Andrew McMahon’s Three Pianos tour came to The Ritz in Raleigh, NC this past Friday night. The former frontman of both Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin is now a thriving solo artist with a dedicated following. I grew up being obsessed with Something Corporate so this was pure nostalgic bliss for me. The tour is named after his recently released memoir by the same name, Three Pianos. Andrew performed a medley of his hits along with covering Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin songs as well. The highlight of my evening was getting to hear him play my favorite song, “Watch The Sky”. I’ve always felt that just Andrew and his piano was one of the most beautiful things in the world, and now even more so in person. He spent a good bit of time between songs telling the stories behind them, just a hint at what is documented in his memoir. He’s a very gifted singer and songwriter and also has a way of being genuine and personable, truly captivating the audience.
