Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
With his confident onstage demeanor and smooth velvety voice, Andrew Cohen (aka Mayer Hawthorne), has quickly become one of Stones Throw’s most popular artists. His debut single "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out" b/w "When I Said Goodbye" drew in fans instantly with its catchy hooks and Mayfield inspired falsetto, and his full length A Strange Arrangement had much the same effect. Since his first performance in Chicago at the darkroom, Cohen has done a good job embracing the character of Hawthorne, which initially started out as a tongue-in-cheek way to impress close friends. His last performance at North Coast Music Festival was particularly impressive as he displayed a knack for controlling a large-scale crowd without compromising his laidback MO. At this point in his career it seems like fans are ready for Cohen to take things up a notch, and his performance at Sub-T will be a perfect place for him to do so. (J. Min)
