John MayerWhat to say about John Mayer, who happens to be headed into the Saratoga Performing Arts Center at 7pm on Sunday?

I wrack my brain.

But I realize that I simply can’t do any better than Amanda Petrusich did in The New York Times on Friday:

“The singer and songwriter Mr. Mayer is famous for various things – publicly wooing starlets, posting witty barbs on his Twitter account, saying ridiculous statements during interviews, making semi-grotesque faces while playing guitar – all of which are ultimately more intriguing than his limp, soft-rock ballads.”

Opening act at SPAC is Train – featuring Saratoga Springs native Scott Underwood behind the drums. (Related story: Scott Underwood, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?)

Tix are $36-$69.50.
