Mitski and Japanese Breakfast at Bowery Ballroom (June 20, 2016)

By Will Oliver, October 31st 2016 — with 2 comments


With every release and new tour date stop in New York City, it seems that Mitski just somehow keeps growing her fanbase tenfold. It’s no surprise, as her latest album, Puberty 2, which was released via Dead Oceans and remains one of my favorite albums of 2016 and it seems like many others agree as she not only sold out Bowery Ballroom in the span of a couple hours, but she also sold out Music Hall of Williamsburg and will return later in the year for a sold out Webster Hall.

This was a special night not only because it was a sold out Mitski show, but it also just happened to be the night of a rare strawberry moon. In between songs Mitski reminded us to check out the moon before we left, and she also gave us some insight about where her pink bass went (she joked that she got rid of it because “every fucking live show review was about her pink bass,”).

This month he returned to New York for a two-night run of MHOW/Bowery Ballroom. We caught the Bowery performance on July 7, which featured opening sets from Cende and Japanese Breakfast.

2016 was a wild one. It’s not a year that many of us will look back all that fondly on, but then again, it wasn’t all bad. There were a lot of great albums and songs released throughout the year, from artists of all sizes. From the surprise drop, to the long-awaited albums from greats like Radiohead.

Tomorrow I’ll share my list of my favorite albums of the year, but first, lets dig in to the songs that I had on constant repeat throughout the year.
