Scottish electro-rock trio (touring as a quartet) Chvrches kicked off the Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley’s 2019 campaign with a terrific set on a foggy Friday night in April. The Bay Area was once again the beneficiary of a slew of “Fauxchella” shows, featuring bands playing Coachella who stick around California and the West Coast in between the festival’s two weekends. And on April 19th, Chvrches played what they claimed to be their largest US headlining show to date. And despite battling some serious allergies, singer Lauren Mayberry and the the rest of the band–Martin Doherty, Iain Cook, and touring drummer Jonny Scott–filled the amphitheater with their insanely catchy tunes, fantastic light show, and general friendly Scottishness.
Looked like a great show by CHVRCHES and always excellent photos by Greg Chow.
