Paolo Nutini

Paolo Nutini plays the Paradise on February 3rd and the Paradise webpage lets us know the tickets will be on sale soon. When I first saw Paolo Nutini at the Scottish Arts Music showcase at SXSW 2006 it seemed very low key and he didnt have a track on the CD they gave away as if he was a late addition and I don't think it was advertised who he was and that he was playing. I was struck by the music and took the time to find out who he was (thanks to Vic Galloway). Times have changed, his debut CD, These Streets, was released in the UK and went platinum. He now is regarded as a big deal. Whether he will sell out the 650 capacity Paradise will remain to be seen and I am surprised that he isnt starting smaller. I will certainly be there and so should you.
