In front of a hometown crowd at Rickshaw Stop, Lauv already looks like a natural performer

Rickshaw Stop – San Francisco

As possibly music’s next teenybopper heartthrob, Lauv (born Ari Leff) arrived at Rickshaw Stop last night for the second stop on his “late nights, deep talks tour” this spring.

A little more soulful than the Biebs himself, Lauv set himself apart with his dark R&B tones and genuine connection to his fans. Although he’s still on the up and up, you could hardly tell due to his natural ability to get the audience adrenalized.


Lauv’s 2016 single “The Other” currently has almost 80 million streams on Spotify, and it was nice to see the SF native back home performing amongst a group of dedicated followers.

Bows, a Berkeley band that described itself as “ethereal” and “space-like,” opened the show. Most of their songs had a whimsical reverb/auto-tune sound to them, leaving the crowd with a sense of excitement to hear more music as the night went on.
