A thick lazy fog filled the lobby of the Vogue Theatre and blanketed the crowd that screamed behind the red velvet curtains. The entire crowd was on their feet, some even standing on the seats to catch a sight of bedroom pop pioneer Cuco. Bringing his dreamy sunshine vibes to Vancouver, Cuco fit right in with the lingering heat wave by setting fire to the stage with a passionate performance. The internet sensation who has spent the last two years skyrocketing to fame was met with so much excitement one would think he was the opener.

As Rex Orange County stepped out, an eruption of cheers muffled his introduction as he was welcomed to Vancouver for the first time. Dressed in a casual t-shirt and jeans, Rex performed with zero pretension. Letting the crowd in on his insecurities and personal anguish which is masked by his upbeat funky melodies. With his Randy Newman charm, Rex brings a sort of solitude to the room.

The crowd was moved to a state of bliss, swaying as they held their friends. Singing along with Rex quickly turned into the crowd singing for him when he played the first few notes of “Sunflower” and not a single lyric was missed by the sea of voices washing over Rex who played enthusiastically and continued the sing-along with a seamless transition to an acoustic cover of Alicia Keys’ “No One”.

Ending the night with an encore performance of “Loving Is Easy” Rex Orange County epitomized the free feeling of summertime by making Apricot Princess the theme of the season. With a memorable first performance in Vancouver, Rex Orange County is welcomed to bring his unique lounge-y RnB sound back anytime he pleases.
