I caught the band MEW on their US tour …

The band MEW stopped in at JBTV last week to play seven songs the morning before their show at Park West here in Chicago.

Above is the portrait I took of them before their performance.

They seemed super cool. Reserved, but super talented and their fans LOVE them. I imagine their show last Saturday was well attended and enjoyed to the N’th.

To learn a bit more, here’s a bit from their Wiki:

“Mew are a Danish alternative rock band, consisting of Jonas Bjerre (lead vocals), Johan Wohlert (bass) and Silas Utke Graae Jørgensen (drums). Johan Wohlert left the band in 2006 before the birth of his first child, but made a return in 2013 while the band were in the studio, before making his first live appearances since his departure in 2014. Guitarist Bo Madsen left the band in June 2015. This was confirmed in a statement on the band’s official website on 1 July of the same year.[1]

Whilst their music may be classified as indie and on occasion progressive rock, Bo Madsen said “I usually say we are ‘indie stadium.’ A mix between ‘feelings’ and ‘thinking’ is usually good.””

Here are some stills I took of their performance:
