Golightly still beats for Huey

Matt Golightly.


At first glance, Matt Golightly comes off like an average goofy white guy. Nice shirt, jeans, bouncy gate, navigating through his material like he’s walking across a moon bounce. There’s not one thing about him that comes across as threatening or devious in any way — but then he opens his mouth and says something so inappropriate you’re head actually crinkles in disbelief. Don’t get me wrong, nothing Matt says is overtly evil or even remotely sick, it’s just that he’s so completely affable it catches you off guard when you realize he’s also brilliantly funny.

His act centers on the two things he knows best, anger at minor injustices and ’80s nostalgia. This probably explains his loyal, unflinching love of Huey Lewis and the News — a deep, almost creepy love that propelled him to reach his career milestone of opening for the band very recently.

 

What instrument is Huey Lewis best known for playing?

Harmonica! He’s like the best in the world too, behind that Blues Traveler guy.

 

John Popper.

He has a name?

 

What is Huey Lewis’s real name?

Jesus H. Christ. The H is for Huey.

 

Which 1980s movie features Huey Lewis’ music heavily on the soundtrack?

Back to the Future. This is easy!

 

OK then, which song gave Michael J. Fox Parkinson’s?

“Back in Time.”

 

Name the song that features these lyrics: “Trust I seek and I find in you, every day for us, something new, open mind for a different view.”

“Now Here’s You,” off their debut album.

 

No. It’s Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.”

Why’s Metallica stealing lyrics from Huey Lewis and the News?! •

Matt Golightly started in San Antonio as an opener, but returns for his headlining debut this week at the Rivercenter Comedy Club at 8:30 p.m. Wed-Sun with two late shows at 10:30 p.m. on Fri and Sat. 849 E Commerce, (210) 229-1420.
