Most likely showing up in the same rotation next to songs like “I Dont Want To Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith and “Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls, Edwin McCain’s impassioned 1998 hit “I’ll Be” was literally everywhere … all the time. At the mall – “IIIIIIII’ll beee your crying shouldeeer”. At HEB – “III’ll beeee love’s suiciiahahiide.”

At your cousin’s quince – “I’ll beee better when I’m oldeeherrr.” In your first car, making out with your first crush – “Iahaha’ll beee the greatest, fan of your liiiiiyyfe.” And if you remember 1998 like us, there’s definitely something nostalgic and fun about these sort of cheesy-Dawson’s Creek-singer-songwriter ballads that punctuated the late ’90s.



But McCain isn’t finished. As early as last year, with his banjo-heavy EP Oh Edwin Where Art Thou?, McCain proves that singer-songwriter, well, songs, still deserve rotation on the planet’s playlist.

Sunday, August 13, $36.50-$75, 7pm, The Tobin Center, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org
