KCRW Festival: Maggie Rogers, Alvvays
August 13, 2023 • 7:00 pm PDT
Producer, songwriter, and performer Maggie Rogers’ shows are equal parts euphoric and intimate and have become one of her strongest calling cards. A mesmerizing live act, Maggie has built a global fan base after headliner shows on both sides of the Atlantic, and now her path winds its way to Hollywood for her Bowl debut.
Alvvays’ latest album, Blue Rev, is a revelatory set of songs that Pitchfork calls “a feast” and “a deep dive through the history of pop and rock” in their Best New Music review. The Toronto power-pop group’s lightness of touch and Molly Rankin’s lyrics may make it all seem effortless, but these songs are expertly crafted, the result of a five-year writing and recording process. The end product is a compulsively lovable joyride confirming the quintet’s place atop a new generation of winning, whip-smart indie rock.
