LIVE PHOTOS + REVIEW: Yoke Lore // San Diego, CA


Adrian Galvin, known to music fans as Yoke Lore, kicked off his national headlining tour in San Diego, CA. The city was bustling on a Saturday evening with CRSSD Fest happening near the water and TwitchCon taking over the convention center. Not too far away in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego, you’d find the Music Box full of fans ready to see Yoke Lore.

Los Angeles-based band RUNNNER started off the night with folk-driven pop, including songs from their latest EP fan on

Yoke Lore then took the stage to an eager and cheerful crowd. With the first show of any tour comes fun surprises, like a cover of “Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden, which was Adrian’s favorite song when he was 11-years-old. At one point, he showed off more of his musical talents by setting down the banjo and switching spots with drummer Garren Orr. 

The screen behind Adrian and Garren displayed intriguing visuals all night while they played irresistibly feel-good and dreamy tracks. Yoke Lore also played a new song for the first time called “Body Parts,” working out a few kinks with the trackpad along the way. “That went pretty well. It wasn’t terrible, right?” But like he expresses in his song “Goodpain,” sometimes you have to struggle in order to get to the good part, and the rest of the night went off without a hitch.

Yoke Lore’s tour took him all through the United States and Canada the past 6 weeks. For fans wanting to catch Yoke Lore in Europe, he’ll be supporting Bishop Briggs on the upcoming December leg of her tour.
