Gavin DeGraw

Wednesday, January 5, the Pageant


The 5th ought to be right around the time you've recovered from your case of New Year's Eve flu. Celebrate your newfound health and get your groove on with singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw. DeGraw became the darling of the Manhattan club scene overnight with his fleeting pop melodies and such lyrics as "I'm just too drunk to make my point/But you think your name is 'pass the joint.'" Opening act Michael Tolcher is from the same lightly alternative mold. File this stud under the John Mayer genre of heartthrob songsters who can rock the house.
