On tour to promote its new album “Sirenler” (Sirens), the Turkish alt-rock band Mor ve Ötesi created perhaps the most intimate environment it could have, making the 200 fans in the crowd now former strangers. Rickshaw Stop was a rather simple and small venue, with casual red and blue lighting mingling to form a purple hue to reflect the theme colors of “Sirenler.” The band members sat on stools cramped up on a tiny stage, making the show feel like a conversation over morning tea. The group members often exchanged warm embraces on stage, and even held frequent conversations with audience members.

Despite the new songs receiving somewhat low energy from the crowd, everyone was otherwise very engaged and loving. As Mor ve Ötesi stepped onto the stage for its encore, the band was faced not with cheers and applause, but with its song “Oyunbozan” being sung in unison.
