Radin started things off with a stripped down version of his band, showing off his mellow vocals and powerful songwriting abilities.
Nathanson essay writing took to the stage with a big grin on his face, as the sold-out auditorium roared. He is quite the character, filling the spaces between songs with comedic banter about funny things that his daughter says, and stories from recording the new album.
Nathanson stuck to playing mainly newer songs, but threw in a few older ones and reminisced about playing at the Gargoyle in St. Louis many years ago. Also thrown in were a couple of cover tunes, including Prince's "Little Red Corvette" and David Bowie's "Under Pressure."
