Temperatures dropped toward the 40s on Sunday night, but that did little to put the chill on indie-pop band AJR’s show, PNC Music Pavilion’s second concert of the 2022 season. The New York-based trio is composed of multi-instrumentalist brothers Adam, Jack, and Ryan Met.
Though they began performing in 2006, busking in Central and Washington Square parks, they’ve seen more mainstream success in recent years, hitting No. 8 on the Billboard 200 with their third album Neotheater, released in 2019, and seeing their single “Bang!” peak at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2021.
The setlist that was chock full of hits, including “Bang!,” “Dear Winter,” “Burn the House Down,” and “Sober Up,” providing a solid soundtrack to the band’s antics, which included plenty of dancing and video screen excitement.
