Andrew McMahon (formerly of Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate) played a warm-up show Wednesday night for his tour that begins tomorrow, where he is playing some solo dates along with supporting Gavin DeGraw and Matt Nathanson. This summer kick-off took place at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, a tiny 250-cap 21+ venue on the Sunset Strip.
Joining Andrew on stage were former Jack’s Mannequin band members, Mikey Wagner and Jay McMillan, and current touring member Zac Clark. Opening artist was a band named Verre.
The setlist was a mix of old and new, ranging from the Something Corporate days; his most recent release, The Pop Underground; two new songs; and a cover.
