Alvvays brought Toronto indie to a sold-out show at The Underground in Charlotte. Opening for them was Boston band Horse Jumper of Love. Horse Jumper of love delivered a different sound than Alvvays but they were still able to get the crowd revved up.



Alvvays rocked through the halfway point of their US Spring Tour playing mostly songs from their 2022 album Blue Rev, along with several hits from their first two albums. The crowd was loving the newer songs but the crowd’s enthusiasm during hits like “Archie, Marry Me” and “Not My Baby” was undeniable.



This was my second time seeing Alvvays on tour for this album specifically and I have to say this album gets better with every listen. Alvvays has such a distinct sound that they cultivated through their self titled album and Antisocialites, but they were able to truly define their sound through Blue Rev. The way Alvvays perfected their sound through their last album is abundantly clear in the live performances of these songs. They have such an admirable chemistry that makes their stage presence indisputable.
