Nicholas Megalis 

Friday, June 13, at the Agora Ballroom.


Age ain't nothing but a number, but listening to Nicholas Megalis, it's pretty amazing that this Cleveland kid is only 19. Unlike other post-tween artists, Megalis isn't some watered-down, radio-friendly singer with lame lyrics and mild melodies. Whether playing quiet, intense piano tunes like Damien Rice or twangy guitar blues like Tom Waits, Megalis makes music that's quirky enough to be interesting, but not off-putting. He trades his usual one-guy-does-it-all gig for a full band onstage, fleshing out the already dynamic songs. Megalis skipped college for a career in music. With talent, enthusiasm, and good looks backing him up, it seems like a smart move.
