On Tuesday, I had the opportunity to listen to an acoustic set put on by Nojave Nomads, Spirit City, and My Fair Fiend in anticipation of their show this Saturday at Gezzo Hall. To show Provo what they were about, the bands decided to play a few songs acoustically at the venue and have an impromptu meet-and-greet.
Mojave Nomads performed an intimate, bare bones set for everyone in attendance and really showed their prowess as a band. Performing songs off their new EP Black Sheep, the audience was treated to songs like “Heavy” among others. Don’t sleep on this young group of rockers: Mojave Nomads is a cant-miss group, especially when they are performing live.
Due to conflicting schedules, Spirit City was not able to perform, but the band members that were there were very friendly and excited about Saturday’s performance. After a brief introduction, two of the members of My Fair Fiend took the stage and treated the audience to some of their songs from the band’s debut self-titled LP. The band was also happy to announce that they recently were able to successfully fund their second full-length album, which they just finished recording in the studio. Fans of My Fair Fiend will be happy to hear that we ought to be able to stream the sophomore album before 2015 is up.
If you all are in Provo this Saturday, you can’t pass on this concert. Everyone turn up to support My Fair Fiend before their tour of Southern California and let’s show our love for Mojave Nomads and Spirit City, too! The bands will be performing at Gezzo Hall in Provo starting at 7pm. Go to gezzohall.com to guarantee your spot at Provo’s newest and largest concert venue!
