See MNDR on Monday Night

August 27th, 2010

You’re probably familiar with the expression “Go West, young man.” Well, simple logic dictates that the opposite would be “Go East, young woman,” which is exactly what Amanda Warner did, in the hopes of becoming a songwriter for hire, when she ditched Oakland for NYC. But then she met Peter Wade and decided she wanted to write for herself and front her own band. And thus began MNDR (above, playing “Fade to Black” for Fearless Music). Warner and Wade uploaded four songs to MySpace last year, which later became an EP, and are currently working on a full-length album to be released next year. In the meantime, MNDR has opened for Deerhoof and Massive Attack, and you can see what the fuss is about on Monday at Mercury Lounge.
