Thursday night at the very classy Jefferson Center, N.C. based band, Mipso, put on a show that was both mellow and flat-footin’, finger-pickin’ good. If you happened to miss it, here’s what listening to Mipso live is like: sitting outside when it’s seventy-two degrees and sunny, having a good, hard laugh with an old friend, and getting a smile from a stranger. It just makes you feel happy.
And that’s not to say that Mipso songs are all butterflies and rainbows because they’re certainly not. Their setlist contained quite a few songs that captured the angsty, mid-to-late 20’s period that we all have to suffer through. What I’m talking about is a sonic happiness.
