So this past weekend I went to see Edwin McCain at Eddie's Attic. It was a Sunday night showing so basically it was a bit thin. Nothing as packed as it is on a Friday or Saturday show.

I was at the 2nd show which is adults only. The language can get a bit bawdier but Edwin is a straight up kinda guy so I didn't expect it to be really any different. The first show usuallygets more of the pop charts stuff. I like the 2nd shows because the artists always do things a bit diffreent. Edwin brought a guitarist and a sax player and that was it. Very good show. And the stores that surrounded the songs are one of the best reasons to go see a show at Eddie's Attic. That and the fact taht you can practically reach out and touch the artist they are so close.

The song list was:

Sign on the Door
Darwin's Children
See off this Mountain
Could Not Ask For More
I'll Be
One things Left to Do
White Crosses
Mele Kalikimaka - The Hawaiian Christmas Song
I've Seen a Love
Shooting Stars
Gramercy Park Hotel
Radio Star

its kinda funny. He was playing a lot of songs that aren't quite happy. And then after "See off this mountain". This guy stands up from a bar stool and starts whooping and hollering and saying "You friggin rock! Yeah!" and such. Turns out that he proposed to his girlfriend while she was there and she said yes. Apparently Edwin was her favorite musician and bringing her to the concert was just such a showing of love and affection that when he popped the question, she said yes. So Edwin decideds to play the closest thing he has to a love song. And then he plays his big hit "I'll be". And then he goes back to playing stuff that rips your heart out like "White Crosses". :-)

Great concert. If you are in Atlanta and you haven't gone to see a show at Eddie's Attic, you are truly missing something. Great music. Great acts and a truly great venue.
