Although Chris MacCarthy lives in Chicago, he has been down here touring San Diego for the past week.

MacCarthy's music seems to reflect the current snowy weather at his home. It is very mellow and delicate sounding, even when he is almost shouting his words with emotion. It is music that you can easily enjoy on a quiet day. If your day isn't quiet enough, MacCarthy will make up for any chaos over the preceding hours. This is reason enough to buy his CD.

Beside the music, the atmosphere of the venue was very comfortable. The crowd stayed quiet during MacCarthy's songs, but burst into applause after each song.

Just one or two songs into the set, my friend turned to me and whispered "I like his voice!" I agree wholeheartedly.
