Danish singer MØ and opening act Grace Mitchell performed at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on Dec. 2 and their concert was absolutely amazing.
Since MØ has become a well-known musician, it’s very surprising to see her performing at a small venue like the Paradise Rock Club. Her fans definitely enjoyed having an intimate jam session rather than being in a stadium and far from the stage. People of all ages were at the concert. Young teenagers and adults were all sharing a common love for MØ’s music.
Grace Mitchell opened the show with a mix of upbeat and slow songs. She really loves performing in front of a crowd and she had a lot of energy on stage. I was really impressed with her talent when I found out that she is only 19 years old. The crowd was calm, soaking in the music as they enjoyed Mitchell’s light upbeat songs.
MØ’s performance was very theatrical. Her backdrop was a wall tapestry with her logo emblazoned on it. She had flashing LED lights and mini disco balls. The lights corresponded with the beat to her music and the adrenaline rush of rocking out to her music was absolutely incredible.
When she first came on stage, she stood still until the beat dropped. Then, everyone went crazy. MØ danced to every song that she sang. For some songs, she would do an interpretive dance. At one point, she got off the stage, went to the second level and started singing and dancing with her audience. It was completely insane because her fans got to be up close to her.
Even though MØ was ill, it didn’t stop her from having a great time in Boston. She engaged with the crowd and they jammed with her. Her energy with the crowd was infectious. (No pun intended.) She sang songs from her album, “No Mythologies to Follow,” which was amazing. She did an encore and performed her two hit songs “Lean On” and “Final Song”. The whole crowd sang along to the songs and every music lover got to connect with each other.
MØ brought good vibes to Boston and hopefully she will come back to Boston in the near future.
