The Orpheum was sold out last night for the last concert in their 2012 cross Canada tour of their latest album, The Sticks.
Mother Mother's new album hosts a number of solid, catchy songs with a message like, "Let's Fall in Love". When the band started into The Stand, it took a few bars to recognize the injection of the Pixies' Cactus. It was a nice mix that worked well and was not lost on the crowd.
But it was especially clear this band has a solid following when they broke into Ghosting, a song from a few years back. Those who weren't already on their feet rose to belt out the lyrics along with the others.
Mother Mother closed the show with Oh My Heart and Let's Fall in Love a finale that was satisfying all around.
