MASS MoCA: Alvvays

Canadian indie pop band Alvvays will play MASS MoCA on September 2. Alvvays’ self-titled debut, released when much of the band was still in its early 20s, offered speculation about a distant future—marriage, professionalism, interplanetary citizenship. Antisocialites wrestled with the woes of the now, especially the anxieties of inching toward adulthood. Named for the sugary alcoholic beverage singer Molly Rankin and keyboardist Kelli MacLellan used to drink as teens on rural Cape Breton, Blue Rev looks both back at that country past and forward at an uncertain world, reckoning with what we lose whenever we make a choice about what we want to become.

September 2, 8 – 10 p.m.
