Scottish trio CHVRCHES¬†played a small, invite-only show at the iHeartRadio Theater in lower Manhattan on Monday, December 12. The concert, broadcast live on the web, was the band’s second performance of the day, having recorded an appearance on Letterman a few hours earlier, and their second-to-last US show of the year. The band ran through their most of their debut record, The Bones of What You Believe, as well as a couple songs off their Recover EP.

Despite complaining of exhaustion/sleep deprivation, the band were convivial and charming with their stage banter, with singer Lauren Mayberry telling a particularly endearing story about their earlier experience on Letterman, where she had to stop herself from screaming Gandalf quotes at Ian McKellan.
