The warm-up act was Whale Tooth "all the way from Toronto" (hhhmm). They did make up for that comment by encouraging the audience to vote for local talent The Sheepdogs on the cover of The Rolling Stone. Decent band, still need some polishing in stage presence. About the best warm-up act I've seen for a while (since We Were Lovers opened for Immaculate Machine). Radio 3 link for Whale Tooth - I like the "Clever" tune.
First time we've seen Mother Mother live. They were actually better than I thought they would be. The smoke machine was somewhat overdone. Opening song was O My Heart, and a lot of the set was from the second album. They did do a few tracks from Touch Up and fewer than I expected from the new album, EUREKA, though of course The Stand was played to an enthusiastic reception.
All in all, quite enjoyable.
