On Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019 Mother Mother took over the Phoenix Concert Theatre for Indie 88’s Power Up Party with support from Valley, cleopatrick & The Treble.
The Treble came all the way from Winnipeg and got the night started with some upbeat tunes that had the crowd bopping. They mentioned how they had always dreamed of being played on Indie88, and were very thankful to be a part of this show.
Cleopatrick is a two-piece band that are bursting with energy. They have a super dedicated fan base, and they definitely showed up last night. The crowd was rowdy and singing along to every song. Some minor mic stand malfunctions did not stop them from giving a killer set. The rowdiest of fans got fist bumps and set lists at the end of the set.
Valley just came back from tour, so this was their first hometown show in a while. You could feel the excitement from the crowd before they took the stage. They came on stage and immediately brought the energy. They were jumping around and looked like they were having the time of their lives.
Mother Mother hit the stage and played hit after hit. With 7 full length albums, the set list was packed with bangers. The band has such great chemistry on stage and the vocal harmonies are amazing live. They were thankful of indie for giving all bands a chance to have radio play and for not only playing the hits, but also the deepcuts!
