It was a truly ’special’ evening getting to see Mew perform at Mod Club Theatre once again, a venue the band hasn’t played since they toured And The Glass Handed Kites over a decade ago.
Fans this evening got treated to an assortment of great Mew material, with a focus on some of the new songs off the band’s recently-released Visuals album. As with all Mew tours, lead singer Jonas Bjerre’s wonderful and strange visuals accompanied a majority of the songs performed – Visuals featuring heavily on spiraling Kaleidoscopic visuals that were projected upon the band as they played.
Late into the set this evening, someone in the audience yelled out “I love you, Mew”, and Jonas smiled and quietly responded saying “We love you too.”
“Am I Wry? No”, “156” and their usual set-ending track “Comforting Sounds” closed off this evening in epic form. Mew offer truly diverse elements of indie alternative music, prog rock, space rock and heavy jams unique to their band. Shortly after the band finished their set, all of the band members came into the venue and met some of their fans, posing for photos and signing albums.
Jonas Bjerre, Johan Wohlert, Silas Utke Graae Jørgensen along with touring members Nick Watts and Mads Wegner delivered the goods once again this evening. If there is such as thing as a bad Mew show, I’ve certainly never seen it. Mew is a musical treasure, and we were lucky to have them back in our fine city once again.
