Mew started their short tour to promote their new album No More Stories Saturday in Boston at the Paradise Rock Club. Mew opened with New Terrain, which was astonishing to see performed live, then played seamlessly into Introducing Palace Players. It was a wall of sound that is rarely heard. The layering of sound was incredible. Mew played for the next hour and twenty minutes covering their entire catalog. Like previous Mew shows, they included a video projector synced to the music, including cats and rabbits playing violins. One of the great moments in the background video is during Sometimes Life Isn’t Easy where they have guys dancing synced to the clapping and stopping their feet, then it changes to kids singing the chorus. As always Mew is an amazing sight to see live and I’ll always see them if they are playing.

Living without cable makes you do many things, including catch up on television shows you never paid attention too. I finally decided to check out Battlestar Galactica this weekend, starting with the mini-series and then onto Season 1 and the start of Season 2. I love something with a sci-fi theme, and BSG holds up pretty well. The characters are pretty good, the story is pretty strong, and the interrelationships between characters has pulled me in. I hope it keeps up and stays strong. Don’t spoil it for me!
Mew is set to release their new album No More Stories… next week in the United States, and they happening to be playing Boston this weekend at The Paradise. I have seen Mew twice back in Seattle, and they put on an amazing visual and audio show. I am pretty excited as Mew is only doing a handful of shows before the release of the albums in the States.
