The Regency Ballroom
He sang just like how he did on the tracks. This night was an amazing experience. Years from now when this guy makes it even bigger like I know he will, I can say I saw him perform in an intimate venue.
I swear Strawberry Swing took me to a whole different world. The guitarist who soloed in American Wedding gave me goosebumps. I could feel the bass of Novacane in my chest as if it were my own heartbeat. Bad Religion brought tears to my eyes just as his Jimmy Fallon performance did. And when I saw that spotlight on the keyboard, I knew.
All the pieces of lyrics I’ve been blogging were as epic as I’d imagine they’d be. Although tempting, I feared singing along because I entered that room with the intention of not drowning out his voice with mine. My graduation gift, my first concert ever, and I am so blessed it was performed by him.
