“Sometimes when I’m falling in my dreams I can feel you falling next to me. I guess we’re going everywhere together…”
This guy’s music lyrics have been a part of us since we started dating in high school. Tim and I rarely miss an opportunity to see Andrew McMahon when he’s in St. Louis, whether he’s headlining a show or opening for another band, and we’ve traveled to Chicago to see him perform at Lincoln Hall too (and even had the opportunity to meet him that time around!). We have followed Andrew since his Something Corporate days, to Jack’s Mannequin to where he is today, and his lyrics have truly been a piece of our relationship from when we began dating (Tim first heard of him during his days working at Hollister when Andrew was a punk rock band 😉 ). He is an amazing performer, and I feel so moved every time that we see him live. He truly sings and performs with so much emotion, and it’s just very apparent that he means the words that he sings. That man has been through a lot, and it’s inspiring to see people, even after facing life’s challenges that come along the way, live their dreams. Last night’s show at the Ready Room was amazing. Music is something that we both love, and live music really has a way of moving you. I can’t stop listening to his newest album, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, and I’m already excited to see what he’s got for us next.
“There’s only two mistakes that I have made; it’s running from the people who could love me best and trying to fix a world that I can’t change.” – All Our Lives, Andrew McMahon
