Mother Mother @ Danforth Music Hall 11/15/2014
Finally have some time to catch up on a few concert reviews. Mother Mother played two shows last weekend at The Danforth Music Hall. I attended the Saturday show with BESTiE and The Beaches.

BESTiE @ Danforth Music Hall

Vancouver’s BESTiE started the night with their summery indie pop tunes. I really wanted to like, as they were great performers but I thought their songs had verses that were way too long. Another repetition of the choruses in each of their songs could have probably helped the audience have something more to grasp onto.

Next up was upcoming girl-group The Beaches. They were a bit heavier, more punk than the band who preceded them but much more infectious. By the end of their set, the audience was screaming for an encore.

Mother Mother was hot off the release of their latest album Very Good Bad Thing. Their around 20 song set consisted of songs from the new record and old tunes including an encore with “Dirty Town” from Touch Up. Frontman Ryan Gouldemond confidently strutted around the stage delivering all the hits as a neon sign of the bands name glowed behind him. Female vocalist Jasmine Parkin had her own star moment as she covered Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”. There’s no doubting that the band has grown since Touch Up and the show did not fail to unite new fans and old.
