Roadrunner Music Hall brought the energy on a Sunday night. MisterWives & Bishop Briggs are six shows into their co-headlining “Don’t Look Down” tour, and made a stop in Boston to bring an incredible party to those who know: you never miss a Sunday show. The two bands created a unique stage setup, with a seven foot riser that was surrounded in video LEDs for some spectacular effects and videos throughout the evening.
This night, MisterWives had the first of the two headline slots. Fresh off their new album “Nosebleeds,” Mandy Leed and company came out swinging with their new song Out of Your Mind, setting the energy for the evening. Mandy’s stage presence is commanding and bubbly, as she bounced all over the stage for an hour and a half straight. Playing through classics like whywhywhy, SUPERBLOOM, and Our Own House and new fan favorites such as Where Do We Go From Here, Dagger, and Trigger Pull, the band electrified the audience with an absolute powerhouse of a performance.
Bishop Briggs’ frenetic energy brought the roof down as the second headliner. She opened up with her song Art of Survival before jumping into a wild dance-fueled set with a run of songs including Wild Horses, Cherry on Top, and MY SHINE. Briggs had the entire venue moving and belting out every word to her songs as she serenaded the audience through her set, including covering Hozier’s Take Me to Church. Coming off that cover, she took her show up a notch to blow out the evening with her hits Bad, Revolution, and River to end the evening.
