Matt Jones @ Union Hall

Last night I went to see one of my favorite singer-songwriters who you regular readers are probably familiar with by now because I'm totally obsessed with his music: Matt Jones. This time he had violinist and cellist with him, and that was quite a treat. The cello is a very prevalent instrument on his album, so it made the music sound so much richer live. He played a relatively short set sadly, but it was still totally mesmerizing. I just didn't want it to end.

I talked to him briefly after the show (man is he tall when you're standing right next to him!), and even though his most recent album, "The Black Path," was just released, he apparently already has a whole new album's worth of material demoed and ready to be recorded. I'll be keeping an eye out for that one next year for sure.

And for those of you who missed last night's performance, he's playing a FREE show tonight at the legendary Sidewalk Cafe, and he'll be able to play a longer set. He goes on at 10pm. Go see him now before he gets famous like previous sidewalk cafe alums Beck, Regina Spektor and Kimya Dawson. Then you can brag to all your friends about how you saw him when he was just starting out.

purchase "The Black Path" on iTunes
