Time Out says
CMJ. Energetic indie-pop outfit Avan Lava, whose live shows include choreographed backup dancers and trippy light shows, take the top slot at this daytime Terrorbird Media party. You'll find Jimmy LaValle warming up the stage with his ambient acoustic atmospheres as the Album Leaf—a jarring shift from the crunchy power-chord punch of highly buzzed queercore duo PWR BTTM, who open the show. In short, expect a roller coaster of moods from set to set.
