Vancouver indie rock buzz band Mother Mother, who have been touring the festival circuit this summer, will bring their beautifully-crafted pop-rock melodies and vocal harmonies to the intimate Rogue Bar Friday, Aug. 21. Gospel Claws are set to open the 21-and-older show. Doors are at 8 p.m. and cover is $10. The group is currently touring in support of O My Heart, their 2008 sophomore effort, which Spin Magazine touted last year. The album also garnered the No. 3 Best Indie Album of The Year title on iTunes as well as No. 5 Best Albums of the Year and No. 3 Best Canadian Albums of the Year.
