Friday’s Pick: Alvvays Free Show at Waterloo

Rachel Corbelli

Indie pop group Alvvays came together in Toronto and is now playing their music all over the world. They’ll stop by Austin to give a free show at Waterloo Records (600A North Lamar Blvd) before headlining at Red 7 later Friday night.

The band is made up of childhood friends Molly Rankin and Kerri MacLellan who began playing music in high school with Alec O’Hanley. A few years later the trio found Brian Murphy and Philip MacIssac,  and they began making melodies.

Rankin is the daughter of John Morris Rankin, a member of the Canadian Country Music Award winning Rankin Family band.

Their free live performance will begin at 5 p.m. Refreshments will be provided by Shiner. If you like what you hear, see their set with Absolutely Free at Red 7 (611 E. 7th St) beginning at 9.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
