Make Me Social Takes ‘The Journey’ with Mishka

#MishkaLive

One of our favorite clients and Mailboat Records artist, Mishka, kicked off his 2014 “The Journey” tour at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn this past Thursday night and a few of the Make Me Social team members headed out to enjoy the show together. While the weather outside was on the chilly side, the night’s music brought sunshine and warmth to the crowd.

First we caught opener Sarah Blacker, a Boston-based singer-songwriter with an incredible voice and catchy pop-folk tunes.

When Mishka took the stage, his soul-infused reggae tunes filled the crowd with an infectious energy as they sang along and danced throughout his set. To help further bring the audience along on his journey, Mishka added an incredibly unique element to his show by having his friend, artist Jay Alders, create a painting onstage throughout the performance.

At one point, one of the concert-goers shouted out, “I am so happy right now!”, which got a shy smile and, “Thank you,” from the singer before breaking into his great new song, “All of This Time”.
