MURs Rules the World

Assuming everyone likes sex and jokes and video games, Murs has an everyman appeal that's hard to deny. Couple that with a self-effacing, totally energetic stage presence, and you've got one of the best shows I saw this week. It took a while and a couple of utterly mediocre mixtape rappers for him to reach the stage, but when he did, it was worth the wait. Murs is such a generous performer, manifested literally through his vocal support of people who download his music, and he complimented his song choices with banter like, "MySpace fucked up my life. All these girls promise to give you some pussy, and then all they want to do is watch movies." The highlight of his crowd-altering set was "Bad Man!": sexual, frustrated, and hilarious, all at the same time.
