Haiku review – Matt Pond PA at the Loft, 10/26/07

October 26, 2007

Boy, Matt Pond was good
He looked a bit like Jesus
Sure does sing pretty

Jesca Hoop opened
That was a pleasant surprise
Should buy her CD

The crowd was quite slim
With drunk girls dancing up front
Lots of song requests

Matt, ever charming
With much better stage presence
Not shy like before

A rather long set
And they did play New Hampshire
But no “Closer,” boo

And speaking of boo
“Halloween,” shouted the crowd
They finally complied

Less chamber pop now
And more rock, with three guitars
Makes for a fun show

So get their new disc
I downloaded it Thursday
Twenty-one songs, yikes!
