Mister Heavenly @ Cargo 12/12/11

Here are a few of my slightly blurry photos from last night's Mister Heavenly concert at Cargo. When I booked the ticket a month or so ago, I had no idea Michael Cera (star of Juno and Scott Pilgrim etc) was their touring bass player. His presence did attract quite a few female fans which was funny to observe. I ended up standing right in front of him which in a weird way made me feel quite awkward because I didn't want to stare. OK, I did stare a bit but more out of intrigue than anything fan girlish...;)

So if you're unaware of Mister Heavenly they're what you might call an indie rock super group with members including Honus Honus of Man ManNicholas Thorburn of Islands and The Unicorns, and Joe Plummer of Modest Mouse and The Shins.

They covered all of the songs from their one and only album so far, Out of Love with the foot stomping Bronx Sniper sounding amazing as did more laid back Reggae Pie and rocking Mister Heavenly. Honus Honus jumping into the crowd and hammering away at his keyboard in a poncho added a nice colourful flair to the set. I did have a little chuckle when I saw the band leave the stage and then could see them trying to get into their backstage room and I don't think anyone could remember the code for the door. They ended up crouching in the doorway and then returning to the stage for a final few songs.

I must also mention the support act Wet Nuns (the names!) whose sound was something in between Nirvana's Bleach and Insecticide (think Stain) only a lot louder and a bit more incomprehensible. Probably not a sound I'd normally listen to but they did rock out live.

All in all a very enjoyable night and who cares who is in the band as long as they sound good.
