This week, Mitski blew the crowd at Gramps away with a stellar performance.
The show opened with Weaves, a Toronto-based indie rock quartet who set the night off on an electrifying start, followed by Fear of Men, an English dreampop female-fronted band who converted every person in the crowd into an immediate fan.
The Puberty 2 singer took the stage and immediately launched into tracks from her latest release, including “Dan the Dancer”, “Once More to See You” and “Thursday Girl.” One thing about Mitski is her powerful stage presence, which the crowd responded to in a way that alluded to none of them wanting to miss a single second.
The highlight of the night was Mitski’s moving words midway her set, addressing the crowd about the recent political election. “Who else is fucking devastated? I hear you. I’m with you. Please don’t let go,” she told the crowd. “We’re not done yet.”
