Matchbox Twenty performed a rocking 7-song set to a packed house at the Russian Lady for their Acoustic Cafe performance. Check out the full setlist from their show, as well as some insight into the band’s latest hit-in-the-making, “Our Song.”

To say Matchbox Twenty were well-received at the Acoustic Cafe would be ab it of an understatement.  As Rob Thomas and Kyle Cook took the stage, the entire audience burst into cheers before they played their first note.  Traveling light with just the duo instead of the full band, Rob Thomas was quick to point out, “…Technically we’re just Matchbox Ten right now.”

What they lacked in bandmates, the duo more than made up with amazing acoustic versions of some of their biggest hits, as well as new tunes off their latest album North, and a classic cover song to end the night.

The guys also played one of their newest songs, and Rob Thomas took some time to explain their new single “Our Song.”

“This is one of our favorite ones off the new record. It’s a sad thought– sometimes you have a moment when you write a song, where you have a backstory,” Thomas explained.  “Me and Kyle and Paul wrote this song in Nashville, and the backstory of this is a sad one. A couple that have been together, they’ve been married for, like, 50 or 60 years, and one of them gets Alzheimer’s.  The other one… it’s their job to try and keep them here and help them remember, as long as they can, the time they had together.”
