Singer-song writer Jordan Hull from Nashville started the night off with some slow folk songs, kind of resembling a young Josh Ritter. But don't let this baby-face fool you, he later breaks out the banjo and rocks out during the Toy Soldiers set.
Thom McCarthy, the definition of a nervous nelly, pleasantly surprised the crowd with his soulful yet folkish ballads despite his admitted nerves. He very well stole the show with his intriguing lyrics and passionate showmanship. Check out a quick video from Saturday night.
Overall it was a great show and it made me even more excited for their upcoming album, hopefully being released sometime in the fall. But fear not, I'll get to see them again (with Thom McCarthy!!) at the end of July. It's going to be a great summer of music!
