I went out to see A.C. Newman at Johnny Brenda’s Tuesday night. I had a great time. I’m going to write about the man and his new album, Get Guilty, over at my work blog, Blinded by the Hype, today (hopefully.)
It was an amazing show. Regardless of how you feel about his most recent stuff with the New Pornographers, or his solo work, he’s an undeniable showman who must be seen to be believed. I can think of few songwriters whose body of work has been so consistently strong since he came back on the scene with the New Pornographers nearly a decade ago.
If you’re not at SXSW and you’re looking to hear some great music, make sure you get yourself out to see A.C. Newman when he comes to town. You won’t be disappointed.
