If you’re tired of all the tricks and looking for a treat, MOTR Pub has something pretty sweet. Mothers, Mega Bog, and Orchards take the stage Halloween night.
Mothers is an indie/folk rock band from Athens, Georgia. The band began as Kristine Leschper’s solo project in 2013. Leschper has been influenced by artists like Interpol, Sufjan Stevens, The Microphones, and Neutral Milk Hotel. The result of her past and current influences is a wonderful amalgamation of Angel Olsen, Big Thief, Sharon Van Etten, and Waxahatchee. Mothers, as we know them today, truly took form in 2015, consisting of Kristine Leschper (guitar, vocals); Matthew Anderegg (drums); Drew Kirby (guitar); Chris Goggins (bass). The band released its debut album When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired in 2016. Drew Kirby left the band in 2017. Mothers is currently touring for its sophomore record, Render Another Ugly Method, which was released this year.
Mega Bog is a lo-fi, guitar-based band out of Seattle created by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Erin Birgy in 2011. Birgy has not only worked with a lot of musicians on her own project but has been featured on songs by bands like Big Thief. Mega Bog’s second and most recent album, Happy Together, was released in February 2017. The band’s song “London” was named the KEXP Song of the Day on February 17, 2017.
Orchards is a local psychedelic-pop band formed by Austin Tracy. In the studio, the band consists of just Tracy (vocals, guitar, bass, keys) and Rob Stamler (drums, percussion), but live you will see Tracy, alongside Casey Cavanaugh, Anissa Pulcheon, and John Clooney. Orchards released its debut album, S/T, back in April this year. This band puts on a killer live show, so make sure you’re there when the show starts.
Mothers, Mega Bog, and Orchards will be playing a free show at MOTR Pub on October 31. This show is the perfect transition from spooky season to turkey season!
