A triple bill of female empowerment hit the Pageant Friday night with Bishop Briggs, MisterWives, and Natalie Jane. Each act had a powerhouse of a frontwoman with impressive vocals and a helluva lot of energy and power! The high-tech, high-design stage, which included massive risers and LED lights, was shared by each act.

Starting the night was Natalie Jane—an impressive vocalist accompanied only by a drummer. Despite only being a duo, booming drums filled the Pageant from the first few beats, proving it was going to be a danceworthy night. 

A more seasoned MisterWives brought an impressive amount of energy, much like their previous stops in St. Louis, but they are certainly more at ease commanding a big stage with a large crowd in attendance. Vocalist Mandy Lee seemed quite comfortable starting their set high atop the riser at centerstage, and she wowed the crowd at the end of their set by jumping into the barricade to be ultra close to fans. Their set was extremely high energy while also remaining technically proficient.

Bishop Briggs headlined the show and closed out the night, starting the set with copious amounts of gratitude for not only the crowd, but for being a part of this triple bill of talented women. There was definitely a theme of the night:  be grateful, keep growing, roll with the punches, and rock your little heart out when times are tough. | Laura Jerele
