What ruled music in the early-to-mid aughts in music? Was it cheesy rap/pop songs like “I’m Real” by Ja Rule and Jennifer Lopez? Or Eve and Gwen Stefani’s “Let Me Blow Ya Mind”? Maybe infectious pop hits like “Like I love You” by the then-newly-solo Justin Timberlake? Or shit like Nickelback?
Whatever the 2000s were in music, no one could escape the poppy singer-songwriting of acts like Vanessa Carlton, John Mayer, and “Mr A-to-Z” himself, Jazon Mraz. And look, it’s not like we’re bashing Mraz. In fact, it’ll probably be dope to see the singer perform his stripped down acoustic set, since so much music from the era was way over-produced. But for $50? I guess that’ll be up for you to decide.
