Andrew McMahon @ The Paramount 04/13/2013

with No Comments

With the kind of intimate setting Andrew McMahon is able to create, the cozy ambiance rests on top of the crowd like snowfall. Almost like a wool blanket, everyone is insulated and unable to escape, not that anyone would want to escape anyways. It’s mystifying, the effect McMahon has on those lucky enough to hear him in his element. Up there, upon the lit stage, despite a crowd of a few hundred people, it all seems so commonplace to him. That the crowd, the one that has caused everyone to lose whatever personal space they already had as they push towards the stage, are not fans but family. Family that has gathered to hear their dear Andrew play his heart out.

That kind of special familial bond between McMahon and the crowd could be felt throughout the venue. It was heavy and hard to ignore. In between glances at the crowd and the clear twinkle in Andrew’s eyes as he sang to those awaiting to hear their most cherished songs, there was nothing but joy radiating from all members on the stage. With every word sung and every note played, the audience could not get enough. Andrew McMahon did not simply put on a show, he put his heart out there on the stage as he performed for those that love him: his fans, his family.
