matt barber: good or bad? discuss

okay, so was i at the same matt barber show as karen jackson of the queen’s journal?

the only explanations i have for our diverging views on the show are:
a) she enjoyed the sum 41 show earlier that evening.
or
b) she was on the right side of the grad club where the morons tend to congregate. i know that i’ve had otherwise good shows soured by drunken idiots at the grad club, but i don’t think i’ve ever had that skew my opinion of a performance…

in summary, come to chumptastic before the journal for your entertainment review needs.

    um, although i wasn’t in attendence at the show in question, i’ve seen matt barber about 3 times and each time i was thoroughly bored (the so-called “hotness” notwithstanding). i wouldn’t say he’s terrible by any means, but i would agree that one of his sets is comparable to one looooong, boring song. my two cents? thumbs down to matt barber.

    Although Jill is the superior Barber vis-a-vis vocals and lyrics, Matt’s music gets to me. I’m not sure if it’s the Kingston nostalgia factor or what, but his music makes me feel as comfy-cozy as a pint in the Grad Club did on a cold wintry day. Karen Jackson will remove her foot from her mouth once his new catchy-as-fuck single, “Little Love”, starts making waves.

    Matt Barber is good.
