NVDES kicked off their Better Places tour with Pierce Fulton at Stubb’s in Austin, Texas on Tuesday, 11/14. Their self-described laptop-punk music was accompanied by their colorful visuals from LA NVDITÉ, Vol. 1 – THE VISUALS, and more, creating a playful atmosphere as frontman Josh Ocean danced around the stage, alternating between singing, rapping, and messing around with his instruments. He encouraged the crowd to do the same and to “get nude” with ourselves, i.e. to be real with and get to know ourselves better. The set included a Bernie Sanders shoutout, a call for positivity, and the pleasant surprise that the DJ, Audrey Vignoles, is also the vocalist on “Do Ya Think About Me.” The energy was that of a living room jam sesh with your close friends, who just so happen to be real-life touring musicians.
