The newly renovated Kessler Theater provided the perfect backdrop on October 9th for an amazing evening of music and all around good times, as it was the first show of The Morning Benders final stint of touring for their latest release, Big Echo. Joining them this time around and starting things off were Cults, who did a great job of setting the tone for the evening with their 60’s garage-rock infused indie-pop. You can download their debut self-titled 7″ on their bandcamp page. Next up was Twin Sister, and I must say I was absolutely blown away by them. Their stage presence was perfection, and their tunes were downright palpable. Towards the end of their set they performed a great cover of La Bionda’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover” that was an instant crowd favorite. And to end the evening off as the anticipation of their arrival began to rise heavily amongst the die hard fans of the crowd, The Morning Benders took the stage and delivered a solid set of chorus driven pop gems. Their encore consisted of a new song called “Virgins”, of which you can check out a nice live video from La Blogetheque here. Overall this was a really great show, and I highly recommend you try to catch this tour on one of it’s many stops from now through January.
