Last night at the Belly Up Tavern saw a favorite from the 90's, power pop rock star Matthew Sweet. Ive seen him several times since he burst on the scene with his Girlfriend album but outside of the first show this was easily the most memorable. It was like having one of your favorites offer to play your backyard, you invite all your friends and none of them show up. The smallest crowd Ive ever seen at a concert, Id guess there were about 200 attendees. Kinda felt bad for him but those of us who came loved every second as he ripped through a great set list that included everything i could have hoped for.
I'm jealous. I wish he'd swing by Montreal sometime.
