Alex Wagner-Trugman At House Of Blues

Got a few (noisy) videos from Alex Wagner-Trugman's acoustic set at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip. The Voodoo Lounge doesn't lend itself well to videotaped performances, between all the socializing going on and the angles of where the audience can stand. It's like you can either get right up in his face (which no one did), or you can go off to the side, straddle the bar or stand way in the back.

Alex, who was a semifinalist on Idol Season 8, did about three or four songs he didn't do at his Viper Room show, including a cover of The Beatles' "For No One", a cover of the Cure's "Just Like Heaven", and a song he wrote about two days ago, called "Good Luck". I really like the new original song - it's got a lot more dynamics to it, and the guitar adds a lot to the song.

Good Luck:
