Vista Kicks came onstage at the Fillmore to big cheers, and got the sold out crowd ready to go for Larkin Poe. But it quickly became clear their set would be way more than a warmup, as they kicked things into a rootsy groove with catalog standouts like “Gimme Love” and “Marceline.” Charismatic frontman Derek Thompson and super cool lead guitarist Sam Plecker lead the way on a solid set that definitely grew a lot of new fans in the crowd.
