Last week's show was such a treat. Matt Pryor and Chris Conley
played a show together. Months ago, me and BBQ got word of the two touring together and from then on we were determined to go. BBQ is crazy about the Get Up Kids
(R.I.P.) and I love Saves the Day
. It was like seeing The Get Up Kids and Saves the Day play acoustic sets, but BETTER! Matt just released a new album titled, Confidence Man, which you can check out here
. It's his first solo album. Very folk. I like folk. It's not like the Get Up Kids, or the New Amsterdams. It's just Matt. He played his new stuff, his old stuff, and his very old stuff. Chris played too. It was awesome. The two of them could have just played guitar and everyone would just sing their words back to them. There are a few more dates left for the tour so check out Matt! Support!
