Alvvays and Forever. Can’t get enough of that Mollypop? No worries — our Canadian road doggies will continue beeboopin’ all over North America this year with recently announced stops at Austin City Limits Music Festival, Osheaga Festival, Field Trip, plus a Hollywood Bowl performance will The War on Drugs!

Paste included Alvvays in their '10 Best Rock Bands at Coachella' and Variety praised their "winning set” at the fest as well, landing them a 'Top 10' performance alongside Beyonce and Cardi B. The band’s set this past weekend at The National’s Homecoming Festival in Cincinnati was unsurprisingly awesome as well, per The Ringer:

"Alvvays, cutting but good-natured Canadians with a sad-librarian affect and a throwback sort of bouncy indie-pop exuberance, nonetheless have a familiar mix of introvert and extrovert to them. Sunday night, singer Molly Rankin bellowed the scruffy anthem “Archie, Marry Me” like it deserved to be a massive hit, evoking the 10-years-past era when it might’ve actually been one; the band put out one of 2017’s best records, Antisocialites, which manages to make lovelorn sadness feel celebratory and communal, a portable festival of one."

Buy your tickets for any number of their upcoming gigs here. Evidently it's a very good idea. BTW, also very much of note is a recent PSA Molly Rankin shared about RESPECTING BOUNDARIES at shows. Educate yourself and spread the word. Touching people without consent is not cool. Don’t be uncool.
