Jackson Brown @ Arlington

In a rare treat, local favorite, Jackson Browne, played the Arlington Theatre in a solo acoustic performance. The well-seasoned performer had a large quiver of acoustic guitars as his backdrop, seemingly haphazardly selecting a particular for each song. Occasionally, he resorted to his little keyboard setup on stage, so you could see his whole body through as key jammed away on the keys.

The show was surprisingly entertaining, especially considering it was just a single musician making all that music. Browne singled David Crosby out of the audience and praised him as a key mentor, enticing him to duo a song or two. That was a special treat!
