I saw Matt Alber perform last night in Seattle. This song, The End of the World, really moved me--and before I saw him, everyone said to me, "Oh you have to see this video." I didn't look it up on YouTube until this morning. I was glad I got to hear Matt sing this live first (although it's a great video) because in addition to him being about six feet away from me, I heard his story of making the video and approaching his straight Sicilian barber about shooting the video in his barbershop.
The barber asked, "Matt, you're really gonna kiss a man?"
And Matt told him, "Yes. And it's going to be the most romantic kiss you've ever seen."
And Matt was right. See for yourself.
