Went to see Jack Johnson at the N.E.C. last night with louweasel and my brother. Despite getting completely lost whilst walking there from the E4 car park (I insisted that this would be more fun than getting the shuttle bus), we still managed to get there whilst the first support act was still on - not that we saw any of that though, just hung around outside the arena for a bit. Got seated in time for the second support act, Matt Costa. To be honest I thought the guys tunes were pretty good, but I wasn't a big fan of his singing!
Jack finally got on stage at around 9ish and played a top notch set and the musicians were using some pretty unusual instruments at times - I think a melodica and something that was shaped like a lute (although I don't think it was one). Anyway, it was a good show and I'm thinking that I'll have to add a few JJ songs to the repertoire, not that I'll attempt to sing them though. I just have to figure out his funky sounding hammer on / off technique that he uses too!
