Matt Jennings @ Acadia Cafe...

Another great evening thanks to one of the brightest stars on the local scene. Matt Jennings added a little more Spanish vive to the set. He was kicking it solo this time and enjoyed the atmosphere of the theater/cafe with some old college friends. Matt brings back that old sublime/311 feel that everybody loved in the early 90's. He also relates himself to a little Jack Johnson/Lifehouse of the more recent years. Mr. Jennings has had a lot more influence outside of those bands and of course his older brother the infamous Mason Jennings. He blends electric with his full band and usually shows all his skills on acoustic when he plays solo. This guy is determined to draw in more local fans, make it on his on, and live up to the dream of making a living playing music. Matt plays guitar, writes lyrics, and is taking advantage of every opportunity he gets. I will be helping him set up some shows around town, and hopefully will help this extremely talented artist make it to the big leagues. I highly recommend his album (Two Become One), only 1000 copies were made..

Mew @ The Fineline Music Cafe..

After seeing the Wolves win in OT my buddy Andy an I raced over to see Mew! Another Danish Band and another band that makes a second stop in less than a month. Steve and Kim were there early to get us a spot. Mew is very smart touring the states for a long stretch of time..Thats how bands get a name and get recognized for their brillaint live performances. Mew defines a great live band, with with well collaborated instrumentels, international style, and image. Their experimental/pshycidelic isn't my kind of music but they certainly make a case for a great style of rock n roll. I'd have to say I liked Mew's 1st show slightly more, probably because Kasabian made the show even better. I was a little further back this time and was surprised that not even half the people from the previous show were there. It sure would be nice to see all these Danish bands in one night, I'll take 3 in a week. Check out Matt Jennings tonight at Arcadia Cafe, or gear up for another Danish band (The Blue Van)@ First Ave this friday opening for the Electric Six. If you like Danish bands check out Yellowfish. Goodnight and Goodluck -The Commish
