4/21/17; Missio, Sundara Karma, Coast Modern @ Marquis Theater
By Alan Sperry
Fans were lined up at the entrance of the Marquis Theatre long before the doors opened in anticipation of Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement Spring Tour which has Missio as the headlining act, and other performers Sundara Karma and Coast Modern.
Missio’s recognizable anthem Middle Fingers was #1 on the SiriusXM Alt Nation Alt18 for the week of April 3rd. Matthew Brue and David Butler are keeping the Momentum going by developing a spectacular stage presence and performance that enhances their music and embraces their lyrics.
Look for Missio’s new release Loner to be out on May 19.
Indie Rock/Indie Pop sensations from England, Sundara Karma kicked off the show with their Alternative sounds. Sundara Karma had Oscar Pollock on vocals and guitar, Haydn Evans on drums, Dom Cordell on bass and Ally Baty on guitar. At times, sounding like Kings of Leon, Sundara Karma blazed through their set with songs A Young Understanding, Olympia, Fleshbloom, Flame, Great Heights, She Said, Happy Family, and ended with Loveblood. They were up close and personal with fans who were pressed up against the stage area. The concertgoers loved it!
Coast Modern featured Coleman Trapp and Luke Atlas. Coast Modern entertained the capacity crowd with Going Down, Tiny Umbrella, Guru, Cute, Animals, Cool, Wild Things, Comb My Hair, Run It Up, They Way It Was, Pockets Full Of No, and Hollow Life.
Fans of the nearly SOLD OUT show were witness to great performances on Friday night!
