Music blog King of the Gigabitches wrote another great review of MNDR’s show at Bowery Ballroom last night. Not gonna paraphrase, just check it out:

How did I just find out about you last night? I can’t really say much about what was going on stage because I was too busy texting my friends in DC about you. I’d like you to teach a course to every other New York “dance” artist out there on how to work a stage. How to use Ableton to sequence your set to that each tracks flows to the next. How to use visuals. Basically, just how to “be.” Get them out. Get them out of music venues and get them into raves. Teach them how people fucking dance…

You did all of this with a 102-degree fever? Fuck. Just. Fuck. I am almost angry that I had never seen you before.

MNDR played a great show with V.V. Brown and Class Actress at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC last night and The Village Voice was on hand to soak it all in. They really loved her projections, calling it a “a hell of a mind-bending spectacle going behind her, a mixture of Atari-style blocky stuff and digital Spirograph fantasias synced up to respond to both her voice and, ideally, ours.” Though of course that’s nothing without “her muscular, blaring gearhead-techno anthems, with startlingly gooey pop centers, are rousing enough; the mighty ‘Fade to Black’ especially.”

As a physical presence, too, Warner is fascinating, with her blocky white glasses and slightly regal, slightly nerdy air, gripping her mic stand with authority and vogue-ing with aplomb. She casually mentions that she was in the ER last night with a fever of 102; her set actually climaxes between songs, where she tests the whole voice-activated light show thing, wherein we all scream and the screen behind her slowly turns solid white. “Now we’re all connected, like string theory,” she announces, satisfied. “Even though string theory is kinda fake.”

Brooklyn Vegan was on hand to witness MNDR’s sold-out performance at the Bowery Ballroom in New York, opening for Yacht. Looks like it was a crazy show with projections in full effect:
