It’s only taken around a quarter century for folk rocker Matt Nathanson to become an overnight sensation, but it looks like his just released tenth album, Sings His Sad Heart, might become his most definitive release. It’s full of potential concert perennials like “Used To Be” and “Mine,” and it comes on the heels of his well-received covers album from earlier this year, Pyromattia, which is also jam packed with bankable retrofits. Let’s hope he does his Def Leppard cover from that latter release, “Stage Fright,” when he arrives March 24 to play the Music Box. It’ll be his first time at the Little Italy venue after having graced around a dozen local stages over the past decade, from Birch Aquarium to HOB, Humphreys, the Belly Up, Del Mar Fairgrounds, Harrah’s, and a 2015 tour-ending set at the Casbah.
