What a performance last night by Lynn and the boys of PVRIS. From the moment they got on the stage and kicked in with their latest single “Monster,” the crowd got moving fast. For many, this was their first show after coming out of a lagging pandemic and it showed. The enthusiasm was on high and never let go during the 1 1/2 hour set that ran through hits like “What’s Wrong,” “My House,” “Give Me a Minute,” and the powerhouse “Death of Me.”
Peppered between songs was the soft-spoken singer explaining that it’d been so long since the band had performed that she was rusty on what to say. She made us smile when she dedicated “Stay Golden” to the Golden Gate Bridge. A sweet gesture indeed that was followed by a fun fact about the band and San Francisco. The latter being the first city that the band had driven to as a musical unit in those early formative years.
The night was electric, fun, and refreshing. After such an abysmal period this was just what the doctor ordered. At the end of the performance, fans were ushered out with beaming smiles on their faces that will surely last for days. Live music is back and PVRIS was just the band to ring the bell.
