Jason Mraz is up there with Jack Johnson and Gavin DeGraw in the college-bro, “Should I be embarrassed I like this guy?” category, but, hey, dude’s got some good tunes. Most notably, the ubiquitous 2008 hit “I’m Yours” and his breakout “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry).” For his current tour, in support of his July-released Yes!, Mraz has a special treat for fans in the New York area: he’s playing shows in all five boroughs, a fete that’s only been accomplished by two previous artists. The city-spanning acoustic performances will showcase all-girl band Raining Jane, who were featured on Mraz’s latest album.
