Detroit, Michigan (October 23, 2018) – Tuesday night in the heart of Detroit’s Midtown, Overcoats & Mitski were set to play a sold out show at the Magic Stick. Fans gathered quickly as close to the stage as they could get in anticipation of watching a couple of their favorite indie acts.
Overcoats was up first and set the tone to what was an amazing night of music. The duo of Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell immediately drew the crowd in with their beautiful harmonies. Elion and Mitchell may have met each other in 2011, but hearing them sing would make you believe that they have been singing together all their lives. They were in sync with each other throughout the entire performance both musically and emotionally. Playing songs such as “23,” “I Don’t Believe In us,” and “Kai’s Song,” Overcoats successfully captured the fans new and old excitement as the night has just started. Overcoats debut album Young is out now.
Shortly after Overcoats warmed the crowd up, Mitski took the stage. Technical difficulties with the in-ear monitors didn’t hamper Mitski’s performance, instead she rolled with it and became more energized as she said reminding her of her punk rock days. Performing songs from her new album Be The Cowboy, Mitski got the sold out crowd singing along with hits such as “Nobody” and “Geyser” as well as some of her older songs such as “Your Best American Girl” and “Happy.” Mitski has sold out the remainder of her Be The Cowboy Tour and for good reason. Her music and lyrics could resonate with anybody who has the pleasure to listen and/or see her live.
Overcoats and Mitski left the sold out Magic Stick crowd elated as both indie acts helped fans unite and leave their mid-week worries at the door.
