Stitched Up Hearts aren’t your average “newcomers”. Currently on tour with Pop Evil on their intimate cross country venture, Stitched Up Hearts themselves have been attracting a crowd of their own to the stops. This happened to be the case Tuesday night in Moorhead, MN when they filled the floor space of the small Garage Bar with attendees specifically there to see them.
With a memorable stage performance that consisted of synchronized headbanging, hair twirling and an amazing chemistry amongst the bands mates, this crew from Los Angeles, CA packed a punch. Frontwoman and powerhouse Mixi Demner was completely captivating with her charismatic presence and connection with the audience. Guitarists Merritt Goodwin and Nick Bedrosian, and bassist Randy Mathias were electric as they annihilated every song, playing off of the energy of drummer James Decker, who beat the kit with a mischievous grin.
The space was small and standing room was tight, but that didn’t stop the adrenaline from pumping as the fans rocked out to Stitched Up Heart’s radio hit “Finally Free” and their latest release “Monster”. The band performed a few new tracks from their album Never Alone, released June 17th and despite many in attendance never having heard these songs, there was an immediate fondness to them.
This five-piece has all the makings of any other major headlining act, it’s only a matter of building the following, which from what I saw will be an easy feat. Their music is hard enough to grab your attention but has a substance to it that gives you something to connect to. They put on a great show and keep you interested from start to end.
