Monica Birkenes was born in the small, southern Norwegian town of Grimstad. She developed her vocal abilities while singing in church choirs when she was young. After releasing music under her own name in 2009, Birkenes decided to change her sound, favoring a more synth-based pop.
She chose the moniker Mr. Little Jeans, based on a character from the Wes Anderson film Rushmore. She was discovered on MySpace and signed, and exploded into the mainstream with her dream pop cover of Arcade Fire’s “Suburbs” in 2011. Her first EP, Good Mistake, dropped in 2014, followed shortly after by her first full-length Pocketknife.
Her show takes place at The Teragram Ballroom on Saturday, December 3rd. Doors open at 8:00PM with the show starting promptly at 9:00PM. All ages. Tickets to the show start at $18.00 and can be purchased here. Or, if you’re feeling lucky enter our contest below!
