Andrew Allen – Commodore Ballroom – January 15, 2011
Great to see BC’s own up and coming singer songwriter Andrew Allen again in this opening slot before local icon’s Loverboy. Although the audience wasn’t necessarily there for his set the crowd got into Andrew’s blend of light airy pop/rock. His 35 minute set was infused with witty banter and stories about the background of his songs. Even his cover of Sublime’s “What I Got” got the ‘Andrew Allen’ treatment to become a fun, audience participation exercise…snapping, clapping and singing along was the order of the night. The biggest applause of the night came for his radio/iTunes single “Loving You Tonight” but with a full album coming in the spring I’m sure it won’t be long before every song is greeted with huge applause and Andrew Allen is headlining The Commodore Ballroom.
