On a cool fall night, the historic Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee found itself filled to near-capacity, as indie-rock band Mt. Joy stopped by on their fall tour. Supporting band, Wilderado, opened the night with solid, high-energy set, preparing the eager fans for the main act.
Currently based out of Los Angeles, with roots in Philadelphia, the five-member group made their debut in 2016 with their single, “Astrovan”. Since, Mt. Joy has released their self-titled album, which has had several tracks, such as “Silver Lining” and “Jenny Jenkins” chart on AAA. With string lights draped across the stage, Mt. Joy performed with a warm, passionate sound that had the crowd engaged for the entirety of their set.
The group played many of their hits, new music and even performed a mashup consisting of “Julia”, Bill Wither’s “Ain’t No Sunshine”, and “Clint Eastwood” by the Gorillaz, which had the crowd dancing along. With a new album on the way, Mt. Joy is definitely a band to check out next time they’re nearby.
