Meanwhile, opener Liam Hayes, who goes by the stage moniker Plush, managed, just like Marling, to captivate the audience without sounding or looking so alone on a big stage in a big theater despite being the only one up there. When thinking about Hayes’ sound, think Foxygen meets Kurt Vile, or even Harry Nilsson-like vocals complementing shimmery, gorgeous guitar licks. Hayes and Marling couldn’t be more different, but offered a one-two punch well worth the price of admission. – JM
