“We love to play,” said Greta Kline, known by her stage moniker Frankie Cosmos. She meant it more than musically-she and keyboardist/vocalist Lauren Martin shared a lighthearted banter in between songs (“I’m crazy.” “No, I’m crazy.” “No, you’re crazy. “…yeah.”). The group played older favorites like “Embody” and “Sinister,” along with songs from this year’s Vessel. The performance, like the songs themselves, was both whimsical and heartfelt. By the end, we were all swaying.

SOAR began the night with songs that were at once melodic and rock n’ roll. Ian Sweet followed with their hometown show of the tour and filled the stage with energy and soul.
