocked the crowd with a set comprised of new songs from his forthcoming release, Some Mad Hope. He had to temper his usually blue stage banter for the sake of being on the radio, but he was still his hilarious self in between tunes. After the main set, he came back out off-air to play an encore. He told us that his drummer had only two days of rehearsals, so he needed to do the encore by himself. He played "Suspended" without his guitar plugged in and without a mic from the edge of the stage, encouraging the crowd sing along with him. He harmonized off the audience, who knew every word to the song, as artist and fans brought the song to a close together. It was a very cool moment.

The new songs sounded fantastic, and I hope this record really helps his career take off to the next level. So go preorder Some Mad Hope now while you wait for the show to download.

Thanks so much for the posting of the WXPN show. His live performances are incredible, and even outshine his albums.
