Hm. Yeah. I’m going to be at this gig tonight at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, featuring Lee DeWyze, Five For Fighting, Steven Page, Guster and Train.
The gorgeous hall and fantastic acoustics made Lee DeWyze’s set last night at Mechanics Hall in Worcester MA even sweeter! Sure, Lee doesn’t work the crowd like Train’s Pat Monahan or Steven Page (or tell long-winded stories like the Five for Fighting dude), but his songs were sung beautifully. His keyboard player Lincoln, accompanying Lee on a baby grand piano lent beautiful accompaniment. Really enjoyed last night, even more than the IHeartRadio show. Love me some acoustic Lee!
I also really enjoyed Page–his current band is superior to the ex-Barenaked Ladies old band in every way. BNL were the headliners at last years Acoustic Christmas (with Kris Allen) and I found them, quite frankly, a snooze.
I’ll just say Five for Fighting and Train aren’t my bag and leave it at that.
Also dug hometown boys, Guster, who played an assured set of clever pop. Good stuff.
I wasn’t as close to the front as I would have liked in order to capture the concert on video, but I managed, and I think you all will be pleased with the results. Check it out after the jump.
Set List: “Earth Stood Still”, “Dear Isabelle”, “Beautiful Like You”, “Brooklyn Bridge”, “Sweet Serendipity” and “Hallelujah”.
