Thanks to my friend Sherri for recording this performance of Elliott Smith’s Baby Britain. I never expected to hear Matt cover my favorite artist, so this was a nice bonus. If asked, I would have picked a different song for Matt to sing, but in the end, I think that this song suits him really well. Bonus Signal in the Sky.
This is from this past Sunday when I went to see Matt in Richmond. The entire set is up on my youtube channel. I’m so not used to being 17 rows away from the stage, so all the traffic between me and my camera was irksome. But it was cool because it just means that many more people were getting to know Matt’s music, and the audience was totally getting into it.
Matt performed a song for his mom at the Orlando show last night… So sweet. And also SWEET! New stuff for us who have not heard it… I do not know the name of this one. I don’t know if it’s a new new song, or just a new to me song. I’m going to call it either Lovers in Broke Down Cars* until I learn otherwise. (Hey, I was right about Rock n Roll Heart so I’m batting 1000 so far.) What do you think it should be called?
*UPDATE: I went straight to the source and found out the name of this song is “Wishing on Dead Stars”. Awesome! But now I’m batting 500.
