I've been digging Vancouver-based band Mother Mother since I first heard the title track from their 2007 debut Touch Up. I only got the chance to see them live on June 18 at NXNE's Portlands festival within a festival. I thought they were great on stage, and photogenic too. It's a real pleasure to see a band that's got the rare combination of great songs, great stage presence and the magical ability to put it all together so well.

We got a full set of the band's quirky yet addictive pop tunes that come across well with their unique voices, style and sound. I'm never too good at keeping track of a set list, but I did jot down a few titles including "Reaper Man", "Body of Years", "Monkey Tree", "Let's Fall In Love", "O My Heart", "Simply Simple", "Hay Loft", a cover of Nirvana's "In Bloom", and "The Stand". Overall, great stuff and I enjoyed the show immensely.

Roy Cohen and I grabbed these shots of their show.
