Many months ago, I've declared my appreciation for one Jon McLaughlin. So this past Monday, my friends Justin, Larissa and I went to the Bowery Ballroom to his latest concert. Despite playing some of his "bigger" hits from his debut album, Jon played many samples of his sophomore disc, titled "OK Now". To my surprise, most of the newer songs were inspired by 80s pop.
On our way out of the small venue, I passed Jon and got the chance to meet the guy. The encounter was brief, but he does seem to be a genuinely nice guy and let me take a picture with him. The other thing I got from meeting him? He's like 5'6. Short fella.
