I know you’re back

Alvvays performing at the Burton Cummings Theatre

Yesterday, I went to my first concert in a few years. Alvvays, the band behind my 2022 Album of the Year, played at the Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg.

I’ve been following Alvvays since I first heard Archie, Marry Me on CBC Radio 3. That song has turned into probably a top-5 song for me, and they’ve only grown since that record. They’ve been my most-played artist by a considerable margin since they released Blue Rev this past October.

It was a joy to see these songs that have gotten me through the winter played live. Just as special was experiencing it with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. I’d like to highlight a song or two, but the entire set was incredible.

If you haven’t heard Alvvays live, check out the live session they recorded for KEXP earlier this year.
