Concert Photos | Matthew E. White at Haw River Ballroom, Saxapahaw, NC

I’m proclaiming Matthew E. White the smartest man in the music business today – like, if there was a musical Mensa, he’d be the grand wizard or however those smarties organize their cult.  You see, he knows that first impression thing is actually real -- so what did he do for Hopscotch this year? He brought in a band of like, 50 people, and knocked that shit out of the park, leaving us music junkies to salivate while listening to his new record, Big Inner, until the next time he brought his ass back to our area.

We finally got to stop drooling, for a second, Saturday night in Saxapahaw, NC – and Mr. White in no way disappointed.  And while his band was whittled down to just a handful, it didn't stop the songs from Big Inner from sounding as grand as they do spinning on record.  We swayed, we clapped, we awkwardly told him how much we love his music at the merch table.  It was a good night – and we have the photos to prove it! Check them out below, and see the full set here.

Now we just have to keep ourselves busy until he releases something new. Sure hope it isn’t long…

  1. I concur that he is like a grand wizard and had a very awkward conversation with him at his lil table.
