So it was at this place called the Democracy Center. But it’s really just a couple of wood paneled rooms. Suggested donation, no stage, no mics. Mostly college kids. One couch, one chair but most people were either sitting on a couple tables or on the floor. No booze. Had a real old school feel to it.
There were a couple openers. They were pretty good. Then Jason comes on and immediately he gets people to move in closer and to sing along to his song, eyes closed (“say hell yeah if your eyes are closed! “) Then it just gets closer and louder throughout the night to the end where he’s standing (and jumping) on a tiny rickety table and people are all standing within inches, almost touching him, and singing along with real gusto.
After the show we told him that Red Red Moon was a major part of the soundtrack of our honeymoon and he wouldn’t let us leave–we were protesting that we had to get up super early– without playing us a condensed version of that song. As we walked out he started playing another couple their favorite song.
Just awesome. See him if you can.
