Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness | Anaheim

Seeing Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness live is like being transported into space. The dim lights and fog (not to mention the astronaut helmet that popped up throughout the show) go hand in hand with McMahon's dreamy piano ballads that allude to outer space. Playing songs from both of his full-length records, and surprising Jack's Mannequin fans with "Dark Blue," the show was everything I could imagine and more.
