I went to see him last night. Up until two months ago I assumed he was a black guy my age. But no, he's a nerdy white boy in his late 20s. I love him. He's a super cheeseball live, but the music was great, and the crowd was half young white kids, half hardcore cholos. It was amazing. I am super tired from being up late so I'm just putting up links to a few of my favorite songs of his for today.
Mayer Hawthorne - Just Ain't Gonna Work Out
Mayer Hawthorne - The Walk
Mayer Hawthorne - Your Easy Lovin' Ain't Pleasin' Nothin'
Mayer Hawthorne - Can't Stop
And of course I've linked to his song The Ills in one of my many music posts. The song where he sounds astoundingly like Curtis Mayfield. I love the guy. Have a great day everyone, and keep cool. I have to make sure to get plenty of rest tonight 'cause tomorrow I'm doing my first weekday trip to Oakland to see how bad the traffic will be, so I can see the new guy more than every other weekend. Please pray traffic is not too bad. I get pretty panicky in traffic.
