We’d seen Toby Lightman twice in two days open up for Gavin Degraw back in August, and now we got to see her headline her own show. But kicking things off was a single kid and his acoustic guitar, Eric Hutchinson. Eric was quite entertaining, running through a bunch of his own originals, plus a cover or two (or more, considering the “medley” he played. Towards the end of his set, he gave us a “preview” of the rest of the songs on his CD, condensing 7 songs into roughly 45 seconds. Made us buy it! He was having a good time up on stage, and the crowd, who started to trickle in once he started, seemed to be having just as good of a time watching him. So he finished up, and Toby and her band came on. She ran through most of her album, plus a couple of cover tunes herself. As it turns out, this was the last night of the tour, and as such, we got an encore, something that she supposedly hadn’t been doing. Obviously, being in Geneseo, it was a predominantly female audience, but there were more than a handful of guys there also. Tiff managed to snag a setlist, and grab an autograph to cap off the evening.
