Photo Gallery: Raye + Absolutely @ The Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver – October 31st 2023

Absolutely

Opening for her big sister Raye in Vancouver, up-and-coming artist Absolutely showcased her unique blend of haunting melodies and powerful vocals, elevating the crowd and setting the mood for the night’s main attraction. Absolutely’s performance was mesmerizing, eerie, and enchanting, fitting perfectly with the Halloween night vibes .

The setlist was mainly comprised of tracks from her upcoming album CEREBRUM, and while she noted that she was only 19 and this was her first tour, you wouldn’t know it as she moved from song to song. Here are a few shots from her show!

RAYE

British singer-songwriter RAYE brought her electrifying stage presence and powerhouse vocals to Vancouver this week, delivering a night of music that was nothing short of spectacular. The setlist was a well-curated mix of her popular hits and tracks from her latest album, creating a dynamic and engaging experience. RAYE’s rich, soulful voice filled the venue, and her ability to convey raw emotion brought the sold-out audience in close.

RAYE held little back from the audience, taking breaks between songs for long interludes that discussed her previous relationships, advice on how to date a rapper (don’t), and her struggles with addiction, eating disorders, and sexual assault. Not unlike fellow artist Jessie Reyez, RAYE’s life and experiences penetrate her music and inform everything she does, and more than anything else she wants her audience to join her on the journey.

Her are a few photos from the evening we hope you enjoy!
