Misterwives took the stage at San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom, and put on an incredible performance. The stage was decorated and covered with flowering vines, flowers and potted plants. Center stage and behind the band stood a tall projector screen, and once the band came roaring out singer Mandy Lee wore a glittery turquoise outfit with the band wearing pale pink suits. From the first opening note and song, it was obvious this San Francisco audience was set for an unforgettable night.
This tour is the first time since its release Misterwives has played songs from their album Superbloom live in front of a crowd, and clearly the band was excited to be able to do so again. The entire show was full of heart and energy. The set leaned heavy on songs from Superbloom, and was played mostly in order. The band took the stage and the night began with album opener “the end.” The danceable beats filled the ballroom as Lee danced and spun around the stage, continuing to do so throughout the night through all of Misterwives’ upbeat songs.
Things slowed down with performances of “valentine’s day” and “over the rainbow,” as Lee sat on the edge of the stage for a more intimate performance of “valentine’s day.” It didn’t take long for the energy to be picked right back up, and of course songs from the band’s other albums had to be played. The show concluded with performances of “Coloring Outside the Lines” from their second album, Connect the Dots, and their 2015 hit “Reflections.” After a crowd chant and an outfit change, the band came out for an encore of “Superbloom” and “Our Own House.”
Misterwives is guaranteed to be one of the best shows to attend, but the energy of this show is different. After being away from live concerts so long, and the gratitude the band feels to share songs and lyrics of their most vulnerable moments, the band sounds bigger and feels closer than ever.
