LAUV brought his “I Met You When I Was 18” World Tour to Austin at The Parish with support by singer-songwriter Ashe.
Ashe began the show and the crowd really seemed to enjoy her style of music, as it was quite similar to that of LAUV’s. She performed some of her popular songs that some of the crowd seemed to know such as “Used To It,” and “West Coast.” Her voice was very soothing and her songs were quite catchy, they made you want to sing-along and dance.
The crowd was at their loudest pitch when LAUV took the stage. He first began at his keyboard and made his way to center stage where he brought out an umbrella that said “I Met You When I was 18,” on it and broke out into his song “Paris In The Rain.” He was very energetic in his set, which is what one hopes for from a young artist on the rise. He recently toured with Ed Sheeran and gained a lot of popularity which has definitely helped his solo career. He performed his big hit with DJ Snake “A Different Way,” everybody in the crowd sang along and knew every single word.
He ended his set with “I Like Me Better,” and “The Other.” LAUV is still on tour through February and will head overseas to Indonesia and Japan in early march.
