This past Wednesday night I had the extreme pleasure of catching singer-songwriter, Lauv on his bay area stop of his first headlining tour,’late nights, deep talks’ at the local San Francisco music venue, The Rickshaw Stop. Having previously seen him opening for Michael Blume and RKCB’s co-headlining, 2016’s ‘The Odyssey‘ Tour, I expected a night to remember and it definitely was.

I was pleasantly surprised to arrive at the venue and see a long line of eager fans waiting for the doors to open to get inside the sold out show.

The exciting night began with local Berkeley based Indie pop band, Bows, who provided the inter-celestial pop vibes with their shoe tapping indie pop songs through out their enjoyable set.

The lively crowd was hyped and ready for the star of their night. When Lauv hit the stage the screams were deafening, the singer himself sported that surprised look in his face as the amount of love in the room began to hit him all at once.

As the night went on, Lauv performed all his singles, from “Breathe”, “Question”, “Reforget” to his biggest hit to date, “The Other” among others with his endless charismatic stage presence oozing out every song.

There were many emotional moments that night, however, the one that sticks out the most is what happen as he prepared to perform his newest single, “I Like Me Better” (see my review here). Lauv shared how shocked he was that all the fans were singing his songs and challenged the crowd to sing along to the new single. By the end, he was left speechless because every single person knew the words and it was at that moment fans and their beloved singer connected at the same music wavelength.

Live shows have always been my personal escape, witnessing magic from talented people is a sacred thing. Just as the world got a few shades darker with the deadly Manchester Concert Tragedy a few days earlier, seeing the bay area crowd embrace one another and become a united choir with Lauv became extremely touching and inspiring.
