I realize I’ve been posting a ridiculous amount of John Mayer stuff recently, but the guy has been doing all of these sweet secret shows around Los Angeles and I just can’t help myself.
Last night, him and the Trio plus a dude on the keys rocked the hell out of the Troubadour. They played a single acoustic song and everything else was rock and blues songs, many of which were covers. It was seriously awesome. Who knew that earplugs would have been handy at a John Mayer show…I mean wow, he really rocked it.
Setlist looked something like this (mind you, i dont actually know the titles or original writers of many songs):
Wait Until Tomorrow (Hendrix)
Come When I Call
Never Said Never Again (written and sung by keyboardist, Matt)
Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone (Bill Withers)
Turn The Lights Down Low (new bluesy song)
Perfectly Lonely (new song)
Whatcha Gonna Do About It (new bluesy song)
Who Says (new acoustic song)
California Dreaming (The Mommas and The Poppas)
Who Did You Think I Was
Unfortunately security was super tight about recording and actually took my Flip and deleted the memory. So here is one of his tunes from the Try! album and a couple originals of the songs he covered last night. Enjoy your week!
