The Antlers @ Union Transfer.

After undergoing a recent name change, Mr Twin Sister opened last night at Union Transfer to an early crowd of teens and dream pop lovers.

Vocalist Andrea Estella took the stage, donning shorts so short they could barely be seen beneath her oversized-plaid suit jacket. She danced in front of her four chill wave gentlemen with billowing blue pigtails from her head. On their second night of tour with The Antlers, the band seemed energized, though perhaps slightly overwhelmed by the audience.

Despite a technically difficult set change, The Antlers entered, and the lights went down. Four jellyfish shaped cages of light backed the bank as they opened with “Palace,” off their LP, Familiars, released two weeks ago. With the first burst of trumpet during “Doppelganger,” the balcony bar crowd simmered and the audience finally became entranced in music.

The crowd was excitable and yearned for old favorites off of their first LP Hospice, which vocalist Peter Silberman eventually sprinkled throughout the set. Though a mixed crowd gathered at Union Transfer, all tensions were quelled by a solid performance.
