Live Review: Andrew Morgan @ Schubas 6/29/06

I’ve seen Andrew Morgan play about five times over the last couple of years and each time it’s a bit different depending on the musicians he brings to accompany him. This night, he was accompanied with drums and tambourine on some songs, but overall it was a more intimate affair. Although he played some songs off of his last album, Misadventures in Radiology, he played many new songs that he’s working on recording for the his next release, A Simple Plan. These songs held up well and sounded consistent with his previous work, so if you love Misadventures... (and if you don’t have it, I would recommend buying it), you’ll probably love his upcoming album as well. Andrew is whispy but pained, sincere and delicate. He’s also a really good person. If you get the chance to see him, you are lucky. This world is a less bleak place when we can all share in something so special as music like this. Unfortunately, this may have been his last Chicago show for a while as he is planning a move to Boston. This is a big loss for the local scene, but we should be thankful we had him this long. -Kirstiecat
