Chvrches' Lauren Mayberry talks Halloween, 'Every Open Eye,' battling misogyny and more



If you want to catch Lauren Mayberry's eye this Halloween, come to Jannus Live dressed as Lauren Mayberry. Or Taylor Swift. Or Elvis Presley. Or Gene Simmons. Or any of your favorite musicians, actually.

"Creative costumes, where you can learn something about the person from the costume they've chosen, are always good," the singer for the indie-pop band Chvrches said by phone during a recent tour stop in Kansas City. "If someone's dressed as their favorite musician, that probably tells you a lot about them. That would be my goal."

To the best of Mayberry's knowledge, though, she's never met a full-on Chvrches cosplayer. "Maybe one day," she said.

Why not Saturday? Touring behind their energetic new album Every Open Eye, Chvrches perform on Halloween night at Jannus Live. Tickets start at $23. Click here for details.
