Our second time seeing Edwin McCain in just over a month found Tiff and I at the Bear’s Den inside Seneca Niagara Casino. I got these tickets as a delayed birthday present for Tiff, if for no other reason than when one of her favorite artists comes around twice in a short span, we go! What an awesome room to see a show in! Just over 400 seats, great sightlines, great sound, and when you get tickets early enough to get 2nd row, you’re sitting even with the stage. Thankfully for us, since the room was so intimate, this was an acoustic show, as opposed to the plugged-in show we saw in Syracuse a month prior. Just like that show, they opened with Walk With You, but while we got a couple of the same songs after this, the order was much different. Interestingly, for a mostly up-tempo, positive show, someone in the crowd yelled out for White Crosses, which Edwin played, despite being one of the slowest and saddest songs in his catalog. Holy City brought it back up, and it got rollicking, dare I say, with One Thing Left To Do. A couple more standards followed before two encores, the last of which was a fun take on Radio Star. Another quality show from Edwin and his band, which we had excellent seats for!
