LIVE MUSIC: MIPS POWER TRIO
Join us for a Tuesday night rock show at Nancy O’s. Mip’s songwriting has been deemed “witty, cutting, astute and quirky” and the band’s loyal fans hail them as Toronto’s best kept secret. The Mip Power Trio formed in 2010 less than a year after Mip landed in Toronto, alone, with a suitcase and 2 guitars determined to prove that a small town kid from northwestern BC could show the city a thing or two about how to wail. After scouring open mics and punk havens she met bassist Greg Kowalczyk and drummer Devin Janetta. Soon enough the band found a sound that blends the punchiness of old school punk a la Ramones, the upbeat weirdness of Doug and the Slugs, and the spirited lyrics of early Bruce Springsteen.
