Fans at Stubb’s got the opportunity to see one of alt-pop’s hottest rising starlets Friday evening when VÉRITÉ brought her Somewhere in Between tour to Austin. The evening began with Sydney-based, alt-pop Tigertown, a funky four-piece consisting of husband and wife Chris (guitar) and Charlie Collins (lead vox + synth), Chris’ brother Alexi (keys) and sister Elodie (bass). Many fans in Austin may remember Tigertown as one of the breakout acts of SXSW 2015. The band’s stage chemistry is cohesive and infectious and they had the whole crowd swinging with their twinkling, triumphant pop.
VÉRITÉ, on the other hand, provided a much more intimate and introspective performance. The singer-songwriter’s dedication is no secret and it’s clear she invests herself entirely, heart and soul, into every song. On stage, she seemed slightly nervous, even charmingly awkward. But, the crowd responded very well to her…especially when she would engage with fans on a personal level allowing herself to become vulnerable. VÉRITÉ is a life-long performer who knows how to entertain a crowd and delivered an inspirational performance with plenty of dancing and a surprising amount of emotions. See some of the highlights below captured by Hannah McBride.
