he's an incredible musician who puts all of his heart into his live shows. if you can dig his music recorded, even just a little, i suggest you go see the tour. and if you haven't listened to his music, check out the songs Walls, Brat Pack, Do You Feel?, Hills and Valleys, and Never Knew. and also, this live video of the song he usually ends his sets with (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xqeKzEiLEY). the energy you can feel during it is amazing.
/i'm obviously a very big fan of trs so this was a really biased answer.
Coming from another huge TRS fan, I have to somewhat disagree with your song choice for a new listener. I'd go more with Cross My Heart, TV Family, Around The Clock, Goodbye Waves and Driveways, You Gotta Believe and of course pretty much anything from Do You Feel. I almost despise Brat Pack haha.
Edit: oh but I HIGHLY agree the end is the best, most intense moment. I literally look forward to it each show. You get chills.
