We saw him at the Ark, which is a very small venue in Ann Arbor. For those of you not familiar with Ann Arbor, it is the hometown of the University of Michigan. Despite that (ha), it is still a very cool, hip town. The Ark is a small acoustic music venue that has been around since the mid-sixties. There were probably 200+ people in the audience. So it's very intimate and a great way to see a performer.
Livingston teaches music at the Berklee School of Music in Boston and as a special surprise, he brought along one of his former students as his opening act. His name is Seth Glier and he is very talented young man. Mark that name in your memory, cause I think you are going to hear from him in the near future. His music is a little like Jason Marz with a bit of John Mayer thrown in. I haven't checked for him yet on iTunes (Caity...hint,hint), but I guessing he might be there. I particularily liked his song Walking Katie Home.
Thanks Liv for a great night and the intro to Seth. It was one of those nights I want to hold onto in my memory.
