Brooklyn Vegan reviews MNDR/Juiceboxxx Monster Island show.

MNDR (aka Amanda Warner) opened the Brooklyn show at Monster Island on Wednesday night (11/18). Shouting, singing and rapping over techno-centric beats, she showed respect to tour-mate Juiceboxxx as well as a strong influence by him. She fared better than her mentor though, who played a super-brief, possibly truncated, set of less than 20 minutes. Opening with his most well-known tune/statement of intent, “Thunder Jam #5”, Juiceboxxx positioned himself in sort of a “me against the crowd/world” way, alienating himself from the audience. It was unfortunate, because a basement show like this one could have been the ideal place to see him.

We here at WonderSound love the Juiceboxxx Thunder Jam series!
